Now this tip comes to you highly recommended. If I could add a satisfaction rating, it would have all five green blocks because Seattle TheatreSports is simply awesome! But what is TheatreSports anyway? Well, it's comedy, improv, sports, and theater all rolled up into one fabulous show that the whole family will love! Think of the hit TV show, "Who's Line is it Anyway?", but better.

Two teams of improvisers battle it out for TheatreSports supremacy. The teams create scenes based entirely on audience suggestions and are then scored by a panel of judges consisting of a technical judge, a narrative judge, and an entertainment judge.

The evening my hostelmates and I attended the show, Parentz were the reigning team to beat, but they couldn't be beat because they were freak'n amazing! Thumbs up for these three funny Seattleites who rocked the house!

The Market Theater is located in an obscure part of the Pike Place Market on Post Alley, but just look for Rachel the Pig (on 1st and Pike) and some steps a few yards from her. Go down those steps and follow the signs down the alley.

Shows are Fridays and Saturdays at 10:30pm and Family TheatreSports are Sundays at 7pm. Purchase tickets online for $10 or at the door for $12. Fortunately for us HI hostellers, we got hooked up. An amazing show for free. Can't beat that!
