We decided to go to this comedy show, with no expectations for the night...but we were BLOWN AWAY by the talent and laughs this comedy club provided! All three of the actors were hysterical! From a 27 year old to a 62 year old, we were all laughing our butts off! Our cheeks hurt from smiling! If you're looking for... More

We enjoyed this fast-paced, audience participation improv act. Always impressed at how improv actors can think on their feet and come up with such outlandish, yet hysterical story lines. The theater is small, so every seat is good. We attended the early "family" show, which was true to that (even when some audience suggestions could have led them to a... More

I was really pleasantly surprised to see an improv group in Bar Harbor. My family (which included a 15 year boy and a 13 year old girl) and I went to the early show, which is billed as "family friendly". To be honest, I wasn't worried about that but it was good to know that the show wouldn't go really... More

Looking for a fun activity after a day of hiking, biking, or lobsters? Improv Acadia was much fun! The cast was witty, funny, and takes suggestions from the audience to work it into their act. We went to the early family-friendly show. (Nothing objectionable inn the act at all) and my kids were thrilled to be part of the fun.... More

We went twice! Family show one night and adults only the other. Everyone is terrific and we laughed so hard. Jen is wonderful and so is Laurance. We love Improv Acadia ! If you like to laugh, you must visit when you are in Bar Harbor.

We've been to ImprovAcadia many times and it's always a joy. Each show is amazing and entertaining. If you're lucky and are in Bar Harbor during a weekend when the cast is doing Improvision, see that too! We just finished up a two-week vacation in Bar Harbor, and saw three shows. We almost went to a fourth. It's that much... More

We attended the 8pm kid friendly show and there were lots of children there. Some of them got to participate in the show and really enjoyed themselves. Food and drink was reasonably priced. We had a few beers as we had already eaten. Skits were very entertaining and completely improv ! Small room so all seats are good to see... More

The performers were truly funny and creative. This is such a treasure for Bar Harbor. My family enjoyed the 8pm show. Every single staff/cast member was friendly, professional, and courteous. I look forward to going again.

My sister and husband were in Acadia a few weeks before I visited and loved the Improv, so I went with my 21-year-old niece. Sure, it was the "adult" show that started at 10, but that's not really an excuse for the first half of the show, which was profoundly unfunny, unless you find people simulating oral sex or describing...

The Improv show was hilarious and still had my husband and I laughing about it the next day. If you are not afraid to laugh, then give this place a try. The venue is small but it makes it feel very intimate and that adds to the fun!!!
