We went to the 10 pm show on July 7th based on the Tripadvisor reviews. We had never been to a comedy show before and were not exactly sure what to expect. It was SO worth it - the comics were hilarious and we were laughing the entire time. The atmosphere was comfortable and the drinks were reasonably priced and... More

Such a great time. As many others said on here, sorry we did it our last night there. Would have gone back a second time. So much fun!

My husband and I saw the 8 o'clock show the closing night of the season, and had an amazing time. The performance was hilarious, with lots of crowd involvement, but no embarassing of the guests. We became the centerpiece of the last skit, and practically peed our pants with laughter

My husband and I laughed the entire time. I'm so glad we made advance reservations, as the event was sold out. I had been to Bar Harbor many times, but had never heard of ImprovAcadia until discovering it on Trip Advisor. Great for all ages, but kids younger than 8 might have trouble "getting" the jokes. The staff was very... More

I can only repeat what has already been said about this wonderful comedy show. Eveything is improvised on the spot so the comedians are really bright and spontaneous. It would be something different every night. They also do a great job getting the audience involved too. My eleven year old (usually shy) son volunteered to go on stage and be... More

Our family loved Improvacadia. We made reservations and they reserved front row seats almost on the stage. We experienced the 8pm family show with our 2 daughter ages 8 and 11 years old. They loved every minute! Come a bit early for light snacks, desserts and drinks around the small nightclub tables. The show lasted until 9:15. The actors asked... More

We saw the 8pm family show this past Thursday (8/20).....loved, loved, loved it! My kids and I and the entire audience couldn't stop laughing. The group of actors are so funny, clever and talented. I am so happy we saw the show. Do not pass this one up!

My wife and I have vacationed in Bar Harbor for the past 18 years and this year we discovered ImprovAcadia. Being a retired, older (65) couple, we were not sure what ImprovAcadia is and if it would be for us. Well we tried it and are we glad we did! It is absolutely laugh-out-loud funny... lots of belly laughs. The... More
