IMPROV JAM

Every Thursday at 9pm | FREE

Improv Jam is part of our up-and-coming talent night series. You will see new comedians, some seasoned veterans, and everything in between. We wanted to give everyone an opportunity to perform in a long-form improv show, so we created Improv Jam. It’s like an open-mic night for improvisers. Performers will put their name in a hat, and we will randomly draw to see who will be performing on each team. This show is also perfect for current and former Comedy Spot students to flex their improv muscles.

The host will ask for a word from the audience and performers will use that word as inspiration for true stories. Each group will tell three true stories, and then players will use the information from the true stories as inspiration for comedy scenes. Improv Jam is hosted by Kevin Cooley.

Please note: You must be currently enrolled in, or have completed, Improv 101 at the Comedy Spot or completed an equivalent beginning level long-form improv class to perform.
