Meet the Improv Comedy Teams

Long Beach Improv Collective

The Long Beach Improv Collective is a Long Beach-based improv training center founded by Sonnjea Blackwell, graduate of The Second City Director’s Program.

Featuring Stacie Bauerle, Sonnjea Blackwell, Jo Donovan, Zeldie Eisenhart, Fernando Huerta and Lisa Limm.

False Restart

False Restart is a group of seven improvisers in the Los Angeles area who travel around and make things up in an attempt to entertain the masses. We host two monthly shows: Improv Against Humanity andSaturday Night Harold. Improv Against Humanity is a show based on the best-selling card game Cards Against Humanity where the improv teams play the game with the audience to create a suggestion for their set. Saturday Night Harold is a show featuring the best Indie Teams performing the Harold, a form created by Del Close at iO in Chicago and taught to the UCB four who brought it to NYC and eventually in LA.

Yellow Fever

Yellow Fever has quickly spread from its humble beginnings as the disobedient daughter of the indie show Catsby. This kickass group of Asian Am ladies will shock and startle you with their punchy performances and off-the-wall humor. Join these ladies for one wild ride! Coached by the dreamy Nick Mandernach. Catch us every second Sunday at the Clubhouse!

Discount Minotaur

As one of the house teams at The Improv Space in Westwood, CA, Discount Minotaur has been experimenting with various long-form improv formats on stage every Thursday night for almost two years. A simple suggestion from the audience is all they need to inspire a wild and fun-filled show.
