Comedy Warehouse Cast Brings the Gift of Laughter to Disney’s Hollywood Studios

posted on November 29th, 2012 by Shawn Slater, Communications Manager, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Creative Entertainment


Last year, alumni of the former Comedy Warehouse on Pleasure Island were reunited at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for a limited run in “The Comedy Warehouse Holiday Special.” For seven short days, the show played to capacity crowds at the park’s ABC Sound Studio.

Well, today I have good news and better news! The good news is, “The Comedy Warehouse Holiday Special” is returning by popular demand. Better still, the show is moving to a larger venue, the Premiere Theater, and its run is being extended to 14 days. Now, even more Comedy Warehouse fans and park guests will have a chance to participate in this uniquely hilarious live show.

For the uninitiated, “The Comedy Warehouse Holiday Special” presents the best of family-friendly improvisational comedy, as performers take suggestions from the audience and add their own brand of humor right on the spot, inventing holiday songs, stories, poems and scenarios.

“’The Comedy Warehouse Holiday Special’ is like a family reunion of the Cast of the Comedy Warehouse,” said Show Director Chris Oyen. “We’re so happy to be able to bring everyone together again for the holiday season and to put on this show. It’s a gift from our family to yours.”

“The Comedy Warehouse Holiday Special” runs from December 23 through January 5 and is included in regular Disney’s Hollywood Studios park admission.

I’m very excited to see the very talented Who, What, & Warehouse Players back together performing Comedy Warehouse shows again. I wish these shows were year round, not just for the holidays, but I’ll take what I can get!

I agree with Alan from IL. There was so much talent at Pleasure Island (Comedy Warehouse, Adventurers Club, West End dancers and even amazing DJs) that I miss terribly. Getting just a bit of that magic back in the form of these Comedy Warehouse shows, even if it’s for a short time, is delightful news!!!!

It’s always great to see live entertainment in The World! The former CW players, The Citizens of Hollywood and all the other performing CMs always do a top-notch job, it’s nice to see Disney continuing to expand their attractions on that front along with all the new ride queues, coming technology innovations, etc. that we’ve been hearing about.

This is awesome news. I miss Pleasure Island so much. Comedy Warehouse was my favorite. My husband and I would go several times on each trip, since every show was different and left us in stitches. I can’t wait to see them on our upcoming trip!
