Wow. 5 stars. This reminded me of that one tv show, "Whose Line Is It Anyway." Very entertaining and funny. I'll definitely be going back for more laughs and fun.

Quotes & Highlights

  • “Chicago has Second City. New York has the Upright Citizen’s Brigade. And Los Angeles has the Groundlings.” —Los Angeles Times
  • “The troupe offers some of the quickest, cleverest improv in town.” —


Whether it’s an all-improv extravaganza or brand new material being tested on the boards, each week is a Completely Different Show!

Groundlings and Alumni from Saturday Night Live and MADtv are always popping in to have some fun: from Will Ferrell, Cheri Oteri, Ana Gasteyer and Chris Parnell to Michael McDonald and Phil LaMarr.

The Groundlings Theatre is a breeding ground for comedians, presenting original skits, music and improv. Alumni include Jon Lovitz, Phil Hartman, Pat Morita, Lisa Kudrow and Paul Reubens, who created his Pee-wee Herman character there.
