Everyone loves a musical. This one just happens to be about the end of the world. Dystopia! The Musical takes a lighthearted look at the apocalypse. This playful improvised musical is half existential dread and half glitter. You tell us how the world ends. Then we tell you what happens in song.

Oct 14-Nov 18 // Sat at 10:30 pm
Jet City Improv Late Night Show
Created and directed by Margaret Erickson

Do you dare enter the horrible haunting world of the mind? The Nightmare Society tells the tale of a commune of artists who realize nightmares at the sound of a grandfather clock. This twisted improv comedy show explores the eeriness and absurdity of nightmares. You write down your fears. Then we bring them to life.

You better watch out. You better not cry. It’s the 10 Year Anniversary of Uncle Mike Ruins Christmas. This obscene improv comedy show centers on Uncle Mike, a vulgar perverted monstrosity of a man, who twists cheerful Christmas stories into disgusting disasters. You write down a heartwarming holiday memory. We re-enact it. Then Uncle Mike ruins it.

Jet City Improv Presents Show

Danger. Deception. SCHOOL DANCES. Nancy You follows the adventures of Nancy, a typical teenager turned super sleuth. This wholesome improv comedy show spotlights the awkward world of teenagers and the wonderful world of detectives. You tell us a mystery. Then we solve it.

Jet City Improv Presents Show
Directed by Kate Drummond

Biting social commentary. Awesome empowering comedy. Bechdel Test is a sharp satirical critique inspired by the Bechdel-Wallace test, which examines gender equality in movies. In order to pass the test, a movie simply needs to feature two named female characters talking to each other about something other than a man. This all-female improv comedy show invites you to live in a world unlike our own where all movies pass the test. You name a movie. Then we make it pass.

Jan 6-Feb 10 // Sat at 10:30 pm
Jet City Improv Late Night Show

Half karaoke. Half comedy. Empty Orchestra is a hilarious high-energy celebration of all things karaoke. This supportive improv comedy show temporarily transforms an entire theater into the world’s best karaoke bar, complete with drinks, fog machines and lasers. You sing a song. Then we make you laugh.

Jet City Improv Limited Edition Show

Directed by Dave Clapper

One part script. Two parts improv. Script Tease is a brave new collaboration between the scripted and improvised theater communities. This courageous production challenges a playwright to write the first six pages of a brand new play. You see us perform a staged reading. Then we drop our scripts and improvise the rest.

Mar 15-Apr 20 // Thu-Fri at 8 pm
Jet City Improv Presents Show

Sexy, spooky and downright darling. Roxy Music Horror Show follows the story of two squares who find themselves in a mansion filled with campy characters. This fantastical improvised musical is all singing, all dancing and all fun. You shout out suggestions. Then we re-imagine this cult classic in song.

Half improv comedy. Half drinking game. All fun!

Mar 31-May 12 // Sat at 10:30 pm
Jet City Improv Late Night Show

Shot Prov blurs the line between comedy and drinking game. You’ll be entertained by Seattle’s funniest improvisers as they start out sober and end up drunk. Each show boasts a random set of rules. Every time an improviser breaks a rule, they have to take a shot. After they take 5 shots, they’re booted out of the game. Here’s the catch: the improvisers don’t get to see the rules. Our bar (cider, beer, liquor and wine) will be open throughout the show! Let’s wind down and drink up!

May 19-Jun 30 // Sat at 10:30 pm
Jet City Improv Late Night Show
