    The Playground Theater is one of the country’s only not-for-profit improv theaters. It's a completely artist-led theater company and features all forms of improv on weeknights. Tickets are $5 & $10.

    This theater isn't as consistent as it use to be, but you can always see some of the best up and comers to the Chicago comedy scene.

    The programming is often experimental and incredibly hit or miss, but there's no denying the youthful, infectious energy that pervades the place. Read more

    The Claymore guys and the Free Improv Show are worth it every week. Support their immense support of the community and check it out.

    Intimate setting - occupancy by more than 75 is illegal and only 60 seats. The show was great. Nice cup holders for your BYOB

    Good spot for indie improv in Chicago, never quite sure what you'll see.

    It's a cool place for small events. It's a good place for those who like intimate shows.

    The "Free Improv Show" was easily the worst $5 I've ever spent. They'd have to pay me to go again.
