Improv in Pittsburgh

It’s been quite a year for improv comedy in Pittsburgh: Friday Night Improvs has just completed its twenty-first season of audience-participation shows, established comedy troupe Hustlebot won the Steeltown Entertainment Project’s FILM FACTORY with their short film, “Roll the Dice,” and Kasey Daley and Justin Zell opened the Steel City Improv Theater on Pittsburgh’s North Side.

Performers from these and other groups, such as Irony City and The Cellar Dwellers, come together each week to mix it up at the Pittsburgh Improv Jam.

And while the Improv Jam showcases veteran improvisers in the featured sets, less experienced performers and those interested in giving it a shot are encouraged to come down and sign up for the open set at the end of the show!

Pittsburgh Improv All*Stars

These same performers put up an even showier show on the last Saturday of each month, under the banner of the Pittsburgh Improv All*Stars! More information on this is available upon request, or simply visit the website below.
