  • Endgames Improv
    Improv comedy isn't just about making audiences laugh. It's also a great way for performers to sharpen their wits and reaction time, as well as to overcome public-speaking anxiety. That's why the instructors at Endgames Improv offer so many classes and workshops, helping novices improve everything from group dynamics to scene work to sketch writing. But Endgames Improv's bread and butter is really its jam-packed schedule of comedy shows. Read on to learn about a few of them: "SF Tonight": During this weekly show, comedians skewer San Francisco's local news stories, using real headlines as their inspiration. "#ThrowbackThursday": Audience members submit their old photos to Chivalry Club, a long-form improv team, who uses those sometimes-embarrassing pics as the basis for their weekly show. "Inside Baseball": This variety show is kind of like a comedy smorgasbord, combining the best of local sketch, standup, and improv into one must-see event.
