Improv, stand-up, & sketch comedy shows added all of the time!

Pittsburgh’s Only Non-Profit Comedy Theater

Arcade Comedy Theater, founded in 2013, is dedicated to making the Pittsburgh community better through comedy. We feature at least six shows every weekend, comedy classes, family shows, and special events. Plus, we’re BYOB, have free video games in the lobby, and our theaters are accessible.

Most importantly: we’re really funny. 


Each month, two of our shows have 25 tickets available for just $2.50 each, all in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Allegheny Regional Asset District (RAD!). See what’s coming up next!

Kids Comedy Shows

Every 2nd & 4th Saturday, our award-winning family show Penny Arcade takes the stage! Designed for kids 4-11, but fun for every age, this show gets kids drawing, writing, and collaborating and then turns their ideas into improv comedy. Tickets start at just $5.

Sunday Night is House Team Night

Sundays at 7PM is Bonus Stage, Arcade’s improv night filled with all of our hometown house teams. You’ll see a variety of improv styles from a rotating lineup of 6 teams — all creating comedy inspired by your suggestions. Tickets just $7.

Try a comedy class

Spend three hours a night having fun, being goofy, and meeting new people. Arcade Comedy Theater’s classes in improv, stand-up, and sketch writing are the perfect release after a long day doing… stuff other than comedy! What are you waiting for?

Registration is open now for our next session in October.

We've got workshops, too

Arcade offers workshops taught by national comedic artists as well as focused deep-dives by our very own instructors. Whether you’re looking to hone a specific skill or learn a new approach, there are plenty of opportunities this fall!

Check out our upcoming workshops in stand-up, sketch writing, and improv (more added all the time).

Comedy grows communities.
