About
Unscrewed Theater is Tucson's only 100% volunteer-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to improv comedy. In the style of “Whose Line is it Anyway,” Not Burnt Out Just Unscrewed has been making Tucson laugh since 2002. In 2014, we opened Unscrewed Theater, Tucson’s premiere non-profit community theater dedicated to Improv Comedy. Working without a script, we create fast-paced games and scenes based on audience participation and suggestions. Every show is different because we never know what you’ll throw at us! You can bring the whole family to see our all-ages 7:30 shows EVERY Friday & Saturday night, or turn off your filters for our UNCENSORED 9:00 shows (Adults only, please) twice a month! Three more house teams have now joined NBOJU – From The Top, Comic Chaos, and The Big Daddies. We've added our monthly 9:00 pm "Fridays After Dark Improv (and more!) Show," along with our 6:00 pm Family Hour Show - just for kids. AND you can LIVE STREAM all our shows from EVERYWHERE!
Duration: 1-2 hours

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!!

We celebrated our son's 14th birthday with family at this improve show. We all laughed and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. It was Halloween, so there was also a costume contest. The humor was appropriate for all ages. I understand that they do have uncensored shows on other evenings. Best give a call before you go if you are concerned about family friendly humor. For the price, this was a great way to have a whole family outing that didn't break the bank and was fun for everyone.

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.

I wish the show had been a little shorter, one can only watch improv for so long. Otherwise the actors were funny and it was good for teens but wouldn't be very funny for little kids. It was very inexpensive too.

Improv Troupe playing for over 10 years. Now in their own theater, playing Family Friendly shows twice weekly and two UNCENSORED shows per month. Great NON Profit putting on great improv. Cost is $5.00, worth every penny.

if you like Whose Line is It Anyway, you will love Unscrewed Theater. Their shows are family friendly (except for later uncensored shows a month) and always lots of fun. And for 5 bucks a ticket, great value for your entertainment.

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!!!

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.
