ImprovMANIA Improv Comedy Club is the best comedy show in Phoenix. We also teach improv comedy classes and are available for private parties, team building and corporate entertainment events.

NCT Phoenix

The National Comedy Theatre Phoenix’s competitive improv comedy show is a spontaneous and interactive comedy show and YOU (the audience) get to shout out suggestions, challenge the performers, and decide which team of comedians is the funniest!

Second Beat Improv Theater

Second Beat Improv Theater is rooted in the long-form format of improvisation. Our classes encourage students to trust their own choices both on and off the stage. We promote the idea of working as an ensemble through performance and class exercises to fully support everyone’s ideas. This belief is implemented through listening, saying yes to new ideas and reacting honestly.

The Torch Theatre

When The Torch Theatre began in 2007, we sought to help improvisors hone their craft and spread the word about longform improv in Phoenix, Arizona. It’s become so much more than that. It’s a community where our local musicians, actors, poets, dancers, comedians, writers and creative artists of all kinds can find a home to nurture their love of self-expression and collaboration. Individuals from all walks have found an openly supportive theater company to grow as people. Our performers and students have gone out and filled Phoenix with amazing performances, works and projects. We would love for The Torch Theatre to continue to be a strong voice in the choir making Phoenix a vibrant and creatively diverse community.
