Historically Funny, Hysterically Inaccurate.

Improvised History is a fully improvised comedy show focused on bringing to life the normal, everyday people you don't read about in textbooks. We start with the audience selecting a passage from a relevant text, and then hilarity ensues as the improvisers rewrite that chapter in history with their own (mis)interpretations. Most performances are in the Boston area, but the cast has been known to hitch up the wagons and explore new lands! We also do private events, which are great for making history fun and accessible! Be sure to get in touch if you would like to know where our manifest destiny takes us next.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • For what ages is your show appropriate?

    Our show is most appropriate for adults and teens. We don't try to be edgy, but we don't shy away from foul language. Also, our content may not be as entertaining to someone who has not yet taken a high-school level US History class yet.

  • What kind of history do you cover?

    We focus primarily on US history because that is most accessible to our audiences and cast, but we have previously ventured into Ancient Rome, the Renaissance, and the Golden Age of Piracy.

  • This sounds awesome, can I get involved?

    Sure! We're often looking for guest speakers to inspire our shows. Send us an email or a dm via the links at the bottom of the page.

    We also are open to meeting new cast members - at the moment, we are specifically looking for performers with a theatrical background who play strong characters, as well as folks from underrepresented groups. If either of those sounds like you, use the links at the bottom of the page to say hi!

  • Can I hire you for an event at my school/organization?

    Absolutely! If you provide us the venue and the audience, we're happy to perform for you for a fee. Send us an email if you want to discuss specifics.
