M.i.’s Westside Comedy Theater

Beyond a façade of black-painted bricks blasted by a bright-red sunburst, M.i.'s Westside Comedy Theater's laughter authorities train up-and-coming comedians in the art of forcing other people to laugh. The theater opened in 2009, 11 years after six comedians from the touring group Mission Improvable moved from Massachusetts to Chicago to continue training in the art of the extemporaneous. Now, 50 members strong, Mission Improvable helps students hone their comedic instincts during weekly classes, performances, and pie-throwing workshops. Instructors have imported a grounded, distinctly Chicagoan comedic sensibility to the West Coast, building improv courses on Viola Spolin's seminal, creativity-unlocking theater games and standup classes on students' own experiences and observations.

Reviews

I've taken a few improv classes there and I've really enjoyed them! The faculty is really knowledgable and clearly enjoy what they're teaching.

I took the Intro to Standup Comedy class here and it was really good. The instructor, Ed Galvez, was very professional and organized and also funny.
