Helpful stuff to know when coming to our theater


Generally, ticket prices for shows at Arcade Comedy Theater will range between $5 — $20, and are available through ShowClix and at our box office the day of the show. We also accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover and Square money. Tickets are non-refundable.

All seats are general admission. If you buy your ticket in advance, we will guarantee you a seat–and for guests showing up late, we will do our best to accommodate you, even if available seats are limited.

To learn more about our advance tickets, read all about it at the bottom of our events page.

Student Rush

blurb_studentrushFor most shows, Arcade Comedy Theater offers students a reduced ticket price with valid ID. 15 minutes before showtime, we will allow students to line up and buy first-come-first-serve tickets at $5. All students need to bring a current, valid ID, and seating will be limited based on availability. Restrictions may apply for specific shows.

Age Restrictions

Generally, most shows at Arcade Comedy Theater are recommended for ages 16 & up unless otherwise stated. We don’t card anyone to see if they’re 16, but instead we’d just recommend you don’t bring a wild and crazy 7-year old to a stand-up comedy show. There are shows, however, specifically labelled “all ages” and “21+”. Those ones are pretty self-explanatory. You can always call us at 412-339-0608 and ask about the age restrictions for any show.


The Arcade is accessible for guests in wheelchairs or walkers. All of our seating is flexible and adaptable, so arrangements can be made at the box office for any guest. We also have men and women’s handicap accessible restrooms located at the rear of the theater.


While there is street parking available on Liberty Avenue, and in the blocks around the theater, there’s also a convenient parking garage right across the street from Arcade. The Smithfield & Liberty garage (right next to SPACE Gallery) is just $5 for the night.

BYOB Policy

Arcade Comedy Theater allows audience members over the age of 21 to bring their own six-pack or bottle of wine to a show! For $2 per person, we’ll provide the cups and wristbands. There are a handful of bars within walking distance of Arcade that sell carry-out beer, including the Cabaret at Theater Square, The Sharp Edge Bistro, and Sammy’s. Read more.
