Similar in style to "Whose Line is it Anyway," the National Comedy Theatre is a high octane comedy show featuring the Valley's best improv comedians performing a series of games and scenes all based on audience suggestions.The audience picks the games, helps us call the fouls, and ultimately decides which team of comedians is the evening's winner. 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!

Nice, wholesome, low hassle factor fun for a date, or to take the kids. My wife and I went and really enjoyed it... It was very easy to buy tickets online a few hours before (we called ahead, just to see what the scoop was, and to compare online ticket prices to walk-up prices - they were the same). If... More

We were not sure what we were going to see and although it was interetsing to watch, there was way too many young kids to enjoy it. I would suggest a later show, as there would be less kids.

Went to the Thursday night show. It was a lot of fun. They pride themselves on being family oriented fun and I agree. I took my teenage daughter and she was cracking up. I would not hesitate to take my 80 year old parents or my tween son to a show.

I live nearby and go regularly to shows. It's your standard setup for competitive improv comedy. Three people on each side perform skits based off audience suggestions and then the audience rates the performances with applause. This place teaches improv classes and then people can audition to be in the shows. The regulars are really hilarious and quick on their... More

Tonight was my first time at this theater, but it won't be my last. It is great "family friendly" entertainment. I love to support local theater and this is a great place to go on a date, with friends, out of town guests, birthday etc. Check it out, I guarantee you will Laugh out Loud.

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
