Patton Oswalt, Christopher Titus and Mike Birbiglia are just a few of the top-billed funny men who have taken the stage at this venue less than a mile from the East Falls Church Metro station, which has hosted other big names from Comedy Central and Netflix, too. If a set from a local up-and-comer is more your speed, catch the theater’s local talent showcase, hosted by hometown favorite Jose Sanchez, which returns on a varied basis.  Bonus: State has recently upped its game with a larger food and drink menu, serving everything from pulled-pork sandwiches and tots to cheesecake, crafts brews and bubbly.
