Laughing Stock Improv

Laughing Stock Improv, Off Broadway Theatre, Salt Lake City, Utah, Comedy It doesn’t matter what you’ve read. This is the one and only home of Utah’s actual longest running and most successful improv comedy troupe. Others may make their claims to fame, but here are the facts. Laughing Stock plays every Friday and Saturday night at the Off Broadway Theatre in downtown Salt Lake City. And have done so for the nearly 15 years. Some of the faces have changed, but our primary goal has always remained the same… entertainment. Trying to help you forget the worries of your day with laughter. There is no place quite like OBT. And, there is no improv troupe quite like Laughing Stock.
