Arcade Comedy Theater Celebrates 6 Years of Comedy in Downtown Pittsburgh

Arcade Comedy Theater, the city’s only non-profit theater dedicated to the art of comedy, is celebrating its sixth anniversary with a weekend of shows anchored by Baltimore-based special guests Casually Dope. The troupe will be headlining two shows alongside members of Pittsburgh’s thriving comedy scene, such as the Arcade’s 4 founders, stand-up veterans Jeff Konkle and Sean Collier, the theater’s original improv team Player One, sketch team Frankly Scarlett, competitive short form show Comedy Royale, and more.

Announcing our 2019 Season

Audiences at the Friday 8PM and Saturday 10PM shows will also have a chance at a sneak peek of the Arcade’s first-ever “season” of programming. See what we have up our sleeves when it comes to bigger, envelope-pushing productions throughout the year — sketch comedy, theatrical productions, and more! Audiences will be able to pick up a season pass to be guaranteed tickets!

Casually Dope, formally known as Minority Re’port, has a residency at BIG Theater in Baltimore and has appeared in festivals across the country — including twice at the Pittsburgh Comedy Festival
