Improvilicious The Improvised Guide to Spooky Stories

The biggest scaredy cats in improvised comedy turn your scary suggestions into a spook-tacular show with guaranteed goosebumps and giggles.

Like witches chucking newt eyes and bat wings into a cauldron, our improvisers combine audience participation, theatre games and everything you expect to see and hear in a horror story or living nightmare. Ghosts. Unexplained lights. Noises in the dark. Emo schoolkids who are really vampires.

In every show, two performers create an epic story of the supernatural on the spot. A mad scientist or wizard-gone-bad will recruit an assistant from the audience. Many horrifying jokes and puns will be uttered. People will laugh their heads off. Literally. And because it’s improvised, every show will feature a new and unique ghoulish story for kids, Frankenteens and mummies (and dads too).

Improvilicious has been delivering impro-larious shows for kids, teenagers and families since 2014, including the improvised guides to Video Games, Superheroes, Best Friends, The Internet, High School and the History of Theatre.
