American Improv Theatre Players: Spontaneous Comedy, Instant Laughs

Buy Tickets $7.50 $15

Improv is comedy without a net, where daredevil performers depend not only on the audience for suggestions, but also on their fellow performers for support and Lady Luck for inspiration. Done right, it’s not just hilarious — it’s astonishing. The American Improv Theatre (AIT) Players do it right. Come laugh and marvel as the Players spin entire scenes from suggestions. The show begins with some silly, quick-moving improv games (Think Whose Line Is It Anyway?). Then the Players raise the stakes with longer, more connected scenes so good they seem scripted. But they’re not: Everything that happens at Black Cat Licorice Theater is discovered in the moment.

American Me Comedy: Stand-Up About Living in America

Buy Tickets COMP $15

American Me Comedy debuted on November 24 2009 with its initial performance at the Improv in San Jose, California. An altruistic comedic mission fueled by playing the race card as the joker in the deck inspired the show’s creator, Jason Rogers. Jason’s uniquely American upbringing as an adopted Korean kid in Mr. Roger’s white picket fence neighborhood gave him a distinctive “slant” on life, now put to hilarious use in his stand-up routines. The self-proclaimed “Caucasian Asian” put it this way, “I created the show to incorporate all kinds of comedians. I wanted to stay away from an all Asian, white, black, purple, blue themed show.”
