Fools Play believes that funny comes from within. Therefore, they don’t copy what other improv troupes are doing. Instead, they spend their practices exploring and inventing new ideas for improvised stories, characters and music — as well as show formats in which to present these discoveries. With a catalog of original improvised concepts that numbers in the hundreds, you haven’t seen anything like Fools Play.
Above all else, every performance of Fools Play features the cast doing what they love: Being funny. For more than 20 years, the group has been providing improvised comedy to the South Sound area. They perform a variety of improv comedy styles including audience-participation games; line games; musical improv; short-form scenes; long-form scenes; formatted shows; inter-show story arcs and more. Aside from a few games that no improv troupe could live without, all of the material is unique and constantly changing.
