Theme Park Improv (SOLD OUT)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Theme Park Improv Show's improvisers take a single suggestion of a theme from the audience, and wing an entire set of fast-paced long-form scenes and characters, based on stories from special guest monologist Paget Brewster ("Criminal Minds"). After a streak of sold-out shows, they return to SF Sketchfest with a stellar lineup: Rachel Dratch (“Saturday Night Live”), Michael Hitchcock ("Best in Show"), John Michael Higgins ("Pitch Perfect"), Thomas Lennon ("Reno 911!"), Jessica Makinson ("Halfway Home"), Oscar Nunez ("The Office") Cole Stratton (Pop My Culture podcast) and Janet Varney ("Burning Love"). This will be a show you won’t soon forget! $30
This show is SOLD OUT. Tickets may be available at the door night-of.
