The Sacramento Improv Marathon is an annual event featuring three days of improv shows. You will see your favorite headlining and featured shows like Lady Business, Anti-Cooperation League, and Improv Fight Club. Our weird, late shows are back – Strip-prov and High-prov. And you will also see some brand new, even weirder, experimental shows. You can buy tickets for each, or buy a pass to see the whole thing!

History of the Marathon

 

The Sacramento Improv Marathon is one of three signature events the Comedy Spot produces each each year, along with the Sacramento Stand-Up Competition and the Sacramento Comedy Festival.

 

The marathon began as the 48-Hour Comedy Marathon in 2013—48 straight hours—featuring all forms of comedy. Every marathon has been amazing! When the Comedy Spot added the Sacramento Stand-Up Competition in 2016, we wanted to give improv its own weekend. So we rebranded the Comedy Marathon and now it’s the Improv Marathon!
