What is improv anyway?

An improv show is a hilarious and unpredictable live performance where everything is made up on the spot! A group of improvisers (performers) take the stage with no script and create scenes, characters, and entire stories based on audience suggestions.

It’s like watching a live comedy sitcom being written and acted out right before your eyes. The performers rely on quick thinking, collaboration, and a dash of daring to keep the laughs flowing. Improv is a fun and engaging way to experience live comedy!
