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.

I have been here several times and have never been disappointed. Every comedian has been hilarious. It's byob and you pay $2 for bringing it into the theater. You can bring a small cooler of ice for beer if you want. Order tickets online for...More

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

Ummmm! This place sounded good and the price was right, but the experience was less than desirable. We went to see "The Musical," which was a improv comedy show, and it wasn't bad but it was not great either. The Acting was definitely amateur to...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.
