Improv Incubator

An improv "get-together" for any and all improvisers of all different experience levels in order to keep their skills sharp. Have you never performed improv? Do you not even know what improv is? Have no fear! We are friendly and experienced, and we will happily put you through the ringer... uh... show you the ropes! This Improv Meetup is held once a month, on the second Tuesday of the month, at Blue Bell from 6:30pm to 8:30pm! Come join in on the fun, meet some great people, and have a good laugh while you're at it... you may not want to leave once you're there! Wear comfortable clothes you can move around in, in case you have to Liza Minnelli. ...between the bearded ladies, dog-women crawling around, and Natalie Portman's killer jokes, there's just something here for everyone.

We are open to anyone who would like to attend, don’t have reservations, dues or memberships. We value diversity in age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation – and especially diverse points of view. We ask participants to be polite and to respect the rights and values of others; we discourage arguing and proselytizing."
