Its time for some Ha-Ha-Holiday fun with the League of Pointless Improvisers!

Each show opens with a guest improv group, followed by the short form fun of Reindeer Games, starring the League of Pointless Improvisers. Our house team will take suggestions from the audience and show off their quick wits this holiday inspired show.

No two shows are the same!
