Since 2002, New York Improv Theater has delivered much needed laughs in a fun, safe and creative space for professional talent, students, guests and clients. Our #1 rule is to HAVE FUN but never at another’s expense. Our mission is to entertain and educate, bringing Improv to those that need that laughs most through outreach programming, using Improv to develop strong teams and leadership through our corporate and community partners, and to help make the world a better place, one laugh at a time!

Our Signature Show, Saturday 3pm Off Broadway, Times Square NYC.

New York Improv Theater presents an interactive musical comedy show, with skits and songs improvised based on audience suggestions and participation. The all paid professional cast plays weekly in Times Square NYC, hosts private groups at our Manhattan theater and tours theaters, clubs, schools and events including 7000+ audiences nationwide since 2002. This show is comparable to a PG13 comedy (smart adult humor, wo the raunchy content, but edgy, fast paced energy), and considered corporate, college campus and even, for most, family friendly. Tickets $25. No additional purchase required. Food and beverage served. Close to Times Square and Columbus circle trains, we are just one block from the Colbert stage door. Parking garage across street, but weekends and evenings one usually finds spots on the street.


Sunday Afternoons Times Square NYC

Our newest series features a rotating line up of Improv, Stand Up and Musical guests. $10-25 at the door, get tickets here for just $5 and reserve your seat. 10/30 College Humor (18+ only version of our Signature Show that tours corporate events and college campus activities), 11/6 Indy Team showcase, 11/13 Indy teams and Stand Up Comedy, 11/20 THE HAROLD showcase, 11/27 THE DATING GAME immersive experience.


Want to Perform?

We are first a professional troupe of actors, so to get into the signature show that pays for every performance in Times Square and touring theaters, schools, and corporate/private events, we have an audition process. EMAIL is your headshots and resume. For Corporate Team Building we only use our top experienced talent. Looking for stage time for your Indy team, email us a promo photo, bio and brief cover letter of your goals at our theater.
