More sketch comedy than improv. The jokes were great but some of the formats were lacking and their improv skills could be better, but overall an enjoyable show.

Its about 40% improv, 40% sketch comedy, and 20% singing. Instead of, you know, 100% improv.

While some of the comedy was very clever, I found the acoustics poor and it was difficult to follow the dialogue when the actors were turned away from me.

Great experience!! Small intimate crowd; lots of laughter. Parking a bit tough though; GPS couldn't locate parcel 7 so we parked on the street (meter) and walked 10 minutes or so...made us a little late but well worth the hassle.

From Our Editors

Not all live comedy is contained to Boston’s Theater District. Just ask the folks at Improv Asylum, located in an underground spot in the North End, where local actors perform different sketch and improvisational comedy shows nightly. The subterranean space on Hanover Street hosts 90-minute shows with up to six different actors in each show, performing skits that touch upon family humor, current events and even some adult topics (suggested minimum age for shows is 17 years due to the content). There are nine different shows held here each week, with a cast that interacts with the audience to ensure the authenticity of each show. Best of all, military and student discounts keep the already-low prices at rock-bottom levels.
