Theater seating doesn't start until showtime requiring people to stay in a small coctail lounge with a bar where nearly everyone was drinking alcoholic beverages. The interactive audience seemed very rude to the performers giving the impression...continued

Perhaps I'm spoiled by comedy in a true 'big city' like LA, NYC or Chicago, however I did not find the troupe funny at all and I'm not trying to be mean. I'm not sure if this is a regular team of improv actors, however their timing and sense of...continued

I've seen this a few times already and it doesn't get old. These guys are lots of fun in a very intimate setting. My date ended up participating in one of the scenes - it was hillarious.

Very witty and entertaining. Worth it with the discount tickets.
All comedians were really talented, might work a little more on the interpersonal coordination for more laughs.
But overall, enjoyed it with the 7$ tickets. :)

Lively, funny, spirited show with four talented people, good improvised ideas for skits. My companion "laughed till my face hurt." I was less tickled, but was amused, especially by the foreign language skit.

From the cool underground theater to helping curate the topics of the show, Big City Improv is great entertainment! I prefer improv shows to standup comedy, since its always new, current, and hilarious.

My husband and I laughed a lot at the Big City Improv's antics. We enjoyed being there and will probably go again.

Being improv, the group of five acted out short skits using audience suggestions and participation.

Three of us (varying ages)attended the Improv show and all of us were disappointed. We are fairly easily amused but did not find ourselves laughing more than 3 or 4 times during the entire show. There were many missed opportunities to make the...continued

This is a fantastic show with a great cast. The theater is small with no bad seats, and both my date and I had an amazing time.
