If you're looking for something fun and different to do on the weekend, I urge you to check out The Backlot Comedy House! They are a family-owned, small business, with an amazing set of talented comedians! It was an absolutely hilarious show, and something different...More

This is by far my favorite place in Oshkosh! I have never left disappointed. The staff are welcoming, friendly, and always have me laughing. I go to a show at least twice a month and have never had a bad experience. If I could give...More

We attended both the improv portion and the standup open mic. Both were funny, entertaining, and interesting. The open mic had a few duds, several good ones and one really good one. Lots of comedy value for only $10. The venue is small, and cozy....More

First off, if you go on the First Saturday of the month, they do a deal with the Fire Escape (a Paint Your Own pottery place) where for $20 you get to see the show and paint your mug beforehand. It is only $10 normally,...More

My wife and I were looking for something to do while on our mini vacation. It was really awesome. Friday night they do stand up routines and Saturday nights they do improv comedy. Hilarious! Very small venue with seating for 36. It was full but...More

Be prepared to pee your pants...laughing, or at least pop a rib. These kids are super-talented and hillarious. We took in the 9PM show and stayed for the 10:30PM show. Best ten bucks a piece we've ever spent. Had a couple very reasonably priced local...More

This is a neat venue in downtown Oshkosh that is an intimate setting for some adult improv. These are local young actors on their up, but put on a show equal to professionals. We've been there twice and enjoyed it both times.

I had some girlfriends in town visiting, we went out for a bottle of wine and then stumbled into this place. The show was hilarious - but it could have been the wine. I could not stop laughing, can't wait to try it out again....More
