Comic Science Improv is a North-Alabama based troupe of actors who perform hilarious sketches based on suggestions given by the audience. Our shows are appropriate for all audiences, and consist of a collection of short scenes in which we play improv "games" - anything from speaking only in questions to reinterpreting favorite movies — based on suggestions from the audience. You tell us what to do, we make it hilarious. If you’ve ever seen “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” “Thank God You’re Here” or “Trust Us With Your Life,” you have some idea of what we do, but our shows are made better by the fact that our scene suggestions are coming from YOU, and not some Hollywood studio audience!
