Upcoming shows

Wow, we really miss all of you. A lot. Your suggestions, your laughs, your energy. We hope you're all staying safe and healthy...and sane!  
The safety of our audience and cast has always been one of our top priorities. Even though NYS is re-opening, we have decided to postpone our remaining 2020 performances and workshops. As it stands right now, we will resume performances in mid -2021. 

Feel free to get in touch with us via the contact form, our Facebook page, or email politecomedy@gmail.com.  We would love to hear from you. 

Until we can safely be together again, please take care of yourselves, be kind, and keep laughing.

Tickets Coming Soon

What happens when PI takes on a circus theme to their show? It becomes intents. See what we did there? Not sorry. No, we don't have any acrobats, no one gets shot out of a cannon, no trapezes, we certainly don't have any caged animals, no creepy clowns in a tiny car... hmmm we guess we just wanted to wear funky circus clothes and clown around (sans the creepy) more than normal.

4th Annual 

Oh Watta Night!

Benefitting Center for YOuth

OFC Creative Theatre Center

To quote the great Charlie Chaplin " A day without laughter is a day wasted." Laughing does the body good. It relieves stress, improves your mood, and can strengthen your immune system. Laughing for a great cause is even more beneficial and we have you covered! The time has come to meet on stage and laugh once again for the 4th Annual Polite Ink. Oh Watta Night! benefit performance for The Center for Youth located right here in Rochester. Come out for an evening filled with original sketch comedy alongside high-energy, quick-witted improv and be a part of the show by shouting your suggestions and perhaps joining us on stage (only if you want to that is). If laughter is the best medicine, then we have a prescription for you! YOU. WILL. LAUGH.

Polite Ink. Presents:

PI After Dark

MuCCC Theatre


So here's the deal, we're ALWAYS polite on stage. Being hilarious while on our best behavior is exhausting, which is why we decided to let loose for this show. That's right we're tossing out that wholesome PG13 rating and going R-rated! Shut the front door! Oh yes, yes, yes... it's happening! All packaged up in an exciting, yet slightly different format than our normal shows. Change is hard, we get it, so don't worry, we'll still have witty improv based on audience suggestions, original sketch comedy, dancing, and singing of course - just with swearing and adult humor you probably can't share with your kids. Adulting doesn't have to suck all the time. YOU. WILL. LAUGH.

8th Anniversary show

MuCCC Theatre

8 years of magic.jpg

Eight is so great! We're old enough to dress ourselves, we finally reached another age group for board games, and best of all we can read some amazing adventure books. Speaking of adventures, the audience selects the adventure we take in each improv scene...what if they were able to do that with our sketches??  Well, we found a way to make that happen, after all, we are eight now. So dress yourselves and come on out and help choose how the night of laughter will go! YOU. WILL. LAUGH
