Once known as HBO workspace, the National Comedy Theater primarily serves as ComedySportz's home base. Outside groups occasionally rent space, but mostly, the stage is devoted to exclusively to this group, which is something of an improv chain, with 20 to 30 sister teams and affiliates performing across the U.S. The theater is well equipped and professional, but fairly nondescript, a perfect fit for the show's middle of the road nature.

ComedySportz doesn't allow swearing, sexual humor or any objectionable sketch ingredients, so the entire family can enjoy a night out. Private functions aside, there's no alcohol on served on the premises. Instead, sandwiches, salads and the like are offered in the back cafe, with no minimum required. This is an unusually pleasant crowd, void of the typical edginess at most clubs. On the flip side, the chance of catching groundbreaking talent is low at best.

The theater itself is intimate, comfortable and an excellent venue to see a performance in, but seating is limited so plan ahead. No reservations for parties of larger than four will be taken and seating is on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Sketch suggestions are regularly solicited, and volunteers are occasionally requested. Enthusiastic participants seem to have the best time.

If you can't find street parking on Saturdays, use the Laser Pacific parking lot at Seward and Waring. It's usually open for audience members.
