I like the idea that the place is free (with a donation basket at the end to a different charity each night). That’s very cool. Depending on the night, you can see some great and fun performances. How funny it is really depends on who...More

Buy your tickets in advance or show up super early because this show was sold out! We saw “The Smokes” on Monday night and boy, we were not disappointed. At $6/person, it’s a cheap night out, the smokes was a good show with lots of...More

We had a great time at the show. The improv team was extremely witty n funny. Try to reserve the best shows in advance as they sell out quickly.

We actually saw a show at the Sunset location. Extremely funny. We had a good time, but I wasn't crazy about the style of improv. It felt more like a group of (very talented) comedians than an improv troupe.

We went for a special event with the Kimmy Schmidt cast and thoroughly enjoyed it. There is not a bad seat in the house. We showed up early and spent some time in the cafe drinking coffee and watching people preparing for classes, shows and...More

You'll feel the surge of energy of enthusiastic 20-somethings in this intimate venue. The set up of the improv is fun and engaging. Our evening featuring "Sh#tty Jobs" did not bring job stories that were very interesting but not the actor's fault. Ben Schwartz, a...More
