Improv Wednesdays features four improv teams creating comedy scenes, off the top of their heads, inspired by cast members’ true stories from their past. These hilarious and smart performances start with a single suggestion from you, the audience!

You will see new comedians, some seasoned veterans, and everything in between. All of the performers have taken the Comedy Spot’s core classes (Improv 101-301), auditioned, and now have an opportunity to continue their training through regular rehearsals and performances.

Each team performs a long-form (scene-based) improv structure (form) named the Helix. Helix performers create high-paced, high-energy, two-person scenes inspired by the unusual parts of cast members’ true stories. Characters, themes, and stories continually spiral in and out of the show until they reach a climactic ending. The Helix is an original improv form developed by Sacramento Comedy Spot.
