Want to know how to own “date night”? Want to know how to own “date night”? Want to plan an evening that is unique, easy, convenient, and most of all FUN? What could be more fun than a delicious drinks and food followed by hysterical laughing?
Sound too good to be true? It isn’t! Capitol City Theater, one of Salem’s most underrated entertainment attractions, is directly across the street from our restaurant! Start the evening with us enjoying an elegant yet casual meal, then go across the street to watch stand up comedy or talented performers present a hilarious revue of entertaining improvised games in the style of “Who’s Line Is It Anyway”. It’s a winning combination!
For 90 minutes, a cast of performers take the stage to play a series of performance games that inspire fast-paced vignettes. Audiences shout out suggestions for every game to challenge comedians to find the light-hearted side of everyday life situations.
The shows claim to be “family-friendly”, but that doesn’t mean humorless. These performers are in the business of entertaining, and will have audiences in stitches! Though Capitol City comedy shows are always all-ages, adult beverages and snacks are available.
But don’t just take our word for it, here are some real reviews we found posted:

“This is such a fun outing for a whole family or group of friends. It is great to take someone celebrating their birthday, just call in advance and let them know. Lighthearted silliness and light audience participation so you don’t have to sweat it the whole time thinking you will have to go on stage.” –TripAdvisor Review
“It’s nice to have a place where you can laugh and not be assaulted with foul language or base humor. I dislike comedians that focus on raunchy humor, you won’t find any of that at Capitol City Theater. They are witty and fresh every time.” –TripAdvisor Review
