Plan a Visit

Here are some things to remember when you attend a show at Arcade Comedy Theater!


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

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.

Student Rush

For 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.

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.


  • may bring up to 1 six-pack of beer or 1 bottle of wine (per person).
  • must be 21 years or older and provide valid photo ID upon request.
  • may not share a poured beverage without a wristband
  • may bring a cooler, as long as it is small enough to fit under your chair (airplane carry-on style)
  • agree to all BYOB policies.


  • give you a wristband
  • will ask you and your party to leave the premises if you become a disturbance to others.
  • will eject you and your party if you attempt to share alcohol with any minor.

Not Permitted:

  • Unchecked alcohol, including flasks.
  • Liquor of any kind.
  • Arguing with us about Arcade BYOB policies (it’s a piece of paper, it can’t talk back anyways).

Arcade Comedy Theater:

  • Reserves the right to inspect all packages at the door.
  • Will confiscate any alcohol not within Arcade guidelines.
  • Will dispose of any alcohol left behind at the close of business – no exceptions.
  • Reserves the right to amend this policy.


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.
