Stand-up Comedy: John Mulaney
In a sketch about hangover cures, John Mulaney plays a patient searching for the trick to partying without pain. "What are some hangover cures?" he asks his doctors. "There are no hangover cures," his doctor says. "OK, so let's run down the list," Mulaney replies. Dry stuff, perhaps, but it seems to be helping at Saturday Night Live, where Mulaney is an up-and-coming writer. Aug. 4-7 at the DC Improv, 1140 Connecticut Ave. NW. Phone: 202-296-7008.
