Special Engagements



APRIL 5, 2017 @ SHADOWBOXLIVE'S backstage bistro, $10

What happens when you gather 40 improvisers, divide them into 8 teams, and let the audience vote for their favorites in real-time via Social Media and text? You get the year's biggest improvised blow-out that gives you a taste of just how big, diverse and ridiculously fun the Columbus comedy scene can be.



Next Girlprov: SPRING @ ShadowboxLive's Backstage Bistro

Women are funny. So funny, in fact, that when you give a bunch of them their own show, they pack out the house. GirlProv is led by the women of Hashtag Comedy, and features funny ladies from all over Central Ohio bringing their own brand of hilarity and quirk to the stage. It's just as likely you'll see them cleverly attack social issues as you will witness them singing bawdy songs about marriage advice given by a magical talking moose head (really).
