Cheaper Than Therapy offers a potent blend of humor, featuring some of the Bay Area’s finest comedic talents alongside renowned performers from across the country. Every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, the laughter erupts at 8 pm, with an additional 10 pm show on Fridays and Saturdays. Sundays provide a more relaxed option with an 8 pm showtime.

Forget expensive therapy sessions – laughter truly is the best medicine at Cheaper Than Therapy. Produced by seasoned comics Jon Allen, Jalisa Robinson, and Scott Simpson, the show guarantees an evening of side-splitting stand-up, leaving you with a renewed sense of joy.

As you arrive at the Shelton Theater, head downstairs to the box office to check in. Don’t miss out on the vibrant pre-show atmosphere! The bar opens a full hour before the first curtain, allowing you to unwind with handcrafted drinks and secure the best seats in the house.

While Cheaper Than Therapy welcomes everyone, the content of the show is geared towards mature audiences. After all, it’s stand-up comedy – expect some adult humor that might not be suitable for younger ears. But hey, that’s part of the fun!
