fun - simple, silly fun. I plan on returning to catch them again. with Improv, you never know what to expect, and you won't see the same thing twice.

Scriptease is an amazing show that my friends and I have looked forward to each and every Sunday. I've never seen a more spirited and cohesive group of improv actors ever, and I've seen a lot of improv. The added "strip poker" aspect just adds to...continued

Quotes & Highlights

“A continual source of enjoyment for the audience thoughout the night.” —The GoodTimes
“Risqué, definitely high-risk improv…with bumps and grinds so skillful that the Chippendales could take lessons.” —The Sentinel
“A raucous, hilarious performance that challenges conventional notions of theater and performance art.” —The Santa Cruz Guide


ScripTease, the World’s only stripping improv troupe, now into its 9th year of producing high-risk, risque improv comedy, was founded by and Johnny Davis & Sara Lovelady in Santa Cruz, California. They wanted to “up the stakes” by instigating consequences for their actions. They also wanted to introduce and lure people into the live theater who don’t consider themselves “theater-goers.” So they came up with stripping improv.

The troupe encourages the audience to hang out in the lounge with them after the show to have some wine, beer and refreshments while often times groovin’ out to a live musical guest.

ScripTease is very proud of their benefit work for many causes such as the Second Harvest Food Bank, funding for brain tumor research, aid to numerous 9/11 charities, and fund raising to keep local small theaters running.

Over the years ScripTease has had many Teasers leave their laundry on stages all over Northern California. And now the Los Angeles Teasers are ready to scatter their scivies onto the stages of Southern California.

Come expose yourself to comedy!
