Fifteen improvisers—only one champion.
Fifteen improvisers enter, but only one will be crowned CHAMPION OF THE GAUNTLET.
The Gauntlet is a survivor-style improv tournament. The audience decides, and players must compete for their affection while navigating out-of-the-box challenges and surprises. As the show goes on, players will fall and the challenges will only get more outrageous.
As if Whose Line Is It Anyway and American Ninja Warrior had a hilarious love child—hold on to your seats, it's going to be a wild ride!
If you’re looking for an alternative to the same old options—like bars, bowling, or a movie—then you’ve found it! Curious Comedy Showdown is a Portland favorite for first dates and date nights, birthday parties, bachelorette parties, company events, team bonding, and girls-night-out! Without a doubt, this show is one of the most fun and unique things to do in Portland.
Delicious food. Full bar. Big laughs. In a word? Joy.
