I love when a group of individuals of all ages, and backgrounds join together to create something...out of nothing. Yes! That's what these folks do. It's not... easy to improvise, or what I call "acting on a dime." Sometimes the results are hilarious and other times not so much. But these folks do it, and do it well. So if you're looking for a super laid back in person experience, and are willing to roll the dice, make this an option. At the very least they have a full bar so you can fully participate in creating the laughs!read more
We worked with Rise Comedy for a team activity with our 20 employees with the goal of not only having fun and coming together but all honing our team... communication. And that's just what we got! The entire team had no idea what to expect and were nervous but coming out of the experience I can say with certainty we will be doing this again. Stephen lead our team through several games that had us communicating, stepping out of our comfort zone and working together in creative ways. Highly recommend!read more
We arranged to have Steve come to a corporate event to lead an improv workshop and I have heard only rave reviews from our participants. I know a few of them... were a bit apprehensive, but everyone came away with wonderful things to say. Our group is hard to impress, so it speaks volumes about Steve's style and expertise. He conducted a few intake calls to understand our audience and logistics went smoothly.read more

Scheduled a group workshop with RISE for a business conference we were hosting in town...I cant express to you how much my entire group RAVED about the... workshop. Their favorite part of the event, especially since we coupled it up with attending some Improv shows at RISE the following night.Steve and Alex were phenomenal with my group- it opened everyone up, got them out of their shells, and they all said it had massive impact on takeaways they'll be bringing back to how they interact with their teams at their businesses.So grateful for the help and support in organizing the events too- it was fantastic! Can't wait to bring back our next group.-Morgan KnoxDirector, Pro Painter Networkread more

This place is extremely special to me because it helped get me through COVID from a mental health perspectives I’ve taken both 101 and 201 improv classes... there. The instructors are top notch and there’s an authentic sense of community. Lots of shows and classes almost every night of the week.Make sure to come out on Thursdays at 6pm for drop in classes (only $11 and all are welcome) and then stay for the Jam right after at 8pm (free, but please buy drinks to keep this place in business!)read more

Welcome to RISE Comedy (formerly Voodoo Comedy), Denver’s only full-time improv comedy bar and theater!  We offer fun and unpredictable entertainment experiences in the heart of LoDo.  RISE Comedy is the place to enjoy a wide variety of intriguing, original improv comedy, sketch comedy, Denver improv classes, karaoke and more; a well-stocked bar; and a unique, affordable night out that you and your friends won’t soon forget.

We have been performing in Denver since 2008, with The Dinner Detective Murder Mystery Dinner Show and Hit and Run: Musical Improv.  Over the years, our passion for interactive, unscripted theater grew exponentially, and we realized it was time to expand our dreams and move into our own theater space.  After a lot of hard work and planning, founder Stephen Wilder opened RISE Comedy as the Voodoo Comedy Playhouse, on Wednesday, October 26th, 2011.

Our Very First Show
Our very first show on the RISE Comedy stage, way back in 2011!

Over its history, RISE Comedy has helped to raise the profile of improvisation and comedy, both in Colorado and beyond.

In 2011, the opening of the Voodoo Comedy Playhouse prompted the explosive growth of Denver’s improv community, bringing the city in line with larger improv and comedy destinations, and elevating the Denver improv community to a national audience.

In the next several years, the Voodoo hosted many nationally known improv and comedy acts, such as Kevin McDonald of Kids In The Hall, Frank Conniff & Trace Beaulieu of Mystery Science Theater 3000, Paul Brittain from Saturday Night Live, Ithamar Enriquez, Patrick Rowland, Karen Graci, Armando Diaz, Craig & Carla Cackowski, Brian Babylon of NPR’s Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me, and many many more.

In 2015, the Voodoo created its own improv comedy curriculum and graduated its very first improv students, setting the standard for years to come.

In 2016, the Voodoo facilitated and hosted the first meetings of the Diversity in Colorado Improvisation group, which promoted positive changes for inclusion & diversity in the Colorado comedy scene which continue to this day.

By 2018, the Voodoo set a new record by donating $30,000+ in shows and improv classes to nonprofit groups and disadvantaged communities over the life of the theater.

In 2019, the Voodoo was pleased to add Nick Armstrong and Josh Nicols to the management team, as new partners and co-owners.

In 2020 and 2021, the Voodoo was able to weather the pandemic and return to live shows after 16 months of being shuttered.  During this period, Voodoo Comedy became RISE Comedy, in an effort to help highlight our original mission statement put forth back in 2016.

In 2022 and beyond, we are all excited to help usher in the next evolution of Denver improv and Denver comedy!

Steve Wilder and Nick Trotter set up an unforgettable evening for my team, and we had a blast! We had a group of roughly 30 workmates who are coordinating... changes across policies, processes, tools, and culture, and we were looking for a group activity that would enable us to have fun while also reinforcing how best to work with multi-functional, large-scale groups. After spending time talking with Steve, we knew he understood how to take these concepts and translate learning into fun activities. We certainly did not know what to expect, and our team was a mixture of folks who were “very nervous” and “can’t wait to get started.” Everyone learned something and were still talking about it the next day. Thanks VooDoo for a great event!read more

We loved the intimate venue and the VooDoo team was so welcoming and friendly to our group. Thanks, VooDoo, for an awesome event!read more

As a local performer and producer I have always appreciated any opportunity to perform at The Voodoo Comedy Playhouse. A LOCALLY owned business that cares... about the community and gives back whenever they can, Steve and his crew should be proud of the performing venue they have built. The patrons that make up the audience at The Voodoo are always well behaved and courteous, which is a big deal if you've ever played a club that needs security to control a darker type of element in their club. The club is well maintained, clean, well lit and very accommodating and I've always found the front of house crew to be very friendly. The Voodoo opens it's stage to a wide variety of shows from crazy variety like mine to improv stand-up and burlesque and all of these shows go through a selection process that promises to bring only the best to the club. I have friends and family who are disabled and this club is extremely accommodating. The ticket prices are incredibly affordable especially for an entertainment venue right in the heart of Denver's bustling downtown. So do yourself a favor and plan an evening in the city patronizing a locally owned business and gifting yourself with some much needed laughs!read more

I recently held a Sales Kick Off for my company and invited Steve from Voodoo Comedy to lead a session on improv to help our sales team focus more listening,... communication and, most importantly, being present. After completing session, my only reaction is WOW! The energy Steve was able to bring to the team and the level of engagement from our sales team was incredible! Everyone had an amazing time and even a few days after the session, I have been consistently hearing our sales team use and remind others of techniques Steve taught us. Thank you Steve and the entire Voodoo Comedy team! I highly encourage any company who is trying to identify ways to increase their sales team soft skills to utilize Voodoo Comedy. I promise you won't regret it!read more

She gives extremely insightful feedback for... writing jokes and thoroughly explains the joke structure so that I actually could be funny.
