I've been here several times and am always thoroughly impressed by the venue, performers, and staff. Great place for a date or an evening with work friends. Can't recommend this enough, a true gem that Salem is lucky to have!

A friend and I decided to go to the improv comedy show last night and had a great time! I was nervous about it being a small place and possibly being called out for something but I had nothing to worry about. Everyone shouted out ideas and the three comedians on stage did amazing at turning it into comedy. I liked the variety of skits and jokes done throughout the night. One thing I wanted to mention is that there were kids attending, so the comedians said they wouldn't do raunchy comedy - which I thought was respectful but also my friend and I were out for drinks and sometimes raunchy comedy is what we want! In my opinion there should be a designated time for "family friendly" shows and a time for 18&over shows. They had a small selection of beer, wine, cider and snacks available.

We discovered Salem's Improv theater while looking for something to do in Salem. We have been back many times since then. Improv (think ---Who's Line Is It Anyway?) is great fun, and family friendly. We always laugh a lot. We have been to some stand up shows too and have seen some really funny comedians. The price is right, the people are great. Not that many people know about Capitol City Theater, even in Salem. Worth checking out.

I wanted this to be really fun. I thought it would be like "who's line is it anyway." It wasn't. Honestly, I think I laughed once.

Was it an off night? Was it because the audience was mostly filled with teenage boys or families? I don't know. But I don't think I'll be back to find out.

Also, if they are going to advertise drinks and food, at least have somewhere to sit with both. We wanted to sit at the few tables they had, but were told that they closed the curtains when the show started so you couldn't sit there during the show, so we had to hold our drinks. Didn't bother with food since it would be in my lap.

I noticed that several people left at intermission, so it wasn't just us that were bored, but since we paid, we wanted to see if it would get better. It didn't.

Everyone in my family really enjoyed the performance tonight, including our 8 & 11 year old daughters. They had us all laughing throughout the show. Definitely something fun to do while in Salem and not expensive.

We were pleasantly surprised that Capitol City Theater was so much fun. We have been several times and each time the comedy has been clean and highly entertaining during improv. The interaction with the audience is hilarious. The food is ok and the bar is a little slow, but the comedy is the real star and worth attending for just $12 per person.
We would love to see them open their bar for drinks and food an hour before the show so we can get seats and enjoy some food before the laughter.

We attended the Improve Show on January 17, 2014. We sat in front row, but all seats are great. It's a small facility. They do serve alcohol but only Microbrews and Wine. Recommend going to show. If you get the chance they do Improve Classes as well.

After reading some of the other reviews I was skeptical of how funny the show would be, but was pleasantly surprised. The content was family friendly and hilarious! I was laughing the entire show and several times to the point of tears. Definitely will be going back and highly recommend this for anyone looking for local, inexpensive fun.

The improv is pretty good and worth a visit. You will laugh. It does not stack up with the best, but you will leave happy.
