Sunday nights feature a three hour show for only $5 - Sgt Culpeppers Improvisational Jamboree. For each of the first two hours, a different local improv troupe performs: the visiting troup and then the house troupe. Then, audience volunteers come out onto the stage for the final hour for an improv contest. The remaining audience votes.
This is a small theater, with a maximum of four rows of seating. The actors perform with a minimum of props on the floor.
The comedy is not suitable for children of all ages. You can't predict what the actors will say, and while they will make an effort if there are kids in the audience, prudish types should not apply.
You can arrive at 7, 7:45, or 8:30. However, it is rude to arrive in the middle of a performance.
The final hour offers 16 people the chance to participate. Signups begin at six thirty pm and are quickly filled up.
Contrary to its name, ImprovBoston is actually in Cambridge. Inman Square is an up-and-coming neighborhood with a great ethnic restaurant scene and the delicious Christina's ice-cream.
You can make online reservations here or check the schedule.
