Never Miss Out!


Improv Jams

WNY's first and longest-running Improv Jam -

Now in our 6th year!

No experience necessary – just a desire to have fun!

Improv Jams are simply a gathering of people who love to play; we call them “play dates for grown-ups.”  Every week we'll practice something fun and different, from learning new improvisational games (like you see on Whose Line Is It, Anyway?) to playing circle warm-up games to exploring long-form scene work.  Jams are perfect not only for those interested in improv, but also for:


  • Honing acting skills
  • Increasing your confidence
  • Sharpening public speaking skills
  • Getting out of the house and enjoying yourself


While prior theater or improv experience is helpful, whether you're a newbie or a pro, there's something in every Defiant Monkey Improv Jam for you. It's all about having fun!


Cost for a drop-in Improv Jam is $5 per session.


Note: Due to the free-form nature of our Improv Jams, we recommend them for ages 16 and older.
