Latchkey Kids

May 28 at 8:00PM

We/re home alone, so come over for a variety show featuring improv, live music, stand-up comedy, and vintage videos from those wonderfully horrible 90s. And 80s. And maybe like some early 2000s. But nothing after 2002. We do have integrity. Join us and special guests as we celebrate the media that made us who we are (for better or worse)! The Latchkey Kids were voted one of the Best Comedy Troupes of 2021 by the readers of Pittsburgh City Paper. Our parents are very proud, but they do wish we wouldn’t curse so much.

Wear a high quality mask

Arcade Comedy Theater encourages all patrons wear a high-quality mask (N95, KN95, KF94). Not only are these more effective at filtering the air, they are also easier to laugh in!

BYOB

We currently allow patrons to BYOB (beer or wine only). For a fee of $5, guests are required to use a reusable drinking cup with a straw, which allows you enjoy your beverage while keeping your mask on. The cup is yours to keep, and you can reuse it in the future for a discount!
