And it's ALL AGES!It's a fast, hysterical, unique and highly interactive show and the most spontaneous improv comedy experience in the Valley! « less

On a whim we took friends to the NCT in Mesa. Although we had been to stand up comedy shows in the Phoenix area we'd never been to an improv performance. And..... we (and our guests) were absolutely blown away by all the improv performances ! The players were engaged, competitive and hilarious. The audience was participating in the skits... More

Very enjoyable & affordable 1.5 hour show in a small theater. Great for all ages, from kids to seniors. Audience members do not get picked on or embarrassed at all.

I have not seen a lot of Improv comedy shows so I don't have anything to compare the show with except many years ago in Calgary,Canada. The players had 2 teams for a sort of competition. Overall it was entertaining but perhaps not as funny as I had expected. That is likely due to the fact there is no writers... More

We found the comedians to be quick-witted and entertaining. The show we saw was completely improvisational, based on audience suggestions. The seating is theater style (think middle school orchestra room) and not that impressive, but the entertainment is definitely worth it!

We've been twice now and will be sure to go back again. This is an improv comedy theater in the style of Who's Line is it Anyway? Two teams perform various improv games based off of audience suggestions. Each night the comics are different, the referee is different and the games are different. Something you can go back to again... More

Laugh and laugh some more. This is a great spot to be entertained. Amazing comedians that think at warp speed or are they just warped! You, "The Audience" will be totally satisfied with the fun the comedy teams dole out!

The show was hilarious from start to finish. We went on a Groupon but every member of the family said at the end which group of friends he/she would like to go back with and we definitely will. It was completely family friendly - even included one player as Blue from Blue's Clues! - and hysterical. I highly recommend it!

I took my wife and kids to see this show wow it was beyond great. I’ve been to plenty of comedy shows in Phoenix, and this one is by far the best. The show is exciting and fun and the actors are hilarious. I recommend it....

If you want comedy, this is the place. I laughed so hard my stomach hurt. They only charge $12 but I would have paid $50 for this entertainment. 2 comedy teams compete for your laughter doing total improvised scenes and the audience votes on witch team wins. Forget going to the movies to kill a night, go to the National... More

I love improv comedy, so I checked out National Comedy Theatre on my last trip to Phoenix. I would definitely recommend it to travelers, especially families, as it is a family friendly show. The cast was really talented and had great energy. The show is designed to be audience friendly, so there's really no way to not like it and... More
