Owner description: The Firehouse Theater has become RI's most award winning comedy and live performance spot with their house group, The Bit Players earning the title of "Best Comedy Night" and "Comedy Troupe of the Year" multiple times and various special events & shows throughout the year. Hilarious improv performances, modeled after the hit show "Whose Line is it Anyway" can be seen EVERY Friday at 8PM & Saturday at 8PM & 10PM ALL YEAR LONG. Plus, they offer additional show times in the summer along with classes, workshops, and private parties all year. Every show is BYOB! Coming for a special event? Let us know ahead of time and we will make the guest(s) of honor a special part of the show. We also offer private parties at the Firehouse. Didn't miss a moment of funny. Laugh More.

Great team of improv players who can really make you laugh! I loved the interpretations Vlad did!
This place is BYOB, small and intimate setting where you can see what's going on.

We had a blast at the family friendly show on Wednesdays at 7p with our 3 boys ages 6,9, and 10. On the way to the theatre, my 10 yr old swore that he wasn't going to laugh because there wouldn't be special effects and it wasn't on YouTube -- well, he laughed hysterically, and soon was all in to the show, volunteering, shouting out. Highly recommend. We'll definitely return!

There were 13 of us in Newport for my sister's bachelorette and we attended the show. The bit players are amazing! We laughed so hard. And they included my sister in the show and it was just truly amazing. The act they performed with her will forever be an awesome memory that we all have from this special weekend. I cannot thank the cast for the fantastic entertainment.

OMG, this was the first time that I've been to a improv comedy show where the audience participates. I never laughed so much in my life that I was crying it was so funny. All the actors were amazingly funny. Hats off to Frank, Elizabeth, Lobo and Vlad. Especially Vlad, he is very animated he had me crying. This is definitely a must see. Oh by the way its BYOB.

We didn't know what to expect but the theater was a small intimate setting and was BYOB! The actors were hilarious in their improv and worked to include the audience but not in a humiliating way like most comedy clubs. Affordable, funny, and a great spot for couples of groups of friends!
