Historical Figures-Turned-Comics to Roast Cleopatra in Adams Morgan

CleopatraCleopatra is set to become the butt of jokes from Bob Marley, Jeffrey Dahmer and other historical figures in Adams Morgan tonight.

Laugh Owens Laugh is scheduled to hold a free comedic roast of the Egyptian pharaoh at Rendezvous Lounge (2226 18th St. NW) from 8 to 10 p.m. The D.C. comedy group hosted a roast of Moses this fall.

In addition to Marley and Dahmer, Cleopatra’s roasters played by comedians are slated to include:

  • Yasser Arafat
  • Genghis Khan
  • Janis Joplin
  • Edgar Allan Poe
  • Saint Patrick

A snake, which allegedly killed her, is scheduled to host the festivities.

Roast organizer Ahmed Vallejos said the show’s comics picked which historical figures they wanted to play, regardless of any connection to Cleopatra.

“It’s a weird mix of people,” he said.
