ZANY. CLEVER. STUPID. BRILLIANT

Many words are used to describe improvisational comedy. Improv is all these things!

We make it all up in real time. Sometimes absurd, sometimes insightful, always intriguing and very likely to make you laugh, IMPROV has something for everyone.

We can entertain your party, your office group, your business association, all the people at your charity event.

Much like the classic show Whose Line is it Anyway? the Old Dancehall Players can make funny happen anytime, under almost any circumstances.

Need something wildly creative? Our team can do it!
