The Show is Albuquerque's critically acclaimed professional comedy improv troupe. Modeled after Chicago's polished comedic style and performance formats, all shows are based entirely on audience suggestions - each night is completely different! The Show is a fast-paced, quick-witted comedy show that's fun for everyone. The cast of The Show is as dynamic as they are witty. Headed by director and performer Alex Knight, and manager and performer Melissa Heiman, The Show's cast includes Patrick Gozur, Steve Lucero, Fernando Fresquez, Lauren Poole and Heather Yeo. The Show's music is perfected by Wesley Swedenburg and musical director Casey Mraz.

Every performance is different ... last night was an off night with some awkward suggestions from the audience, but the cast didn't seem to keep the story line the audience suggested. Still, a great night out with friends and some funny parts.
