This is a great activity for one evening. The show is fantastic and always different. The comedians perform improvisations based on the audience's suggestions. It is an intimate atmosphere too. You sit around small tables and can order cocktails and/or desserts. Everything I have ordered there was good.

Tried to go on Tuesday night and it was sold out but they take reservations so we were able to go Wednesday night. We arrived a few minutes after 7:30 for an 8:00 start. I would recommend going a few minutes early so you have time going to the restroom and getting a drink before the show starts. Drinks are... More

I can not say enough about the wonderful time my husband and I had at ImprovAcadia last Saturday evening. From the moment we walked in, to the moment we left, we felt that we just experienced something special. All four of the Improv cast members were terrific. They worked perfectly together and you could tell they were all having a... More

A wonderful comedic evening for couples, singles, or small group of friends. Seating is tight, so expect to sit at a table with strangers. The actors were funny and interacted with the audience without making fun of the audience as some comedians do. You should call ahead and make a reservation in the summer months as shows do sell out,... More

We highly recommend ImprovAcadia! The actors and actresses were awesome! We were constantly laughing, and Larry does it all, plays the music and helps get everyone seated. Zach did a great job serving people and Cass did a nice job behind the scenes in the bar and the kitchen. If you want to go to ImprovAcadia, go or call the... More

Nice surprise and a lot of fun. Inventive and quick-witted 5-person cast kept the laughs coming. Our recent visit was a sell-out night. Very understandable.

My wife and I visit Bar Harbor every year for the 4th of July, and always make sure to go to Improv Acadia. Over the years, I've lost track of how many times we've come... but it's most definitely not routine: The sketches are always terrific and fresh, and I always leave aching from laughing so hard. Last year my... More

Have never been to an improv performance before tonight but decided to try based on positive tripadvisor reviews. So happy we went!! Staff was very friendly. The show was so funny without being vulgar or insulting. I would absolutely recommend this!
