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.

What a great time! Very funny! Small theater so every seat is a good seat! Avoid the front row as the actors stand very close to the end of the stage and you will have to look up. Will definitely go again next time we are in Newport!

Wow, these guys were good. We have been to many improv comedy shows including several in Las Vegas and this one was the best one we have ever seen not even close. They were awesome, especially the lead comedian who orchestrated the program; he was a white guy with a beard and I think his name was Frank. He was absolutely incredible. One of the best improv comedians I have seen in a long while. He did this one bit where they were doing a dating game skit and he had to answer all of his questions as though he were al Pacino from the scent of a woman. It was the highlight of our week. He was unbelievably funny.
Vlad and Anne Marie were also outstanding. I recommend this place strongly. You will not be disappointed. If you're in newport you have to check this out. It is also a BYOB facility.

Dave - Thank you so much for such a positive and specific review! We love hearing back from our audience, especially when they can pinpoint exact moments and details that stood out to them. You guys were a great crowd on Saturday night which always helps make the shows that much more fun! We hope to see you again in the audience soon. Laugh More. ~ Frank

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.
