We’re not like a typical comedy club.

Arcade Comedy Theater is a non-profit arts organization. We’re a theater, a school, and a community. A place to hear jokes that’s also BYOB. We can be an escape or a night out. We’re an inclusive, collaborative, experimental, affordable home for funny stuff. Everyone is welcome here, because we want to make everyone in Pittsburgh laugh.

Show your support

We’re doing something a little different from the average comedy club — all styles of comedy, BYOB, training up local talent. We exist to serve the community as an affordable, accessible entertainment option in the Cultural District, funded not only by ticket sales and classes but through the generous support of foundations, corporations, and individual donors. Your support helps grow new, local comedy programming in Pittsburgh.

Go beyond your ticket price.
The cost of a ticket only covers a fraction of Arcade’s operations and production budgets. Your generous gift allows Arcade:

  • To compensate our artists
  • Produce larger theatrical productions
  • Provide community outreach performances
  • Provide no-cost classes and after-school programs in local schools
  • Offer internships and low-cost opportunities for adult comedy education
