One of my most very favorite places in Denver to hit up for an enjoyable evening. HIGHLY recommend Hit & Run Musical improv or The Duel if you are looking for particular shows. Improv theater is something near and dear to my heart, and I believe in supporting the local improv scene by attending shows. I would very much recommend Voodoo Comedy Playhouse to others!

We've visited Voodoo a couple of times with our young-adult-aged kids and had a great time. Each show is different but also very entertaining. It's a great way to spend an evening without spending a ton of money. We would recommend Voodoo and are planning to return. My son and I also participated in their Improv workshop and had a great time.
A couple of notes: 1) the content is typically for adults; likely not appropriate for kids 2) get there early - seating is first-come/first-served and 3) parking can be challenging especially if the Rockies are in town

The performances before 10pm are not "family friendly" content as mildly indicated on the website, and verbally claimed at the ticket counter.

The Blockbuster performance was based around alcohol, drug use references, sexually suggestive behavior, and foul mouthed performers who frequently cussed. This may have been fine and funny for people without kids, but don't claim on your website that your performances are for all ages. That is very misleading. It may be true that you allow kids in the performance, but it is definitely NOT true that the performance material is a message that should be encouraged to young minds as entertainment or suitable for them to think should be repeated or portrayed.

Terrible. Turned away since my daughter wouldn't show COVID vax pass. No medical exemptions. Really disgusting

I took a comedy writing class here with Christie Buchele and I highly recommend it. Such fun! And opportunities to get up and perform for audiences. Cool venue, lots of variety.

My husband and I went to see the Hit and Run Musical Improv show while visiting from out of town. It was a cute show and had some laughs but as another reviewer said I’m sure there’s some pretty wide variety given that it’s an improv - I’m sure it varies on the night as well as topics given by the audience. Definitely worth a visit if you enjoy comedy!

This has been one of my favorite places to perform improv as well as see shows! I love the intimate atmosphere, compared to Bovine which can be a little further away. It feels like a divey comedy bar, and there is a lot of great talent and variety of shows. Improv can always be hit or miss since it's all made up, but every time there's something really funny at these shows!

We booked a three hour improv workshop for our company of eight as part of our holiday celebrations. None of us have ever done anything like this before so there was some nervousness going in by some of my peeps. I had booked it after a great conversation with Steve who assured me the goal is not necessarily to be funny, but rather to have fun. That was a nice way to introduce the idea to my team.

It was a private workshop so we had the whole place to ourselves for a three hour block in the afternoon. The venue is really cool! Small and comfy. Our workshop was run by Lizz and she was fantastic. She had read the form I filled out about us and what we were hoping for and she also checked out our website to get a sneak peek at what to expect from us. She did her homework!

We started off with warm-up exercises that were actually a total blast (whiskey mixers!) and then got into a variety of games and scenes - just like you'd see at an improv comedy show or on TV. It was really fun and we learned some great lessons too, such as how to better listen to each other, support each other and work together for a common goal. Lizz made it fun and did a good job of trying to tie back what we did to various professional benefits we can think about while at work.

I will definitely go back for a regular event and am also thinking we should make this an annual event for a company workshop. Huge thumbs up and a very reasonable cost that was well worth it.

My husband and I hired the Voodoo to come to our wedding reception and be a surprise for our guests. From day 1 they were professional, flexible and awesome! We LOVED having them perform at our reception and the guests did too! They were hilarious! We definitely would recommend hiring them for your event!
