Johnson Center - 1517

(Sketch) Cambridge, MA

Johnson Center, the forgotten capital of the Midwest, has suffered through yet another bizarre tragedy. It is up to a handful of brave citizens to sort through the wreckage and piece together what happened. Hopefully without destroying that crepe place on 3rd.-Oh man, that was a good crepe place.

Geoff Ross, a Harold performer since 2009 at ImprovBoston, weaves this simple tale through multiple character performances that somehow revolve around breakfast foods and, perhaps, significant death and destruction. He has taught improv comedy at ImprovBoston, performed improv and sketch across the country, and created the ongoing sketch film project Respectability Films, for any eyeballs which wish to see it.

American Girls On Tour - 1803

Toronto/Chicago, IL

American Girls On Tour is what happens when two best friends decide to quit their 9-5s and go on an adventure! Through multiple made-up scenes and characters, Adrianne and Erin tackle the highs and lows of humanity. With a balance of grounded honesty and offbeat edginess, the girls are fearless on stage and place complete trust in the journey that each is leading the other.

American Girls On Tour is the love child of two improv-soulmates. Fate brought Erin and Adrianne together on January 7, 2007 (the best day of their lives). Erin, an American, decided to move to Canada to study at the Second City in Toronto. Adrianne, perpetually late, decided to show up early on the first day of her improv class and quickly became Erin's first (and best) Canadian friend. The girls performed together whenever and wherever they could, until the fateful day when Erin's visa expired and she returned to her native land. But even borders could not keep these two apart and countless dollars and hours have been spent traveling back and forth, rehearsing and performing together. AGOT were most recently received at Spontaneous Combustion 5 in Atlanta, GA.

Bad Boys - 1539


Every Bad Boys show is a relentless pursuit of whatever the funniest thing is while not necessarily constrained by the stage space or any show format. Bad Boys attack every idea like it's the best one yet, and play in a way that is both fierce and highly intelligent, like velociraptors.

Bad Boys have garnered acclaim as one of the best improv ensembles working in Austin, playing to sold out houses across the city and inspiring audience reviews such as "everyone in the 'Bad Boys' troupe wears glasses. They were also hilarious," and "I mean, they're weird, sure, but it's funny." They also recently received their first nomination for a B. Iden Payne Award and the judges' prize from NYCs Iron Mule Short Comedy Screening Series for their video sketch, The Prostitute. They play weekly in Austin.
