I thought it was great and will definitely attend another one of their shows. It was extremely professional, funny and engaging. The show was so good that at times, I forgot I was watching improv. The 4 actors created two stories that they made up in parallel, switching back and forth between the two throughout the evening, and each actor played multiple roles - so impressive. Make no mistake, these are very professional improv actors with a lot of experience. We really had a good time and have told others they should go.

BATS Improv, fifteen-time winner of “Best of the Bay” accolades, presents a night of improvisational theatre in a format called “Double Feature,” where two completely improvised “films” unfold simultaneously before your eyes. At the top of the show, the audience is asked for two original “titles of movies that have never been made.” The improvisers use those titles to create two distinct stories, unique in genre, tone, and character.
It’s one of BATS’ most popular formats. Audiences enjoy watching just four improvisers play multiple characters (often in the same scene). Bouncing back and forth between two stories keeps the action lively. Directed by format creator Rafe Chase.
