Hunt’s first thought was to put a pitch together and raise some money, but MacKaye stopped him short: “He says, ‘Look, if you want to pitch something, move to New York or Los Angeles. In D.C., we do things,’ ” Hunt recalls. Three months later, the Capital City Showcase was born. The live variety show, which Hunt hosts, is now a monthly event at the District of Columbia Arts Center in Adams Morgan.
