Four weeks ago we performed our last show…
…at our old venue!
Goodbye old! Hello, new!
Today, I’m excited to announce Blacktop Comedy is reborn, and we’re in Rocklin! We’re no longer by the Roseville rail yard. We decided performing in a warehouse next to trains wasn’t for us. We wanted to try something else. We wanted to find a venue that could seat more people, that offered plenty of parking, and maybe even a babbling brook. We'd also like to find a place that's is only 5 minutes from our current venue.
We found it all (even the babbling brook. It doesn’t babble much in the summer, but it’s quite babbly in the Fall and Winter)! We’re so excited to be performing at the Showdown Theater in Rocklin, CA.
Where is Showdown Theater? It’s on Sunset. That’s not very helpful, considering Sunset is stretches for miles.
You might be wondering, “how often will you perform? Is the team still intact? Will Playgrounds continue? Will classes resume?”
Answers: Twice a week. Yes. Yes. And, Yes!
Blacktop Comedy will remain the committed improv entity it has always been, but now with more bathrooms! Seriously, this venue has three bathrooms! Have you ever met a theater group excited about the number of bathrooms? You have now.
Blacktop Comedy of Rocklin will continue to produce live improv comedy Friday and Saturday nights. Yep! Sierra College and William Jessup students, rejoice! The Rocklin nightlife has become awesomer!
Blacktop isn’t just for college students looking for a night out. Our shows are the perfect date night. Grab dinner at one of the many great restaurants in Placer. Yep! Roseville, Rocklin and Auburn all have some great venues! I’ll prove it. Have you been to Thai Chili? How about Izumi Sushi? The Place? Auburn Alehouse? Get going! And, then come by Blacktop for some after dinner entertainment.
Celebrate that anniversary at Blacktop, or bring that bachelor and bachelorette party to the show. We’ll cast the soon-to-be bride and groom in a game, get them onstage, and make them the star.
Sacramento, you know you’re curious. Make the drive to Rocklin, and discover the best improv comedy in the region. Our players, our staff, and our venue exist to give you a fun night out.
Blacktop Comedy! Do it! It’s less than the price of a movie. It’s kind of a great gift. We’re kind of a big deal.
