SAK Theatre Comedy
380 West Amelia Street, Orlando 32801
In the heart of downtown you’ll find the Orlando home of improvisational comedy. “Improv,” as its practitioners invariably call it, involves a group of agile and quick-witted actors creating a coherent and hilarious sketch based on frequently bizarre suggestions from the audience. More often than not, SAK succeeds. Speaking of success, Wayne Brady of the TV show Who’s Line Is It Anyway? is a SAK alumnus.
Typically, what you will see is Duel of Fools, which is described as “two teams of improv comedy stars . . . in an all-out battle for laughs with Olympic judges, official referees, the pink shoe of salvation, help from the audience, and free candy!!!” From time to time, they present “plays” based on improv principles, such as Blank: The Musical and Suspect, a murder mystery in which the audience gets to decide whodunit. Popcorn and soft drinks are served. Unlike many comedy clubs, SAK adheres to a strict PG policy; there’s no bad language and no booze is served, making it an entertainment possibility for your hipper kids.
The SAK is open year round, Tuesday to Saturday. There is one performance on Tuesdays at 9:00 p.m. and, seasonally, on Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. and two on Thursdays and Fridays at 8:00 and 10:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults, but Florida residents with photo ID, and all students, seniors, and military personnel with ID, get in for $12. The Tuesday and Wednesday performances are by SAK’s student company and are cheap at $2 to $5.
