Cards Against Humanity Live blends 'badult' gaming with improv comedy

The audience pitch card ideas to the creators of the game, and the best suggestions are acted out live by comedy troupe, The Nerdologues.

Cards Against Humanity has debuted a monthly live show in Chicago, naturally titled Cards Against Humanity Live.

Held at Chicago's iO Theatre, the night gives visitors the chance to join the Cards Against Humanity writer’s room. The audience pitch card ideas to the creators of the game, and the best suggestions are acted out live by comedy troupe, The Nerdologues.

Cards Against Humanity Live joins the firm's events line-up, which also includes Concert Against Humanity, an annual comedy show and concert hosted by the CAH at GenCon each year.

“We heard from many fans that Concert Against Humanity provided a welcome distraction from the crushing misery of their everyday lives,” said Cards Against Humanity events director Trin Garritano.

“Although I personally did not enjoy myself."
