Cash Box! A Rock n Roll Improv Comedy Show - 8 p.m. Thursday, March 17, $15

This fast-paced, high-energy improv comedy show features the humans of our A.I. cast. They will use comedy to save the audience from total destruction! Fans of Whose Line Is It Anyway and Comedysportz will love this show and fans of not having fun will hate this show.

Calling all families! LaughFest invites you to be part of the funny during the Family Improv Workshop.
