Overview

Seattle's own improvised theater company since 1992! Every show at Jet City Improv is a blast of brand new scenes, games, songs and stories, all based on audience suggestions and crafted into Seattle's best comedy by our seasoned improvisers. Any given weekend features new unscripted plays in the Jet City Improv Presents series, an original comedy series known as JCI Late Night, our flagship Jet City Improv show, and the popular re-dubbed film events known as Twisted Flicks. No matter your mood, there's an audience-powered good time waiting for you at our bright yellow theater. So come grab some freshly-popped popcorn, order a drink at the bar inside the auditorium, and enjoy what we like to call A Higher Plane of Comedy.

Have been here probably 20 times over the past 3 years. Whether as a date night, with friends, or with family it has always been fantastically funny. No canned jokes, racism, crude humor, or swearing that ruin

We came for the Election Show and it was a really unique, fun experience. The long-form improv format and the structure of the show worked well and the performers were talented. I would recommend coming for a show.

Jet City Improv provided the perfect evening activity for our long weekend in Seattle with teenage kids. It was fun to be in the University area, and the Jet City talent provided a fun, funny, over-too-soon evening. We would definitely go again!

Hi 10sChick! I'm sorry the crowd at the show you attended was so vocal, and I'm sorry we couldn't showcase your suggestions. You probably had some pretty good ones, and I bet they would have made for some great scenes! As you pointed out, our...More
