Laughing Stock Improv
Laughing Stock Improv is nearly twenty years old, but the jokes never have time to age. That's because, as Utah's longest-running improv troupe, the players have never staged the same performance twice. The spontaneous witticisms are hatched at lightning speed in the comedians' brains, thrown from the nests of their mouths, and finally roost in the rattling funny bones of onlookers. During unscripted evenings, the Laughing Stock pros spin audience suggestions into short-form sketches and entertaining games.
The Off Broadway Theatre
The name doesn't lie—located in Salt Lake City, The Off Broadway Theatre is about as far from The Great White Way as you can get. But geography hasn't stopped the space from staging New York-caliber classic musicals and original comedies for nearly 20 years. The auditorium rings with laughter during beloved productions such as Little Shop of Horrors and The Pirates of Penzance, and house-written parodies including The Adventures of Sheer-Luck Homes and Snotson , The X-Mas Men, and Dracula vs. any number of monsters once portrayed by Boris Karloff. Audience members get the chance to join in on the hilarity during interactive sets from the resident jokesters of the Laughing Stock Comedy Troupe.
