Improv School of Atlanta
“Improv School of Atlanta is a safe and encouraging place for anyone to learn the art of improv comedy. Our classes are challenging, fun, and highly effective at making you a more engaging artist and communicator. We offer a unique approach to teaching the art of improv comedy unlike any other program in Atlanta.”

“Shenanigans is a Lee University improv group from Cleveland, TN performing 1/2 short form and 1/2 long form.”

Obv Prov
“We are a group of six improvisers that hail from Cleveland, TN, the jewel of Central Bradley County. Led by professor of theatre at Lee University, Dan Buck, whose research interests include Improv Pedagogy and who has performed with Sak Comedy Lab of Orlando, FL. He also founded the college improv teams of Taylor University and Gordon College. The rest of the team is a rag-tag group of Lee University grads and former members of the student team Shenanigans. Obv-prov is a show designed for the Gatlinburg festival that begins with a wild brainstorming session of movie pitches and then leads to a long form jam that consistently culminates in a transcendent narrative crescendo which has added positive energy to the universe and saved a few whales, indirectly.”

Einstein Simplified
“Einstein Simplified has been entertaining Knoxville, TN and the surrounding area since 1994. Over 18 years and 900 plus shows of comedy improv. The troupe is currently performing at 8:00 p.m. every Tuesday at The Well.”

Reasonably Priced Babies
