Coronavirus Update

“Laughter is the best medicine” was a saying the late Dr. Mark Anderson told staff members in the early days. Dr. Anderson started the Improv franchise more than 30 years ago by working with Founder Budd Friedman to open Improv locations across the country. After a frustrating career in psychology, he turned to comedy and felt he could do more for the mental well-being of people by bringing them a regular dose of laughter. We are pleased we can bring that dose of laughter to customers who feel comfortable going out.

We are asking all our patrons to wear a mask when they are not eating or drinking. Staff members will also wear masks. If you don’t have a mask, one will be provided to you upon entering. Customers who refuse to wear a mask will not be allowed to enter. Our facilities are cleaned and sanitized between shows. Additionally, commonly touched surfaces such as doors are regularly and frequently cleaned and disinfected. Disposable menus are utilized. In addition to these practices, we’re asking our customers to stagger their exit after shows and we appreciate our guests allowing us to take their temperature before entering the showroom. Seating is generally at a table with only your group. Both preferred and GA tables are single party seating. Some locations have the option for shared tables. If your location has shared tables, those are clearly marked before purchase.

As it states on the CDC website that “keeping distance from others is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick”. A list of those individuals can be found on the CDC website – link included here:


With this in mind, we ask higher risk individuals or those living with those individuals to not attend our shows at this time. We hope to welcome you soon.

We hope that your family and friends remain healthy and safe during this time. Our thoughts, love and support are with all those impacted by this pandemic. The ownership and employees of the Improv thank you for your patronage and we look forward to seeing you soon.
