ComedySportz is Seattle’s leading improv comedy show. Two teams battle for laughs and points as they make up scenes, games and songs on the spot, in the spirit of TV’s “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” A referee governs the action, calling fouls and keeping the match moving at a blistering pace. The audience is always a part of this interactive, family-friendly show, and audience volunteers sometimes even wind up on stage. It’s perfect for dates, a night out on the town, or even quality time with the family, since kids love it as much as grown-ups
Housed in a 1909 brick building on the Seattle waterfront, Highway 99 Blues Club and Restaurant is inspired by the juke joints of the American South and the neighborhood blues clubs of Chicago. Dubbing themselves “the West Coast Home of the Blues,” the venue fully embraces the culture and music. On stage, you’ll see regional and national touring artists cranking out everything from zydeco to honky-tonk to roots and Americana. Meanwhile, the venue itself is studded with “old timey” touches like a 34-foot bar made from antique doors and blue velvet benches collected from an old Masonic Temple. The walls are covered with photos snapped by some of the country’s best blues photographers. And to round out the juke joint experience, the kitchen pumps out Southern-style comfort food — think jambalaya and chicken gumbo — while the bar whips up cocktails named for blues legends like Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters.
