Thank you for stopping by. We no longer have the theater. While I LOVED doing the improv and exploring life through improv performances, I did not love running a theater. Live and learn! I'm leaving the page up for anyone who wants to still grab photos from past performances or just reminisce. Mwa. - Kat

Louis CK - True Profound Happiness

By allowing yourself to be sad, to really FEEL your feelings, you get to feel real happiness, or as Louis CK says, you get flooded with "happiness antibodies. "

When we shy away from touching, embarrassing, quiet or sad moments in improv, I think we shortchange the scene. As improvisors, I believe we do our best work when we express ALL of the emotions, not just the funny, happy ones. There is no better laughter than the laughter that comes after tears.

How do you define success in improv? Is it getting laughs? Or is it something more?

Mike Birbiglia’s 6 Tips for Making It Small in Hollywood. Or Anywhere.

"The point is, forget the gatekeepers. As far as I’m concerned, what you create in a 30-seat, hole-in-the-wall improv theater in Phoenix can be far more meaningful than a mediocre sitcom being half-watched by seven million people."

OR maybe a 30-seat hole-in-the-wall improv theater in Miami!
