Event Description
Oasis: What Do We Do Now?

The popular storytelling podcast is live outdoors!

When theaters and performing arts venues around Pittsburgh started closing their doors in March 2020, musician Nathan Zoob and comedian Alan Olifson both had the same question, “What do we do now?” A few months in, as temporary closures turned to permanent shuttering, the pair, who worked together frequently at Pittsburgh’s Moth StorySLAM, decided to turn that question into a podcast, enlisting a long list of their friends and collaborators in the Pittsburgh performing arts community to discuss what performers do when there is no place to perform. Now as we tentatively come out of our basements as a city, it seemed only fair to move the podcast out of the basement and in front of an audience. The question is still as relevant as ever, so join as we find out what, exactly, some of Pittsburgh’s favorite performers are doing now!

Nathan Zoob is the musical director for many WYEP and WDVE events as well as a founding member of Wreck Loose and all-around fixture on the Pittsburgh music scene.

Alan Olifson is the creator/Producer of WordPlay, host of Pittsburgh’s Moth StorySLAM, and author of the collection of humor essays, Manchild: My Life Without Adult Supervision.

About the Oasis

Arcade Comedy Theater presents an outdoor, live comedy series in the heart of the Cultural District! Spend your Sunday nights with us enjoying in-person shows that are refreshing, fun, and safe. 

Safety and Guest Comfort 

We want to make sure that every performance at the Oasis is safe for our guests, artists, and staff members, and we will be asking everyone to do their part in following local and state health guidelines. 

  • Please stay home if you’re sick or if you’ve had contact with someone who has been sick in the last two weeks. See ticketing and refund information below.

  • Laugh through your mask: masks will be required at all times for guests and staff. Artists may remove their masks while performing on stage.

  • Comedy at a distance: all seating is assigned and arranged following social distancing guidelines. We will be seating you based on the number of tickets in your order, with no more than four guests to a table.

  • Hand sanitizer will be available on every table and sanitizer stations at the entrance.

  • The Oasis is wheelchair accessible. If you would like to inquire about accessibility accommodations, please contact operations@arcadecomedytheater.com

  • Arcade is unable to provide public restrooms at this venue.

Ticketing and Refunds

  • No risk ticketing. We ask that if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, have been diagnosed, or have been in contact with someone who has been sick, that you stay home. Arcade will provide a full refund of the ticket price (we are unable to refund service fees).

  • Weather conditions: Pittsburgh weather can be unpredictable. Patrons are allowed to bring umbrellas and are encouraged to dress for the outdoors. However, safety is our top concern, and in the event of heavy rain or inclement weather the show will be cancelled and ticketholders will be notified via email. In most instance, the rain day for the show will be the next evening (Monday) at the same time.

  • Other cancellations: Arcade reserves the right to cancel shows with notice in the event of changes in state and local guidelines or by requests of the property owners. In the event of a cancelled show, ticket holders will be notified with as much notice as possible and given the option for a refund or to swap tickets to a future outdoor show.
