Improv is not easy to do, especially when poor audience suggestions are given. This group appears to be relatively talented, but would likely be better served by seeking one or two prompts from the audience instead of six. Additionally, with...continued

While I admire that three men were able to take three suggestions and make a coherent 70 minute play out of it, it wasn't very funny. There were moments that were funny (particularly the scene about meeting a couple of Inuits), but overall, there...continued

Very entertaining. All were clever and did well. Liked the location because of accessible parking and nice to have it in Bethesda. 1 1/2 hours is just about the right length, any longer without intermission wouldn't work. Our troupe included 2...continued

Lots of fun. A pleasure to watch such talent -- and for such a reasonable price, convenient location, and great seats (no matter where you sit).

Inventive and funny. I've never seen improv that weaves a whole play with multiple characters out of a few recommendations from the audience.

Another great show from Precipice. With lines like, "I know for a fact this circus is federally funded," how can you go wrong?

Precipice created, as usual, a hilarious play - complete with main plot and subplots - that was totally improvised from just a location and first line provided by the audience. Highly recommended.

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.

I could have done without the warm-up group. Both casts had members made very little contribution. There was no program, so there was no credit given to any of the cast or crew. No names or experience....

Very talented improve actors and singers. They take audience suggestions and in the first hour create a musical on the spot. Then a short break and the next group comes out and takes 6 places and turns them into a play immediately. Very clever...continued

When I went last year there were fewer than two dozen of us in the audience, this time there was close to a hundred. So word is getting out about this talented group of improve players. They started by asking the audience for six location and...continued

I’m a huge fan of Precipice Improv Theater. Their most recent show offered two of the funniest scenes I’ve seen on stage in months—and that includes comparisons to several of DC’s finest theater companies.

In the first scene, a plumber (who...continued

I liked it, and it was funny in parts, but slow moving. Thought it would be better if it was shorter skits, and faster paced. More like "who's line is it anyways"

Precipice performs free-form improv by mostly inexperienced players based on suggestions form the audience. There were some inspired moments, and the group did well to bring the performance piece to a satisfying conclusion. It was worth the very...continued
