Battle of the Bits I

Wednesday, Feb 21, 2024 @ 7:00 PM • Suggested: $10.00

In this inaugural showdown, improv troupes from local high schools will compete for the ultimate prize: the title of FUNNIEST SCHOOL IN THE AREA.

The schools competing in this battle for comedy supremacy are:

  • Bolingbrook High School
  • Lockport High School
  • Metea Valley High School
  • Naperville North High School
  • Nazareth Academy
  • Neuqua Valley High School
Join us for a celebration and communion of the great comedians at these local schools!

Each troupe will be granted fifteen minutes that they can use however they'd like to squeeze every last bit of laughter from the audience. Our panel of judges will award prizes for:

Best Technical Improv
Best Moment/Line
Best Game
Best Save
Most Creative
Best Acting
And, of course, the coveted Best Troupe!

We will have three troupes perform in the first act, and priority seating will be given to friends and family of those troupes. At intermission, we'll switch out seats to give seating to friends and family of the remaining three troupes, who will perform in the second act. There will be overflow seating and a screening in Theater Two, where we'll have the show live streamed so no one will miss a thing!

Delicious bites will be available in the lounge for purchase from Kitchen Ten!

  • Unless otherwise indicated in the show description, doors and bar open one hour prior to showtime for most shows. Out of respect for other show guests, please arrive at the theater no later than 15 minutes prior to showtime. The doors may be closed to late arrivals.

  • Online ticket sales close ~60 minutes prior to the start of the show. After that time, tickets can be purchased at the box office, if available.
  • Your tickets are general admission, and we seat on a first-come, first-seated basis. Don't hesitate to contact us for reservations, particularly if you have a larger group.
  • We understand that comedy--particularly improv--is subjective. We're confident in our performers and the shows that we're producing, so if you don't have a good time at a show, email us with your ticket number, and we'll provide a FULL REFUND. You have to--you know--go to the show, though. Other than that, because we have processing fees, all purchases are final.
  • There may be an additional charge at the door for some performances, so we encourage you to purchase your tickets online.
  • No drink minimums!
  • The Bit is an 18+ club, although younger, accompanied guests are welcome. Though we generally hover around a PG-13 rating, please be advised that most of our content is improvised and set your expectations accordingly.

  • If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to us through our website.
