Our Mission

The Improv Space is dedicated to the performance, schooling, and advancement of improvisational comedy.

Our theatre has four main objectives:

  • to challenge the established structure of theatrical comedy by encouraging actors to find new ways of storytelling using different forms of performing art;
  • to teach the art of improv comedy through a workshop system that focuses on relationship, character development, storytelling and vulnerability;
  • to share our cultural development with the community of Los Angeles using outreach services such as free high school improv classes, local involvement in community functions and charity events that benefit local causes;
  • and to form a community for local actors to come together to create, inspire and risk in a safe and fun environment.

The Improv Space is a theater in Westwood, CA near UCLA. We feature improv comedy, and also include everything from stand-up comedy to live music to original plays.

The Improv Space is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
