columbus is funny.
...and we're bringing you some of the best improv, standup, sketch and variety shows in the Midwest.
40 improvisers, 8 teams, one winner. It's an all-out comedy extravaganza, and this year, it's being held at the Columbus Museum of Art!
"Whose Line is it Anyway?" style short form games? Check. Improvised, Broadway style musicals? Check. Head-to-head improv competitions? Double check. The only thing these shows have in common (besides making you laugh) is no script.
Columbus boasts some of the most unique voices in comedy. Sit down just about any night of the week at one of the open mics across the city, catch a roast battle, or hit up a themed show with a killer lineup.
From the nation's largest resident theater, to the irreverent indie show that could, to "sexy sketch", Columbus is home to writers who know how to work the funny.
We don't mean to brag, but Columbus is home to truly creative shows put on by truly creative people. Watch a standup show turned hot dog eating contest one night, comedy mashed up with burlesque the next, or a game show where you can win if you're wrong (among others).
