blind date

Put on your best dress, spray on that cologne, and come on out for some laughs with Blind Date. We'll romance you with how second and third beats as you laugh at the chaos that happens on stage! All of our members have trained at Sea Tea Improv.


improvised history

Swashbuckling Sea Stories! Join the cast of Improvised History as we sail the high seas in search of fortune, notoriety, and revenge. We’re all about pirates, privateers, buccaneers, and other seafaring glory seekers ne’er-do-wells. The show will be inspired by historical texts and then the ensemble will weave an entirely improvised narrative of how we think things might have gone down.

tootin’ hand

twong & agnes

CLASSIC is an ode to stories. Vinny Francois and Kevin Pinkoski combine multiple narratives for a hilarious exposition of the absurdity that drives us all. Each tale is a patient, emotional, and detailed exploration of insanity and humanity. Prepare to watch seemingly normal people have their eclectic wants, needs, and desires revealed -- all for the comedy in storytelling!

the unmentionables (& friends)

The Unmentionables are Vermont's most seasoned long form improv team. This group of quick-witted improvisers has been performing for over 5 years throughout New England at bars, theaters, town halls, hotel conference rooms, crepe restaurants, bowling alleys, and even an abandoned Jazzercise studio. In November 2015 they became the MainStage long form improv troupe of Vermont Comedy Club, performing every Thursday night. The team has been featured at festivals in Hartford, Providence, San Diego, Montreal, and at the Del Close Marathon in NYC.



A late-night comedy show that's "Whose Line is it, Anyway" for grown ups! In this interactive, no-holds-barred comedy throwdown, our professional team of improv comedians will create spontaneous scenes (with a bit of help from some audience volunteers). It’s a Friday show that’s fearless and f*!@in’ funny. Mature audiences only! This one will get rowdy — and you won’t want to miss it!

Bird and Friends has been featured in festivals across the US and world including India, Canada, and the Philippines.
