Women Be Shoppin' - 1640

Los Angeles, CA

WBS is a Team's Team (similar to a Man's Man, but with less gender issues). We have been described as "Funkin' Funny" because of the funk and hip hop twist our diverse team brings to the stage. We are quick, fun, unpredictable and always bring the class and Bootsy Swagger. We make each other laugh and bring the audience along for the ride.
In the immortal words of our namesake, that musician and philosopher, Bootsy Collins: "Well, you know, anything's possible. We gotta save something for a surprise." And we do.

WBS was formed in 2010 by graduates of The Second City, Hollywood. We consistently perform in theaters and headline showcases in Los Angeles. We have been official selections of Chicago, Seattle,and San Francisco Improv Fests, were runners up in the IO Del Close Harold Competition , and were the reigning champions of the notorious Thunderdome cage match at Second City for 6 months, thanks to our loyal following . We also host and headline a monthly show at iO, Los Angeles highlighting other improv teams in the community.
