Audience Volunteers Feb 7-8, 2014

Two very fun and friendly audience volunteers this weekend!


Chloe joined us for Spelling Bee.


Andre helped us recreate the Newsboys Strike of 1899 during Animatronic Jamboree.



Audience volunteers 5/6 & 5/7

April showers bring May flowers, and also another weekend of spectacular shows here at NCT.  Enjoy some audience participation shots…

Phil Grove seemed to have a lot of aliases…but he and his group were good sports for “Dinner at Joe’s”

Damien likes to work out a lot.  He helped the team with “Audience Sound Effects”.

Ms. Bethune told us all about her students during “Dinner at Joe’s”

Yes…sometimes you get to touch the actors.  But not too much.


Vote for the National Comedy Theatre in the 2011 INNY Awards!

Last year, the National Comedy Theatre was voted by YOU – the audience! – as “Best in Short Form” by Improvisation News. Many of you who have come to our theatre in the past year have noticed the lovely INNY trophy proudly displayed in our box office.

This year we’re nominated again, and this time in TWO categories! We’re counting on you to help us become 2-time champions.  Remember commenting on how much you loved our shows, and how nice our theatre is?

Vote for National Comedy Theatre in both the “Best in Short Form” and “Best Venue” categories.

Vote HERE and help us become 2-time champions!

Voting ends March 31, 2011.

(P.S. Not sure who to vote for in some of the other categories?  We suggest City Hall for “Best in Sketch Comedy” and “Best Comedy Tweets”, and Chris and Paul for “Best Comedy Duo”.  Both teams contain present and past members of the NCT family.)


Audience Volunteers – weekend of September 24th, 2010

Here are the audience volunteers from the weekend’s shows.  As always, thanks to everyone who came to see the shows!

Adina joined Devin for “Movie Reviewer”.  They gave one film a rating of “Two Twilights and an Eclipse!”

Sidney’s family has brought him to NCT before, so he told us he didn’t need instructions for “Dinner at Joe’s”.

Marybeth helped the team recreate The Battle of Waterloo.  Kevin played Abba.

Finally, Johnny B. was a good sport for “Dinner at Joe’s”.  He hates people who aren’t punctual.


Audience Volunteers – weekend of September 17th

NCT had some truly hilarious shows this weekend.  Check out some of our audience members taking part in the fun!

Alexander celebrated his birthday with a little “Spelling Bee”.

Birthday boys Andrew and Steven helped kick off a great game of “Blind Freeze”.

And finally, this very enthusiastic group from Brooklyn cheered on the show – particularly the Brooklyn Queens!

Have a great week!


Audience Volunteers for Friday, September 10th

Another great weekend of shows at NCT.  This week, we only have photos from Friday’s shows, so you’ll have to take our word for it that Saturday was just as great.

Ashley helped the team recreate WWII during “Animatronic Jamboree”.  She played Roosevelt.

Karen helped with “Audience Sound Effects”, in a touching story about a boy (David) and his collection of pet rats.  Not a dry eye in the house.

Looks like fun, doesn’t it?  We have 4 shows this weekend, so come on down to NCT.  Who knows, you may end up on here yourself!


House of Cards Valentine’s Show

Our annual performance of House of Cards was another huge hit. In the first half, we saw the story of the Baxter’s. How they met, their first date, previous relationships and finally marriage and family. It was like “This is your life,” but more embarrassing.

The second half featured our acclaimed courtroom intervention into the relationship of Belayet and Anna. He was suing her because she took too many photos of their lives. All seemed to be going well for him in the court case, until everyone fell in love with Anna and turned on Belayet. It seems you can’t complain when your girlfriend is an ivy league scholar, and you send spam email for a living… He was forced to beg her for forgiveness in front of a sold out audience.

The Baxter's after the show. They were a fantastic couple.

Anna being cross examined. She didn't seem fazed by it at all. Our judge (Dan Guller) also showed that he is not camera shy.
