For the first time in 2022, Crossroads Comedy Theater is proud to welcome a guest performance by Thank You Places: An Improvised Musical! This independently produced improvised show is a one-hour, Broadway-style musical that is entirely made up on the spot, created from a single audience suggestion! The story, the music, the lyrics, everything created just for you.

Extree! Extree! Comedy Inspired by the News

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 15TH

Not Yet Rated: An Improvised Holiday Movie

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 16TH

9:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Do you hear what I hear? That's the sound a movie being made right before your eyes! In this fully improvised show, audience members will pick a movie genre and supply suggestions to inspire the cast. Will they be saving hostages? Saving a small town? Saving a business? All of the above? Who knows!

The Future: One Night Only!

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 17TH

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

One of Philly's premiere improv teams reunites for one night only! Doing whatever it takes to make audiences laugh since 2013, this improv team has built a reputation domestically and abroad as a group of weirdos who create comedy that is always more than the sum of their parts. Give them a suggestion and watch as it gets turned into a recreation of the past, a twisted sci-fi dystopia, or possibly a feat of physical strength.

Winter Wonderjawn: A Holiday Variety Show

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 17TH

9:00 PM - 10:30 PM

Crossroads Comedy Theater is proud to present its second annual holiday variety show! This oversized show full of sketch comedy, music, stand-up, burlesque, clowning, celebrity impressions, and more is sure to put you in the holiday spirit.
