My wife & I are from Wales, UK & we stayed in San Francisco for 2 days and we found this show after looking for something different to do for an evening and this was absolutely amazing and couldn't have found anything better.

The performance was fantastic, very interactive and would without any doubt recommend seeing these guys perform.
They were also really nice people, had more than enough time for us after the show.

Thank you for the experience.

In San Fran for one night with my sister and looked up local improv and could NOT have had more fun. The performers were great, the service and bar amazing and there was an after show piano performance that topped the night off! I will definitely be back!

Went here with my girlfriend to try something different while in San Fran. We don’t typically do things like this so we didn’t know what to expect but left an open mind.

It was absolutely hysterical! The improv group was friendly, creative, and full of energy. We were laughing uncontrollably on many occasions. It is very interactive and I was impressed by all the different scenarios and games the group was able to perform in a hilarious way.

The best part of this is that you can go back every week and always get a different experience! Highly recommended!!!

Overall an amazing improv night. Checked this out with no kind of drama or improv history in my life. Originally wanted to see cheaper than therapy comedy night but ended up here and it was an amazing night
They really interacted well with the audience and overall knew exactly what they were doing. Going with the flow is what made it work so perfect. Definitely would go back !

I had never been to an improv show before, and we had a free (late) evening, so we decided to try it out! I'm so glad we did, we were hysterical nearly the whole show! The drinks at the bar were a little steep, but they made it worth your money. Go and have fun!

If you're looking for something different to do while in SFO, give this place a try. Fun evening. Not for children! Be prepared to laugh!

We found our tickets on Groupon and had low expectations. We ended up having a fabulous time and thought the comedians put forth a ton of effort and were really funny. It's a great alternative to the regular "go and just get drinks" date night. Come prepared to offer ideas to the comedians for sketches!

The actors are all very talented! The theatre was small and intimate.There was a lot of audience participation. It was a great way to spend an evening.

We have enjoyed seeing this talented group of improv performers at the Shelton Theater. It is so fun to have the audience suggest things and then have this talented group act them out on the spur of the moment.

They perform at a small, but good Shelton Theater that is in the Union Square area of San Francisco. As such, its easy to walk to it from many of the hotels in that area.

The Shelton Theater also puts on other fun plays and performances. Foodies the Musical is quite fun to see here. They have a web site with more details on what is happening at the Shelton Theater.

We have enjoyed going here and have gone several times.
