After seeing the success of the InterCity Long Form Improv Jam, we looked into the wants and needs of our improvisers, specifically the want to play now and the need to play more. Giving credit to Jasmine Kojouri (“We need more reps!”) and Elyse Iovino (“We want to drink mimosas while we play!”), InterCity came up with the premise of a jam to satisfy both: have improvisers play in subsequent improv sets, and play them frequently… also to have a jam time friendly to improvisers residing in both sides of the Prime Meridian.

Things To Expect:
  • Three rounds of long form improv, 12-17 minutes each.
  • Sets are performed in breakout groups of 3 to 4 people with no audience; you get to play for yourselves and for each other!
  • No waiting for your turn to play; you play in every single round. That’s 42 to 51 minutes of continual improv!
  • Subsequent rounds get an additional rule or theme to make sets more interesting, using the WHEEL OF NAMES (o…O)
