Arcade Academy loves summer vacation!  We celebrate the season with a special summer session of classes designed to pack in tons of great content in a smaller-than-usual package.  These four week classes offer a bridge between spring and fall classes for current students and give seasoned comedians some focused areas of growth.

Support our mission

Keep comedy in the Cultural District!

Arcade is a 501(c)3 arts organization dedicated to profiding a space for artists, audiences, and students to engage with the art of comedy. The revenue we earn from tickets and classes helps those programs exist, but on-going donations and support from our community ensure that our organization can remain in our facilities in the heart of the Cultural District.
