“Searching for a word to describe North Coast Improv. Wandering through excellent, outstanding, amazing, exquisite, delightful, wonderful, mesmerizing, whimsical, crafty, and justplaingoodwork. The word that sticks in my mind, as an Improviser of 34 years, is unique. Truly unique – one of a kind, not only as ensemble; unique in each performance, creating new standards for our wonderful art. Thank you.”

Robert saw two of our performances at this weekend’s Black Box Comedy Festival in Atlanta. We had a blast all weekend doing shows and workshops. Thanks, Robert!
