Defiant Monkey Improv Jam

Improv Jams are simply a gathering of people who love to play, like “play dates for grown-ups.” Every week we’ll practice something fun and different, from learning new improvisational games (like you see on Whose Line Is It, Anyway?) to playing circle warm-up games to exploring long-form scene work. Drop-in cost is $5 per session.

Defiant Monkey "Masters of Improv" Show @ Taylor Theater

Using suggestions and volunteers from the audience, we create on-the-spot theatre you’ve never seen before, and will never see again! Each show is unique; our live audience members are the only ones who will ever see that particular show. It’s like fireworks – you can tell someone how awesome they were, but the magic is in experiencing it for yourself! $10.
