No Holds Barred Improv Tournament

Arcade’s short form improv show where the points do matter!

Every month, Comedy Royale fills the Arcade with some of the best short-form improvisers in the city and pits them against each other in a knock-down, drag-out competition.  Four improvisers face off in a series of improv games and scenes with Matt Hartman serving as the referee and audience members as the judges.

It all culminates in the annual Improv Madness Tournament: a five-week gauntlet where 16 performers face off in preliminary rounds leading up to a winner-takes-all finale at the end of March.
