Establishment Stands Up For Laughs This Weekend

November 25th, 2016

As home to Comedy Sportz, the Establishment Theater, 220 19th St., Rock Island, has long enjoyed a reputation as a venue for G-rated improvisational comedy. But over the last few months, they’ve also opened up their stage to more PG- and R-rated stand up. This weekend they’ll get back to that, with the Establishment Stands Up! At 9:30 Saturday night, after the regular Comedy Sportz show, a number of comedians will dole out their dicier routines. It’s not for the kiddies, but it is for the laughs. The last show, which I reviewed, hosted by The Establishment’s own Patrick Adamson, was a... Read More

Chili Three Ways Is Cool And Hot Comedy

November 17th, 2016

Since I began reviewing the shows at the Establishment Theater, 220 19th St., Rock Island, I have laughed harder than I have laughed all year long. I love this place and I hope you all give it a looksee one of these weekends. You can catch PG rated Comedy Sportz starting at 7 p.m. and stick around for the R rated aftershow of the evening. The improvisational comedy never fails to impress the crowd as audience involvement is key to these shows. The actors are all very gifted with communication and have unstoppable wits about them. This weekend’s late night show is Chili Three ways, and the last... Read More

Establishment Stands Up Quite Well

October 5th, 2016

Stand up comedy can be found every last Saturday of every month right here in our District of Rock Island at the Establishment theatre, home of your local Comedy Sportz show. September 2015 gave us the comedy stylings of the very Irish Colin Ryan, hilarious local comedian Dan Deibert, and of course the introductory and in between jokes from our Establishment’s own beloved Jeff Adamson. Now first of all, the theatre was PACKED! Jeff opened up with a few funny tidbits and introduced Ryan, who was fully ready to alleviate any concerns about his lucky charms. For the record, he has no lucky charms,... Read More

Don’t Try This At Home, But Do Go To The Establishment For It

October 4th, 2016

Each Friday and Saturday night, there is an adult level after show following the regularly scheduled Comedy Sportz performance in the District of Rock Island. This is the point where the kids exit the building so the bigger kids can let loose on stage. There is a different show every Friday and Saturday night. They rotate and come up with new ideas all the time to add into the mix. The show from last weekend is known as “Don’t Try This At Home”. Talk about a full house! I almost had to stand up for the show. Luckily, there was a spot by the bar just perfect for me. I needed to... Read More

It’s Your Fault If You Miss The Hilarious It’s Your Fault At The Establishment

September 20th, 2016

The Establishment Theatre rests in the heart of the District of Rock Island just around the corner from Circa 21. Within it are your local improvisational comedy masters and the softest big pretzel you are going to find in the Q-C.  When you make it down for Comedy Sportz, be sure to stick around for the late shows. There are MANY of these. It just depends on which night you choose to come by that will decide your fate. These are geared toward adults, so the kids are more than welcome for Comedy Sportz shows, but need to be safely out of the building before the actors are virtually set free on... Read More

Take a trip to ‘Nocturne Falls’ for oddball fun

August 18th, 2016

If you want to trek to a land of hilarious, oddball fun, hit the trails to “Nocturne Falls” tomorrow night at the Establishment Theater. The show is one of Comedy Sportz’ regular after-hours studio series gigs, a slate of shorter performances with an R-rated slant that hit different distinct audiences, but have one thing in common – they’re all unique, hilarious and improvisational fun. “Nocturne” is part “Twin Peaks,” part Mayberry, part Weekly World News. It’s set in the town of the same name, and the show involves a group of its residents, each chatting, in monologues and... Read More
