    Traffic Jam Stand-Up Comedy

    “I just flew in from L.A., and boy are my arms tired…” Have you ever witnessed a stand-up comedian so bad that you wish you could just get them off the stage, but you don’t have a cane to stick out and give ‘em the old Vaudeville hook? The WIP Theater is here to make that happen. During Traffic Jam, an alternative stand-up comedy experience, you and the other members of the audience have total control of the comedians on stage. This open mic gives all amateurs a minimum of 3 minutes to impress the crowd, and then, based on your laughter, a stoplight will tell a comedian whether they should should keep it up, try a little bit harder, or just get off the stage! You’re guaranteed to leave the theater with a smile on your face because, though the routines may be hilarious, the amount of fun you’ll have is no joke!
