Favorite (And Funniest) Improv Troupe

Live Comedy. every week.

Let’s Jam!

Some say experience is the best teacher and when it comes to improv, we agree! Get some reps under your belt by joining an improv jam! MBI’s Improv Jam is an opportunity for students to connect, learn new games, and improve technique through repetition with the support of fellow improvisers and MBI troupe members. Jams are open to current and former students, and those who have taken a level-one improv class at other institutions.
