Attended 8 pm family show. $17 per ticket. Excellent clean fun. Actual show is about 1 hr 40 minutes. recommend it - I think its the only real evening entertainment available after hiking in Acadia NP. Actors are very talented and truly spontaneous. tons of laughter.

This should be a required stop for all tourist to get them in a perfect light hearted laugh out loud mood for their vacation! Honestly, I can't begin to imagine how they are able to pull off such a personalized, hilarious night that literally the whole family could enjoy! Their talent is commendable but so was the fact that ALL... More

A must-go! From the courteous director who checked us in, to Zac our server, to the wonderfully entertaining and talented crew- this has been by far the best money spent in Bar Harbor! Go and have fun!

Cast was great. Quick witted, and lots of laughs. Would highly recommend. Put the audience at ease and had them wanting to participate. Location in town easy to get to.

Just happened on this upstairs, intimate comedy venue by accident, and glad I did! Only in Bar Harbor can you go to a comedy show with such talented performers and only a dozen or so tables in the club. Drinks were good and the show was great. Very reasonable as well. They took various scenarios from the audience and then... More

My husband and I recently went to ImprovAcadia with our three teenage daughters and had a blast! The staff was hilarious and we were all entertained. I would recommend going to the early show if you are traveling with kids (there were many people without kids also at this show). The later show is geared towards adults. Either way, you... More

Friendly atmosphere at first of two evening shows, weeknight in August. Talented, well-meaning, hard-working cast, including keyboard man who is also maitre d' and producer. You are essentially watching others play parlor games, one very similar game after another, in which they respond to suggestions or criteria chosen by enthusiasts in the audience who come early and plant themselves near...

My husband and I enjoyed this evening. We don't like political jokes, and we really happy none were included. We went to the family show. The room is really small, first come first served so get there early.

People really can disagree about what is funny, but not to worry with this show. Every skit is funny. The room is small and crowded, get there early. You are expected to order something.

Hi Alice. Thank you for your comments. We're glad you enjoyed the show. We do have a waiter that comes around throughout the show to ask if you want anything but we have no minimum drink or food purchase requirements. Thanks, Larrance and Jen More
