Shows FAQ

What kinds of shows do you offer?

The majority of our programming is longform improv - a character-driven narrative-leaning style of improv - featuring local performers trained at Union Comedy and elsewhere.

As a training center, we also prioritize providing stage time to students and other performers in training, so we host regular shows called "jams" where anyone can sign up to perform. 

Will I have to participate or can I just watch?

Some shows will have elements of voluntary audience participation (most improv shows start by asking the audience for a "suggestion" - a word or answer to a question used for inspiration), but in general you can expect to just sit back and enjoy the show.

How long are shows?

Most of our improv shows are ~1 hour. The Kerfuffle is usually ~2hrs. 

Are your shows family friendly?

In general, our shows land in the PG13-R range. 

How do I get there?

Somerville Ave has free 2-hour street parking. We also have an MBTA bus stop serving routes 83 and 87 right out front and a Bluebikes stations across the street, so we encourage you to take advantage of non-driving options!

Do you serve alcohol or food? 

We do not, but you're welcome to bring your own snacks.

Is there a discount for large groups? 

Yes! Orders of 8+ tickets automatically receive 20% off at checkout.

Can I hire you to perform at my event?

It's definitely possible depending on the details. Email us at info@unioncomedy.com and we'll go from there.

How can I perform at Union Comedy?

If you have an existing improv team we're taking rolling submissions for longform teams to perform at Indie Night. Email Pat at pkearnan@unioncomedy.com to book a date.

If you do not have a team we have two jams each weekend: Scramble!!! every Saturday at 6pm and Sunday at 5pm.

We hold auditions for House Teams once a year. Keep an eye on our social media pages for the latest updates.

If you're brand new to improv or need a refresher we recommend CLASSES.
