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. 


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