To say 2015 was an an exciting year would be an understatement. Not only have there been incredible changes throughout the world and in our favorite city that we are honored to report on, but the FamousDC team has made some pretty amazing changes as well. This year, our team has grown significantly, experiencing too many “firsts” to simply list here.

We are so thankful to our audience (that’s YOU!), who has grown up with us and hung around for yet another year. Without you, we’d be laughing at our jokes alone.

This year included two parties in Las Vegas, a concert with Ludacris, an event with Shaq, and Rick Klein retweeted us once.

And we’re just getting started – let’s go crush 2016 together.

Here are just a FEW of our favorite moments from 2015.
