My husband and I enjoyed a show at ImprovAcadia. They were a talented group to keep the audience laughing and involved. We were nervous to sit up front, but were assured that we wouldn't be picked on. It was an amusing, unique show. We were lucky to meet and hangout with some of the cast after the show.

ImprovAcadia is a not-to-be-missed attraction in Bar Harbor. Whether your visit is after a hike in Acadia, after dinner in Bar Harbor or just because you like great improv comedy, you owe it to yourself to go to ImprovAcadia. We've been going for years with children and adults; in fact with just about everyone except our dogs and all have... More

So funny, and they don't pick on you as an audience member--you can just sit back and laugh! Great prices, super nice people, we make this a regular stop when we're in BH!

The performers were absolutely outstanding. We had so much fun at the 8 o'clock show that we went to the 10 o'clock as well. We didn't stop laughing the entire time. I've never seen performers so quick witted, versatile and talented! If you go to Bar Harbor and don't check out their show, you've missed a diamond.

Excellent way to end a great day! Went to the 10pm show which is more "Adult" content. Very reasonably priced admission fee and good drinks. The 4 improve comedians were fantastic! Very entertaining and interactive. Highly recommend seeing the act!

The quaint second floor theater that this EXTREMELY talented improv groups performances are housed in matches the good vibes that they clearly portray. The variety of skits they took part in really kept the fast pace of the evening seemless and transitions were excellent. All players interacted with one another and their audience so professionally and Im typically a pretty... More

Great show for such a reasonable price! 4 performers did a great job improvising using ideas shouted out by the audience. Lasted about 1 1/2 hours. They serve food and drinks. We would definitely do this again!

My wife and I are frequent event goers. ImprovAcadia is exceptional! I'm glad we discovered it. Who would ever think that you could find top-notch comedy in Bar Harbor, Maine? But you can, and we did. The price is right, the comics are brilliant. This is a guaranteed fun night. Dio yourself a favor and give it a try.
