Brown Town

The Cellar Loft Debut

Brown Town

with Jasmine Burton and Badar Tareen

“Brown Town” is a monthly showcase of the top and most exciting comedians of color in Washington, D.C., New York City, and beyond. The show is produced by Badar Tareen and Jasmine Burton–two attorney/comedians of different generations and backgrounds who want to create a unique, smart, and high energy show exclusively at the DC Comedy Loft.

Jasmine Burton

Jasmine Burton is a barred attorney from Los Angeles living and working in DC. Jasmine has performed standup comedy all throughout the DC metro area including DC Comedy Loft as well as opening for Rahmein Mostafavi. She is a graduate of the DC Five Minutes of Funny program and has used that class to propel her into showcases and hosting gigs all across the DMV area.

A blend of west coast and east coast swagger, Jasmine is best known for her high energy, punchlines, and hilarious infusion of the law and her life experience into her comedy. Jasmine brings an edgy, witty, and intellectual humor that keeps her audiences at the edge of their seat… or falling out of them.

Badar Tareen

Badar Tareen is a civil rights lawyer by day and stand up comedian by night. He has performed stand up comedy for over a decade at clubs in New York City, Washington D.C., the Midwest, Europe, and Asia. Badar has opened for Gary Gulman, Ahmed Ahmed, Kiran Deol, Zarna Garg, and Janeane Garofalo and performed as a selected comedian at over a dozen comedy festivals including the Cleveland Comedy Festival, 5th Borough Comedy Festival, Plano Comedy Festival, etc.

An award-winning comic, Badar keeps his material fresh, edgy, and unique. His topics range from racial and religious identity, class, race, fatherhood, American pop culture, relationships, family dynamics, day to day life, and everything else in between.
