The Show is the longest running comedy improv show in Albuquerque, having performed for over ten years and still going strong!
The beauty of improvisation is that every performance is created without preparation and completely unique. The content depends on the audience and the suggestions they provide. Audiences will never see the same show.
Watch comedy come to life as the improvisors create hilarious scenes, songs and games from scratch.
The Show has won many local awards, including Best Comedy Troupe by Albuquerque the Magazine's Best of City and the Weekly Alibi's Best of Burque, as well as Top 5 Comedy Shows in the Weekly Alibi's Best of Burque.
The Show has had the privilege of performing several times with many veteran improvisors who are members of the cast of AMC's Better Call Saul, including Bob Odenkirk, Micheal Mando, Rhea Seehorn, Josh Fadem, and Patrick Fabian.

Written by David Sedaris & Adapted by Joe Mantello
Starring Kelsey Montoya
When a down-on-his luck wannabe actor arrives in New York City at the end of the year, the only employment he can find is at Macy’s department store -- working in Santaland for the holiday season, as a reluctant, but relentlessly cheerful, elf. Newly christened “Crumpet”, our clever anti-hero shares his observations of the mayhem in front of and behind the scenes during one chaotic December, from aggressive parents and drunken Santas, to flirtatious actors, poor hygiene, and the racially charged hazards of being a “Pointer Elf.”
Will Crumpet find a moment of pure Christmas spirit? Will he end up in Santa’s cottage with Snowball the elf? Will he escape with his life on Christmas Eve before being torn apart by enraged customers?
Based on his beloved humorous and autobiographical essays, David Sedaris’ The Santaland Diaries, adapted for the stage by Joe Mantello, is a wry and witty look at the combination of retail hell and theatrical spectacle that is the holiday season, a sharp, narrowly observed dark comedy. The perfect Christmas treat for grownups, this one-man show has been an annual tradition at theaters across the United States for the past twenty years.
