So clever, so creative, so smart and funny! I liked the show so much I went back the next Saturday. The show is never the same twice, so I may even go again.

It's difficult to believe that with two suggestions this 4 person group can go for an hour and a half keeping the audience laughing, but that's what I witnessed at a virtually sold out performance.

This is definitely worth seeing. Each of...continued

We really enjoyed this performance. The cast are very talented and kept the play moving even though it was all improvised. I would definitely consider attending another performance and I've already told many of my friends about it.

Quotes & Highlights

“It’s not theater like you’ve ever seen before. It’s not comfortable and controlled. It’s edgy and spontaneous, original and downright dangerous.” —American University Eagle


Precipice performs a unique form of improv. They create an entire comic play spontaneously from two audience suggestions at the start of the show. No suggestions are taken once the play begins, and they use no preset structure, plot, or characters. As a result, the audience sees actors working in real time, without a safety net, discovering their characters and the play itself at the same time as the audience.  The resulting play is improvised using nothing but the skills, the talent, and the imagination of the actors.

About the Ticket Supplier: Precipice Improv Theater

Precipice improvises a different comic play at every performance from audience suggestions. No two shows are ever alike.
