The comedians at Sacramento Comedy Spot, named one of the best places to take a date by Sacramento News & Review readers in 2008, split sides with weekly lineups of improv, sketch comedy, and standup routines. Their flagship show, the Anti-Cooperation League, is among the longest running improv shows in Sacramento, giving comedy fans an unscripted Saturday night alternative to Saturday Night Live. Each week, the laugh masters of the League interview a special guest, such as a local business owner or movie director, and then devise seamlessly woven improv scenes based on the information gathered. Past guests have included The Grey director Joe Carnahan and local muralist Skinner, who were both tickled by the troupe’s impeccable comic reflexes. Upcoming guests (subject to change) include Good Day Sacramento's Amy Carabba (December 1) and amphibian conservationist Michael Starkey from Save the Frogs (December 8).
