Every Friday and Saturday at 9:00pm

The Show is the longest running comedy improv show in Albuquerque, having performed for over five years and still going strong!


The beauty of improvisation is that every performance is created without preparation and completely different. The content depends on the audience and the suggestions they provide. Audiences will never see the same show.


Using audience suggestions and any absurd ideas that cross their minds, improvisors create scenarios and songs that are hilarious and preposterous, letting the audience in on the jokes.


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.  


Every Friday at 10:15pm

The Box performance space and improv theater presents THE HIVE, an all-new long-form improv show. THE HIVE comprises of seven improvisers, comedians and actors, who have graduated from The Box's Improv program. Each Friday at 10:15 p.m, using one audience suggestion, THE HIVE creates original scenes and characters, all made up in the moment. No two shows are alike. Sharp, Character-driven scenes an immersive, no rules show style, THE HIVE really brings the buzz.


Saturdays at 7:00pm - During Classes

The Box Performance Space and Improv Theatre's student improv team! Consisting of some of The Box's best & brightest improv students, Steam takes one audience suggestion and uses it to create a fully improvised performance in the classic Harold structure.


Fridays at 7:30pm

BIG FEELINGS puts their twist on the classic, long-form Harold format to turn a single audience suggestion into an entirely unique full-length performance. This team--made up of Box Performance Space graduates and directed by Michael Lovato--is dedicated to improvisation as a practice or courageous collaboration and play. BIG FEELINGS dives head first into the good, the bad, and the beautiful of everyday life and finds humor in unexpected places.
