In the 1800s, the Brothers Grimm compiled and published more than 60 fairy tales and folktales. Those stories are really weird ... and they're really in the publci domain.

We asked people in the DC comedy scene to pick a fairy tale and read us their interpretation, whether it's doing voices, adding sound effects, or chiming in with running commentary.

If you enjoy listening, support the comedians! Find them online and go see them perform when life gets back to normal. And support the Improv by going to and learning more about venue credits and donating to our staff.
