Visitors to Walt Disney World Resort during the holidays will now have one more option available to them as an activity offered just during the season. According to Disney, ”The Comedy Warehouse Holiday Special” will be open for showings at select times and days.
The special show will be available from December 25 through December 31. Listed showtimes are 11:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 1:30 p.m., 3:45 p.m., 4:45 p.m. and 5:45 p.m. daily (subject to change). It will be hosted at the ABC Sound Studio (theatre) of Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
For those who do not know the theater by name, it is the same location where Sounds Dangerous Starring Drew Carey is offered during peak times. Sounds Dangerous originally opened in 1999 and is currently only offered during select peak days at the park.
According to the Disney Parks Blog:
“From December 25 through December 31, “The Comedy Warehouse Holiday Special” will present the best of improvisational comedy as performers – including alumni from the Comedy Warehouse on Pleasure Island – take suggestions from Guests and add their own brand of humor, right on the spot.”
The Comedy Warehouse of Pleasure Island officially closed on September 27, 2008. It was shut-down as part of a process by Disney to re-vitalize the Pleasure Island area. New plans called for this area to be titled Hyperion Wharf with shopping and restaurants, however, those plans were later put on hold pending a review by Disney of options.
However, those fans of the old Comedy Warehouse will likely be drawn back in time if they get a chance to catch the limited engagement showings at Hollywood Studios. They may even get a chance to be in the audience when one of the performers from the previous show are participating.
To verify times and dates of the show, please contact Disney. Times should also be offered on park maps when guests enter the park.
