After a day of hiking we wanted to relax and be entertained. This improv show was good but not great. We did enjoy the show but I just cannot rave about it. 3 of the 4 actors were really very good....but 1 was not great. If they fine-tuned the group, it has great potential.

I am working in Acadia National Park for the summer, so I've been spending quite a bit of time in Bar Harbor when I'm not out hiking the trails. Last night a friend and I visited Improv Acadia for their early (8pm) show. They also have a later show, which I will have to attend sometime. The owner said the... More

With a 15 year old son and an 11 year old daughter it's hard to find something that everyone enjoys, but this show fit the bill! We all laughed pretty much the entire show. These actors know their craft and all 4 of them were funny and talented. My 11 year old would like to return this week - we... More

This show was captivating from beginning to end! The performers are incredibly funny and the 8 p.m. show was "family-friendly" just as advertised. I'm a bit of a prude with what i want my 7-year-old to hear, and I was very comfortable with him for the entire show. Also, the seating was intimate but the chairs were quite comfortable, and...

It was my husband's Birthday and my sister and her husband's Anniversary while we were staying in Bar Harbor so we decided to try ImprovAcadia. What a great show! We laughed a lot and really enjoyed ourselves. The cast was amazing, the venue is comfortable with snack and beverages...not too far from where we were staying...would definitely do it again!...

The cast of four plus their piano player had us laughing for hours. They were amazing and it was a great end to the day. Come ready to make suggestions and get involved in the show or just sit back and enjoy their funny banter based on audience suggestions. Highly recommend it!

I went with my husband and 9 year old son to the "family friendly" show at 8pm. My husband and I have been to Improv Asylum in Boston a bunch of times which we love, and I didn't expect Improv Acadia, especially a show that was family friendly, to be as funny. I was totally wrong and we all loved... More

This is a great show!! Eight of us had gone in June and we could not stop talking about the show. The cast was SOOO FUNNY!! Definitely do not miss going to this show if you are in Bar Harbor. Dessert was delicious and it was great to have a few drinks while watching this hilarious show!!!
