Annual Pottstown Show

Steel River Playhouse

The First Saturday in January

The N Crowd Returns to Pottstown

The First Saturday in January

We have been coming to Pottstown to perform at the beautiful Steel River Playhouse before it was even built. Our first show was in April of 2006 when they were still raising money to start the theater. We’ve returned many times over the years – our first annual January show was in 2011. This is one of our favorite yearly shows and we’re happy to come back to the fine folks of Pottstown and perform for them.

Fun Fact: Executive Director B.J. Ellis grew up in Pottstown and often makes references to local history that no one else in The N Crowd gets, but apparently everyone in Pottstown is well aware of.

Steel River Playhouse is located at
245 East High Street in Pottstown, PA 19464
Tickets for our show are available through the Steel River Playhouse website.

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!
