Since 2013, Arcade Comedy Theater has called 811 Liberty Ave home. We’ve presented over 1,000 shows, entertained over 50,000 guests, and have connected with the Pittsburgh community in ways we never would have imagined. We’re bursting at the seams and so we’re taking a big leap: to a brand new, custom-built, two-theater venue at 943 Liberty Avenue.
We’re packing up our curtains, props, and lights and saying farewell to our current space. At the end of September, we’ll be ready to turn on the lights in our new home — and give downtown Pittsburgh twice as much comedy as before.
Although we’ll be closed for a few weeks, you can continue to support us! Consider making a tax-deductible donation to our “Arcade Upgrade” capital campaign at arcadecomedy.org. Help spread the word about our move by sharing it on social media (or telling anyone you see on the street). And most importantly: follow us online. Stick with us. We promise it’s going to be worth the wait.
Thank you for giving us a reason to expand, grow, and continue to make Pittsburgh a funny place to be. We love yinz guys.

A NEW HOME FOR COMEDY
SUPPORT ARCADE UPGRADE
After almost four years of weekly shows, classes, awards, national acts, hundreds of local performing artists, and immeasurable laughter, we are taking a huge leap to a permanent home on Liberty Avenue! In the summer of 2017 we’re moving to a new location, just a block away. This custom-built space will span three floors with two theaters, more classrooms, and a lounge. Creating a lasting home for comedy in the Cultural District is a dream come true for our growing community of artists, volunteers, and audience members.
TRY OUT SOME IMPROV
Every 3rd Thursday of the month, Arcade is offering a brand new way to play: Improv Pop-Up Night! If you’ve always thought about trying improvisational comedy, but weren’t sure about signing up for a full-blown class, this is your night. For $20, you get a two-hour beginner’s workshop, some free boxed wine, and a ticket to the 8pm show that night at the Arcade!
