The Backline Comedy Theatre is the best place to see local comedy right here in Omaha! From standup to improv and even sketch, we have the laughs and nightlife you are looking for!

For those looking for things to do in Omaha, we're located downtown near the Old Market and Gene Leahy Mall, plus a number of great bars so you can make a date night or a night out with friends and hit up a few different things all within walking distance!

For those wanting to learn and improve their craft, we have classes, workshops, open mics, and other opportunities to get better. We see everyone from office workers, doctors, teachers, lawyers, actors, musicians, politicians. Our students have gone on to make house teams at the biggest improv schools in the nation, be on national television shows and commercials, even being the main star of an HBO show, and many of them use the skills they learn in their own careers whether they are scientists or baristas and really everything else.
