The comedians at Sacramento Comedy Spot, named best place to take a date by Sacramento News & Review readers in 2008, splits sides with weekly lineups of improv, sketch comedy, and standup routines and coach aspiring chuckle-makers in improv classes. Every Saturday night at 9 p.m., improv group the Anti-Cooperation League interviews a special guest and then devises a seamlessly woven improv scene and a 700-page biography in 15 minutes based on the information gathered. The Syndicate Show treats crowds to fast-paced comedy sketches, guest hosts, and musical intermissions from local bands at 9 p.m. on the first Friday of each month.

Those who enroll in a membership gain access to biweekly Improv 1 courses taught by Sacramento Comedy Spot owner Brian Crall. A former student of Los Angeles' Upright Citizens Brigade, Crall guides apprentice yuksters through improv basics, focusing on a different topic each session such as building on other players' ideas, finding a scene's pattern, and strategies for avoiding eye contact with a Medusa audience member. Pupils can also attend shows, including Harold Night—in which two teams build scenes based on a single suggestion to eventually blend them into one complex story—and the Cage Match, which pits two improv troupes against each other for audience votes to determine which team will defend their title the following week and which must feed the victors' pet leopards for a month.
