Quotes & Highlights

Big City Improv is a long-running hit on Goldstar. Check out member reviews for 2005-2011.
“When it comes to talented improvisational comedy troupes, it’s hard to top the guys and gals of Big City Improv. The award-winning ten-person crew can freestyle on the fly like a rapper, free-associate like a psychologist, and riff on a topic like a bebop saxophonist. A perennial Bay Area favorite, Big City Improv’s comics have been incorporating audience participation into their live shtick since 2001… for a laugh-inducing riot that promises to be both unscripted and unlimited, as far as how funny it can be.” —East Bay Express
