This is San Francisco
San Francisco has FOUR major players in the Improv Community
But who are they?
What are they like?
Here is a VERY GENERAL interpretation of what each company seems to be
Professional and Polished/Corporate
Young Crowd and High Energy/Hipster
Traditional and Community Minded/Therapeutic
Long Form and Themed Shows/Edgy
Every theatre has their strengths and weaknesses. All are amazing at what they do (hence why they are the major four).
I highly encourage improv goers to go to a show at each company and see what they jive with.
