Critical Hit! is hosted by Erik Krasner, Hayden Greif-Neill and Jim McVeigh at It's Your Move Games & Hobbies in Temescal. We've been running the show for over 4 years and we're still going strong!
Every week, we invite some of our favorite comedians to perform. Along with the producers, you can expect to see about 3 fantastic comics and a headliner who'll do a longer set at the end of the show.
Doors open at 7:30pm and the show starts at 8pm. We highly encourage you to arrive before 8 so you can get seated before we turn down the lights start the show.
The show ends between 9:30pm and 10pm.
