The Upfront Theatre, Bellingham: Hours, Address, The Upfront Theatre Reviews: /5

Upfront Theatre

Aug • Couples

If you are in Bellingham for a couple of days, why not spend an evening at the Upfront Theatre in downtown Bellingham? It is a live improve comedy show created by Ryan Stiles from the "Drew Carrey" Show and "Two and a Half Men" show. (Sometimes Ryan will be part of the cast.) It costs between $4 - $10 and its guaranteed to be a laugh a minute. A bonus was a coupon on the back of the ticket. My was an advertisement for a local upscale pizza restaurant that included high ball drinks for $ and we used this ticket for pizza and drinks right after the show!

Great entertainment for all

Jul • Couples

The first time I went to the Upfront to see their infamous improv, I was doubtful they could compete with larger cities. They proved me wrong. I have been 3 times to 3 different shows, with different performers, and each time I have walked away still laughing and amazed. 2+ hours of great entertainment for $10! Absolutely a must see in Bellingham.

This improv theater can be great, especially when Ryan Stiles performs.

This is a nice, intimate theater. I have been there three times when the brilliant comedic talent from "Whose Line Is It Anyway" performs. Every time, I laughed until my sides ached.

A fun night of laughter

Aug • Friends

Five of us visited the theater on a Saturday night. The room was full. We sat in the front row, which was fun. Ryan Stiles was there that night and performed. He was far and away the funniest comedian there. The skits were funny. The first set dragged on a little too long. We were hoping they would do the prop skits, but they didn't. I was told it was a PG show when I called beforehand. It did go a little beyond that. There was some bad language used and quite a bit of sexual comedy, but not too bad. It was a fun night and we all enjoyed the show. I would recommend it and would certainly attend again. Beer and wine are available upon entry. There is not a bar setup.

Hilarious and Fun

So incredible to have local theatre group that performs some great improvised drama for the most part. Good outlet for some unique performances by passionate actors. A hit %? No, of course not. But, I had many belly hurting laughs here. Quaint and rustic ambiance near great bars and restaurants

Chequered

Aug • Couples

I do recommend this venue if you're looking for a change of pace. It is very affordable, so even if the show isn't great, I think you'll get your money's worth. Improv is unpredictable - sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. The show we saw featured two sets of actors doing straight improve - no script or theme at all. The first pair never really clicked, but the second duo was laugh- out- loud funny. You might look for a show that has more of a premise or rudimentary script. I was told that those shows generally are more successful.

Fun night!

We were able to catch a Sunday "Dynamo" show - what a deal - $5!
We were very impressed and would most definitely come back to see this or any other production - awesome local improv. They had a decent Selection of beer / wine - wine by the bottle is a steal - snacks were all packaged - but you don't come here for the food - enjoy!

Small improv theater

Aug

Comedian Ryan Stiles (Drew Carey Show) lives locally and opened this improv theater several years ago. As with most improv some nights are better than others. Upon occasion Stiles or his buddies show up for a special evening and they often have out-of-town comedians on the weekend.

Its a Hoot

Jun • Family

I take my grandsons times a year, wish it was more often. We usually go on Thursday nights which is a school night. We laugh our heads off. My oldest wants to take the class they offer to kids. Drinks are reasonable (soda, wine, and beer) and because they don't sell Espresso they allow me to bring it in.

Its a great way for me to spend some time with my grandkid's and have fun.

Stand-up is a unique kind of comedy. Unlike sketch, improvisational, tragic and musical comedy, stand-up relies on the insights and talents of a single individual. As the comic stands center-stage with the light shining into his or her face, the comedian’s voice, attitude, and timing defines their unique style. Their own creativity makes — or breaks — the experience of the audience.

Stand-up comedians have been entertaining us — and making us see the world in new ways — since the variety and burlesque shows that flourished in New York City’s turn-of-the-century vaudeville theater. That hilarious, occasionally gritty and unpredictable, stand-up tradition continues here in Whatcom County.

Below we’ve profiled a few of the Bellingham venues that regularly offer and support this beloved art form that continues to make us laugh until we cry.

Guffawingham at The Green Frog Acoustic Tavern

The free Monday night open mic, Guffawingham, at the Green Frog Acoustic Tavern — known around town as simply, The Frog — has provided both emerging and seasoned local and regional comedians an opportunity to try new bits in front of a willing audience.

Local actor, writer, producer and comedian Glen Nelson Bristow did his first stand-up set at a Guffawingham open mic when it was just getting started. “Since 2013, Monday nights at Guffawingham have been a fun chance to see new comedians learning the ropes,” notes Bristow. “My stand-up sets, like many comedians, are largely about relationships.”

The Frog is a Bellingham staple with an industrial vibe and quality sound. While listening to the numerous short sets, patrons can enjoy great local beers, a wide variety of whiskey, or their famous grilled cheese sandwiches. My favorite is the Michael Boston: cheddar, bacon, corn and barbeque sauce grilled on thick bread to perfection.

Stand-Up at The Upfront Theatre

The 100-seat cabaret-style Upfront Theatre, owned by famed “Whose Line is it Anyway?” comedian Ryan Stiles, offers stand-up on the first Thursday of each month. Stand-up is hosted by Mainstage Ensemble member Cecilee Beck and costs only $5. The stand-up show follows the long-time improv show The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly, where Stiles himself will occasionally surprise the audience with his own clever, and sometimes devious, improv performance. Many patrons enjoy a full evening of laughs by taking in both shows at this all-ages venue that also offers wine, beer and snacks.

“Once a month at Comedy Nite, local folks can see professional comedians who’ve been honing their craft for decades,” adds Bristow. “The larger events are held in the Grand Ballroom.”

Voted by The Best of the Northwest for Best Cocktails and Best Bar and Lounge, Comedy Nite is held often on Friday or Saturday nights and includes a variable cover charge from $10 to $25. You can arrive early to get a good seat and enjoy appetizers or dinner there too if you like.

Affordable drink prices and a cover around $6 makes this place a favorite with local comedians and patrons alike.

You can make an evening of it by arriving early to play on the 18 pinball tables next door at the Racket Bar and Pinball Lounge.
