FIVE STARS from every paper in town at some point!

7 Minutes in Kevin

Jokes, stories, music, and maybe a little more. Personal, powerful, dark and silly.

This Won’t Hurt, I Promise

Anxiety. Phantom bedbugs. An eccentric kink. Writer/performer Elena Belyea’s stand-up hybrid is a balm for trying times.

Vavianna Vardot’s Famous Sex Party

Every midnight you can expect sensual silliness, lewd buffoonery, dirty songs and the funniest smut you’ve ever had the displeasure of stumbling across.

Magic Michael XXS

The dancers are untrained, the bodies are unedited and the music? Unknown to the performers. Have you worked all day? Join us to work it all night!

Kidding Around

Rapid Fire Theatre’s hilarious performers create an entire show off the top of their heads, with help from the youngsters in the audience!

Off Book: The Improvised Musical

Witness spontaneous songs, dance, and emotional outburst, as this talented cast of improvisers create an entire musical based off one suggestion, from you. 

Gordon’s Big Bald Head: The Heist is Right

Watch in awe as comedy titans improvise their own version of ANY OTHER SHOW AT THE FESTIVAL! 

Late Night Cabaret

A musically-charged variety show featuring current fringe artists, special guests and Fringe’s (under) house (arrest) band Ze Punterz


Bots write scripts. Performers act them out. Then they improvise the ending. Hilarity ensues.

The Big Stupid Improv Show

THE BIG STUPID IMPROV SHOW is all about bringing together a random assortment of performers who are thrown together in a big, fun improv jamboree!
