Description of Pictures: Two Faces Comedy Series at President Lincoln's Cottage
"I leave it to my audience: If I had two faces, would I be wearing this one?” - Abraham Lincoln, 1858
Back by popular demand, and drawing inspiration from Abraham Lincoln's legendary humor and self-deprecation, President Lincoln's Cottage and The DC Improv are again partnering to present Two Faces Comedy, the first comedy series to transform Lincoln's living room into a comedy den! Each show is meant to be inspired by some aspect, silly or serious, of Lincoln's legacy or the history of the cottage.
This will be a series of comedy nights, beginning on September 25, and continuing October 24 and November 14. Doors open at 7pm, all shows begin at 7:30pm.
The Lincolns were parents to four boys - the younger two of whom had a reputation for interrupting their dad's meetings and generally doing whatever they liked whenever they wanted. Our September show features a stand-up showcase focused on parenting. The Lincolns used the Cottage as a family retreat for three summers in a row, and our performers will honor that history by complaining (lovingly) about their own kids.
ABOUT THE PERFORMERS
Phil Mike is a Washington DC-based comic who’s performed on many of the top stages in the region. He entertains wide arrays of audiences with his relatable, honest takes on life. He’s opened for Alingon Mitra, Andy Haynes and Eliot Chang.
Elena Torres is a Spanish-American telenovela actress turned stand-up comedian. No, that is not a joke. After several hit telenovelas in Mexico under her belt, she fell in love with a nice Jewish East Coast guy and realized her heart wasn’t in on-camera face slapping anymore. So she took the next logical artistic step from doing melodrama in Spanish; she started performing stand-up comedy in English. She threw out her telenovela push up bra, moved to the East Coast and has performed in venues all over the country. She also has a sketch page called Human Factor Comedy. (Ok ok, she didn’t throw out her push up bra – those things are expensive … and they work wonders – but you get the idea.)
Katie McKelvie is a comedian and humor writer whose comedic style has been described as "tired mom who has to run to the grocery store after this show to pick up some bananas." Katie can be seen performing all over the Washington, D.C. area and has featured at the Cleveland Comedy Festival, She-Devil Comedy Festival, the Charm City Comedy Festival, and the North Carolina Comedy Festival. In her spare time, she enjoys a fleece blanket, a comfort shoe, and naps.
During the day Haywood Turnipseed Jr.is a Husband, a Dad, a Telephone Man, and a Jedi; at night he becomes a Stand-Up Comic, and occasionally a Sith Lord. Haywood likes both Michael Jackson's & Prince's Music; Hip-Hop; The Pittsburgh Steelers Football Team; Mambo Sauce on chicken wings; and Laughing. Originally from the Holy Land of Indiana, Haywood graduated from high school in Moon Township, Pa., attended two semesters at Waynesburg College, then enlisted in the US Air Force.

I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, some system options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm sure you're thrilled by your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at email@example.com and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.
Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
