Improv Colorado is an award-winning improv team in Colorado Springs, Colorado. (Awards pending). We specialize in short-form improvisational comedy, much like you’d see on TV’s “Whose Line is it Anyway?”
Performing at our new venue, The Cellar at The Carter Payne, 320 S. Weber St., Colorado Springs, CO 80903 shows and workshops monthly.
Improv comedy is an art. It relies on a little audience participation, a little improvisational technique, and a lot of stream-of-consciousness. Using these elements, the improvisers will make up the entire show on the spot. Literally, anything can, and does, happen. We strive to keep the humor clean, not just because it’s Colorado Springs, but because we think comedy shouldn’t rely on a string of expletives.
Improv Colorado members come from a diverse background–everything from political activists, to organic food experts, to Medieval Warriors Knights. But, the one thing they all have in common (besides being on the same team) is the desire to make people laugh. Our team has been trained by some of the best in the improv business. Some of our alumni now perform in Los Angeles and Chicago.
Everything you see will be based on audience suggestions, so the show is different every time you see it. Most of us could memorize scripts, but this is way more fun and less work. 43.6% of the fun of improv comedy is that you never know what to expect (which also accounts for 82.1% of the anxiety.) Paradoxical and intriguing…
Bottom line: We provide high-quality entertainment that you won’t soon forget. We strive to create an atmosphere where you feel like you’re hanging out in your living room with your “bestest” and “funniestest” friends. Only instead of a living room there’s a stage, and instead of your friends there’s us. Yup. That’s improv.
Humor is the great thing, the saving thing. The minute it crops up, all our irritations and resentments slip away and a sunny spirit takes their place. - Mark Twain
