ABOUT THE BACKLINE



The Backline is proud to be a home for all comedy in Omaha. While we are primarily a longform improv training center, any and all local comedians come through here to perform improv, standup, sketch, talk shows, etc. We keep our shows cheap and our beer cheap, with no drink minimum. We just want to help Omaha become one of the greatest cities for comedy in America.




We are also proud to ride that fine line between producing basically uncensored comedy but also being a safe place with zero tolerance for abuse and harassment.
