We went with our teens (ages 16 and 13) some out of town guests and their teens (16 and 13) and had a blast. Hilarious performances as the cast had to jump through hoops to incorporate the crazy suggestions being thrown at them by the audience. The competition structure of the show kept things lively and the entire evening flew... More

Talented folks improvised on wacky suggestions from the audience. It was very funny -- and very clean and appropriate for all ages. What a great bargain and super entertainment. Can't recommend it highly enough.

I took my 19 year old son and 16 year old daughter and we had a great time. My 19 year son was 100% ready not to enjoy it because he was expecting to be surrounded by little kids and also believed that anything I recommend must be lame but he laughed a lot and was even called up on... More

In this age when teens are so sophisticated, it can be hard to find a NYC family activity that is fun AND mature enough to engage them AND that they can get into! This was perfect - I went with two teen boys aged 15 and they laughed a lot. After the show, they volunteered tha they would do it... More

I must admit that improv comedy really is not my thing but I enjoyed this show. It was 100% family appropriate but still fun for teens. Serviced minded, professional support staff. We really felt like they were happy to have us there. I was a bit concerned about walking to/from the location but it was fine. Performers were funny and... More

This truly is the "Second City" of our times....young artists honing their skills...and doing an excellent job. the price is modest compared to ANYTHING else you plan to do in New York...so you really must go and enjoy (and support) the emerging stars of tomorrow!

We took four teenagers--ages 17, 17, 16, and 13. They loved the show. It was actually their favorite part of the NYC trip. We did Broadway, bus tours, Central Park, etc. It's a small, very personal venue. Lots of fun. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

just went with my 14yo daughter. We both laughed the whole time. Clean and funny (both the humor, and the club itself). We'll definitely be back!

Been 3 times now in the past 4 years. Love NYC! And This has been a great hit with 3 girls 12 -19. The Improv teams are intelligent, quick on their feet, and funny. The show and games are different each time. We bring some of the fun home since one of my girls is a musical theater person. Played... More
