Improv On Our Own

a.k.a. "Homemade Improv"

The improv jam is currently on indefinite hold


Weekly Improv Jams in San Francisco. We have four basic formats:
  • Micetro (most common format these days)
    (learn more about how we do micetro)
  • Teacher nights
  • Long-form experiments
  • Short improv games (unmoderated)
    (We are moving away from this format)


We are a loose group of people, some with lots of improv experience, some with a little bit of experience, and some who are totally new.

Improv On Our Own is intended to be a fully inclusive event.

The group is (currently) semi-moderated and hosted by Dave Madison

Back in 2004 a group of BATS students decided they wanted to keep playing improv games for practice and fun. They started meeting at people's houses and informally called the group "Improv On Our Own". Since then we've had many generations of improv members, but the group lives on!
