Overview
More
The Show is Albuquerque's critically acclaimed professional comedy improv troupe. Modeled after Chicago's polished comedic style and performance formats, all shows are based entirely on audience suggestions - each night is completely different! The Show is a fast-paced, quick-witted comedy show that's fun for everyone. The cast of The Show is as dynamic as they are witty. Headed by director and performer Alex Knight, and manager and performer Melissa Heiman, The Show's cast includes Patrick Gozur, Steve Lucero, Fernando Fresquez, Lauren Poole and Heather Yeo. The Show's music is perfected by Wesley Swedenburg and musical director Casey Mraz.

Every performance is different ... last night was an off night with some awkward suggestions from the audience, but the cast didn't seem to keep the story line the audience suggested. Still, a great night out with friends and some funny parts.

This is a difficult review to write because there are a wide variety of tastes. I guess I am more of a stand up comedy guy and this is not that. Since this is unrehearsed improv, the comedy is in the creativity and awkwardness of...More

Went to see the improv show at the box on a Saturday night. The show was great. The theater is small and asks for ideas from the audience. We laughed hard. I was impressed that the actors kept it entertaining but also kept it PG13,...More

I am a fan of SCTV, and Saturday Night live so to see an improv troupe that literally works off of what the audience provides is a rare gem. "Du-op song about a dating pet peeve, with harmonies priceless. A tall bearded man playing the...More
