Third Thursdays Improv

Ruba Club

The third Thursday of every month, the N Crowd performs at the Ruba Club in Northern Liberties neighborhood of Philadelphia. Each month, we invite a local independent improv team to open for us, to offer performance opportunities for new performers and to introduce new audiences to emerging comedians!

Ruba is your neighborhood concert hall, theater & cabaret space, wedding & party venue, speakeasy, and hangout. They host private events and after-hours adventure, cocktails, atmosphere, dancing, ping-pong, & pool. Ruba has 2 floors hosting a vaudeville style ballroom-theater, and a vintage cabaret-speakeasy bar

There is a cash bar at the Ruba Club (and an ATM!) Come on out, bring some friends, and have a few laughs with us. After the show the bar will stay open.

The Ruba Club is located at 416 Green Street in Philadelphia.
Tickets are $12 online and $15 at the door.
The Ruba Club is 21 and over. No one under 21 will be admitted.

Looking for what to do in Philadelphia?

The N Crowd is the answer for a fun night of laughs in the City of Brotherly Love!

Since 2005 The N Crowd has performed short-form improv comedy for thousands of people. See us every Friday at 7 pm at the Philly Improv Theater. 2030 Sansom Street, Philadelphia PA. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door.

The N Crowd has performed over 800 times in the Philadelphia as well as improv festivals in Toronto, Richmond, Baltimore, and North Carolina. We are one of the best comedy shows in Philadelphia and have won “Best Comedy Club” on the Philly Hot List several times over the past decade. When you are looking for comedy shows in Philadelphia that have massive audience participation and are entirely unscripted, our show is the Friday night comedy show for you!

What is improv comedy? It is entirely unscripted, and no two shows are ever the same. With over a dozen members in our troupe, you’ll never see the same collection of performers twice. We take audience suggestions and craft a scene around it. You are a crucial part of the show! We are one of the longest running Philly Comedy shows for a reason. Come out to one of our improv comedy shows this Friday and share a laugh with us!

While we perform improv comedy every Friday night in Philadephia at the Philly Improv Theater, we are also available for hire! We’ve performed improv comedy for birthdays, conferences, bachelor and bachelorette parties, and other special events. Our comedy troupe can come to you, or you can come to us. Contact us today, and we’ll be able to find the right comedy solution for you. We have years of experience and can tailor our show to fit your needs!
