About
Unscrewed Theater, a 100% volunteer-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is dedicated to teaching, performing, and producing all forms of live improvisational theater in Tucson, AZ. Not Burnt Out Just Unscrewed (NBOJU), Unscrewed Theater’s original house team, has been around since 2002. Emulating the improv greats - Second City, The Groundlings, iO, Comedy Store Players, etc. - Not Burnt Out Just Unscrewed has grown from an experiment into a phenomenon, providing Southern Arizona with 16+ years of entertainment! Three more improv teams have joined NBOJU in the last five years - From The Top, Comic Chaos, and Big Daddies. The Improv Funny has just begun. You can bring the whole family to see our 7:30 shows on Friday and Saturday night, or turn off your filters for our 17+ UNCENSORED shows!

My teen kids and I were in town for the weekend, and wanted to try something new. We all thought this show was smart, funny, entertaining, and a great way to spend a couple of hours. Highly recommended!!!

Lots of fun for the whole family

Looking for something affordable to do on a Friday or Saturday evening? Look no further than the Unscrewed Theatre on Speedway. An all volunteer cast of local funny people do improve in the style of Whose Line Is It... Family friendly shows and 2x a month, they go uncensored for a late night adult show. How fun the show is depends on how much the audience interacts with the cast. I have never failed to spend the hour laughing! Great for date night or groups of friends looking for fun! They are non profit and volunteer run, committed to laughter because its fun!!

Great Inexpensive Entertainment
Sep 2018 • Family
My wife, teen daughter and I recently attended the grand opening of Unscrewed Theater's new location. They continue their tradition of providing great clean improv comedy for all ages at a reasonable price (Don't worry, they offer some uncensored shows too.) The audience inspired skits are hilarious and the comedians are top notch. Take the whole family. Believe you'll return again again, just like my family has.

Cheap 75 minute show for $5 - but average improv.
Jan 2018 • Solo
I watch a lot of improv in my life. This place have average improv. It's not great. Tucson Improv movement has better improv in town. However, I have to mention that the tickets are very cheap at $5. However, I have to mention that this is a community theatre so their mission is different from other improv shows. They are very selective about the suggestion that they take from the audience. They don't always take the first suggestion and they tend to amend the suggestion. I watched their musical and they really need live arrangement. However, the players select their own arrangement from a mobile device on a music stand. So the music really isn't improvised only the lyrics.

Best Entertainment for the Price!

Went on a Saturday to the 7:30 "family-friendly" improv show. Laughed so hard at "feral chicken" jokes I had tears running down my face. 6-person troupe performs for about 75 minutes. Most comfortable seating I have ever seen at a theater of this type. Nice stage, lights, etc. Sound was good.

What a delight!
Often improv can be bawdy. Family friendly improv is refreshing and great fun.
Kudos to the cast.
Kudos to the volunteers who made this possible.

Worth $5
Mar 2017 • Friends
Never having been to an IMPROV theater, wasn't sure what to expect. Certainly worth the $5 admission price. Some of the actors more funny than others. Feel like some of the "games" went on too long. All in all a good hour of fun.

Took the family after finding this online and found the best value for $20 in town. The theater was clean, the volunteers were awesome and the show was very funny.

We really enjoyed watching the show had some great laughs and will be going back during our next trip to Tucson

Missed the parking the first time, turn at Walgreens and you will be set

What fun!
Dec 2016 • Solo
This is an IMPROV theater which is inexpensive and provides you with a fun evening of entertainment for ONLY $5.00! You can not beat that anywhere. The Improve comedians do there shows usually on Fridays and Saturdays. The Saturday late shows on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays are ADULT only but the Friday and Saturday 7:30 shows are family friendly. Comfortable seating and some refreshments available BUT NO ALCOHOL. Totally run by volunteers. Note that parking is in the back and so is the entrance. Can go with family, friends - as a couple or solo. Best to go on line and get reservations but if there is room you can get tickets at the door. ENJOY!
