This show and theater are hidden gems in downtown Pittsburgh. The Smallest Show is usually the 3rd Saturday at 7pm. A mixture of music, music, stories, audience participation, and always fun. I’m a regular fan but all feel part of the show.

The Gallery Crawl is a time to sample the cultural arts of Pittsburgh and this 30 minute improve presentation at the Arcade was wonderful. If I'm back in Pitt I'll be sure to come for a full show...the talent here is very good.

Intimate, very clean venue with great views from all seats. Welcome to bring your own wine. (They uncork it for you.) Prices are very reasonable and the comedy is top-notch. Thoroughly enjoyed the show and will make of point of going back.

We really enjoyed the many acts on Friday night. Be sure to order tickets online to benefit with saving some $ on byob corkage. We will definitely return on our next visit!

This little non profit theater is a bit of a secret in Pittsburgh. In the heart of the cultural district and near restaurants and public transit. Make a date night or go with friends. Get your tickets in advance and BYOB for the best prices....More

Recently, my nephew raved about the Arcade theater. I hadn't heard of it. But, good comedy is worth its weight; and good improv comedy can be amazing. This is a small, intimate theater that is actually a non-profit. Well, they obviously deliver because through donations...More

I do not believe under 18 is allowed, but wouldn't recommend them if they are. Some of the improv, while funny, can get a bit off color. However, check with the theater, because they do offer shows that are appropriate for... More

Yep! Although depending on the show, the theater often announces a discount at the end of the first show for people who want to stay.
