We are Marching right into some really cool comedy events at NCT. With special guests, Holiday Shows, Improv Uncensored and More! Check out what we have got geared up and ready to rock for you this month at NCT!
Improv comedy shows always rely on YOU (the Audience!) shouting out suggestions to inspire spontaneous scenes and improv games. At Suggestion Box Improv Comedy Shows the suggestions and inspirations for each scene and game come from a different and interesting source! Bring an interesting object, a book, a magazine, a photograph… the comedians use these interesting and unusual “suggestions” to create comedy magic on the spot!
Don’t miss this exciting show!

Thursday March 30th $7:30pm $8 Ages 17+
Get ready for the excitement of the Phoenix Improv Festival at this Preview Night performance! The hilarity includes totally spontaneous performances from some of the amazing improv teams you will see at this year’s festival.
With members from every part of this fresh nation, one audience suggestion brings Spearmint together to create different themes and worlds for the group to explore. Spearmint has been performing together since January 2014 and is a Harold team at the Torch Theatre in Phoenix Arizona. Spearmint has performed in the Del Close Marathon in NYC in 2014 and 2015. They have also performed at the 2016 Phoenix Improv Festival. Spearmint is currently coached by Bill Binder.
Based out of Phoenix, Az. Marisol Chavez and Sara Palmer make up the long-form improv duo, Laura Ingalls. If you enjoy people watching or have ever wanted to be a fly on the wall, Laura Ingalls gives you a front row seat into the lives of characters and situations based on a single suggestion.
And…. Coming Soon…
The completely spontaneous fun of the NCT Improv Comedy Show gets a crazy twist at Show in Reverse!

The Battle Panel: Destruction of Earth
Thursday April 20th 7:30pm, a FREE Event
Giant asteroids. Aliens from outer space. Environmental disasters. Enchanted jewelry that can only be destroyed in the heart of a volcano that is really, really far away….
Throughout pop culture history the earth has sat on the brink of destruction many times, but which is the scariest, the most absurd or the most unrealistic? Find out as a panel of comedians debate and YOU (the Audience!) decide who wins!
This show is similar to the interactive discussion panels you might see at a comicon. Various topics are introduced, the comedian’s make a case for each side and then audience applause determines the winner of that category. It is interactive, it is a lot of fun, and it is FREE! So don’t hesitate, make your reservation today before the planet explodes!
We can’t wait to see you at the show, get your tickets today for all of these exciting events.
