"Ask Your Father"

Q: What are COVID-19 Policies? 

Our COVID policies vary from show to show due to artist contracts, seating design, and other factors. The comfort and safety of our audience and performers always comes first. Please read the ticketing information carefully before purchasing your ticket- we will not refund tickets that are unable to be used due to COVID protocols.

Q: Do you buy memorabilia?

Yes! We're always happy to take a look at your collection- we don't buy everything, but offer competitive prices on pieces and collections that we are interested in.

Q: What's the Alcohol Policy? 

We are fully BYOB Venue, there are multiple bars nearby, and a wine store next door, that are happy to sell to-go beverages. Please note there is a small one time corking fee upon entry for every member of your party who will be drinking.

Q: Are your shows all ages?

We are happy to present our shows for all who wish to attend, but please note that some of our shows may include adult themes and language. Read a show's description before coming!

Q: Do you do Public Signings? 

Yes! Our shop frequently features autograph/meet and greet events by celebrities and athletes. Check our schedule and our social media for the latest announcements.

Q: What if I'm late?

Due to our venue's intimate nature, we take late arrivals more seriously than others- if you believe you may be running late please contact the theater as soon as possible. All seats unfilled 5 minutes before the show may be resold to our standby line. (This rule may vary by show)

Q: The Show sold out! Now what? 

We offer a standby line for all shows that have sold out. Please arrive before the show, check in with our box office, and find the standby line. Tickets will be released in the order you've arrived, parties may be split up.

Q: How can I be part of this?

We're always looking for talent to add to our community. And unlike other comedy theaters, we do not believe in mandating classes before you're able to participate in our in-house shows. We're proud to have a diverse creative team of varying backgrounds and interests- email us for more info!

Q: When are Shows announced? 

Typically we release our calendars 1.5 months in advance (the 15th of every month), although some shows may be announced earlier or added later- join our email club at the bottom of this page to never miss an announcement!

Q: Can I rent the Basement?

Absolutely! We love the Basement- and your group/organization probably will too! Please email us with your event type/dates and we'll be happy to discuss!

Q: How do I get there? 

We are located on Dormont's central business street, steps from the Potomac T Station. Ample paid parking is also available on Espy Ave.

Q: I love to heckle, any advice?

Do it somewhere else.

Q: My question isn't on here. 

Technically, that's not a question. But we're always happy to answer questions via email, check the Contact page!
