What we're about

Improv Connection is a space curated to help you let loose, have fun, and laugh without limitation in a friendly, engaging, and high-energy environment! This improv meetup is perfect for the beginner - all the way up to the most advanced improv warriors - no experience is required.

Through a super playful process, we'll help you discover your inner improv roots (aka superhero powers)...and what you discover may (and most certainly will) surprise you!

At these meetups you will:

-Play a variety of easy-to-learn, engaging, and outrageously fun improv games.

-Find comfort and true freedom in expressing your weird side.

-Learn the foundational basics of improv and perform successful scenes (even if it's your first time).

-Connect and make new friends within the Austin community!

What kind of games do we play?We play short-form improv games designed to inspire collaboration and creative, out-of-the-box thinking and also dabble in a bit of improv scene work. If you've never done improv before, feel free to come see what we're all about!
