    As a NY improviser visiting for the comedy festival I can say that this theater is nicer than any improv theater in NYC.

    Check out Harold Night if you like the spontaneity of improv but want something a bit more substantial than games that last a few minutes.

    Competitive improv? Curious. Check out Casey's Favecast of the comedy club here:

    Probably you should go see The Kerfuffle, 2nd Wednesdays at 10pm. I'm not at all saying that because I host it. Not at all.

  • The Feast

    Improv Boston hosts everything from naked comedy nights (the first Wednesday of the month) to queer comedy night. Go on Sundays if you want pure stand-up. Read more

    The earlier show is usually not as funny as the later ones (I think the performers tone it down a bit because the crowd is usually a bit younger.) The later shows always have more laughs!

    Melissa B. · October 24, 2010
  • Chris T.

    Good place with NO werewolves.
