Daredevil Improv was founded in 2017 to create a lasting tradition of live spontaneous theatre and comedy in southeastern NC. Its focus is to teach others to use improvisation for creating vibrant, visceral, and contemporary arts and entertainment.

 

Improv as a performance really took hold in American comedy culture thanks to dedicated visionaries like Viola Spolin, Del Close, Keith Johnstone, and numerous others. In Chicago, upon the founding of The Second City, improv found its place as an avenue for satire, comedy, and artistic expression. All the while launching the careers of most of the household names in modern comedy. (Murray, Fey, Pohler, Meyers, Farley, Belushi, Key, Peele, Colbert, etc.)

And DareDevil Improv brings that spirit and knowledge down to the Port City for the first time!

 

Improv is not just a performance tool for actors and musicians, but for folks from all walks of life. In our classes, students learn not only the techniques and skills that make successful improvisers, but also the confidence and grace that make successful people.

     So sign up for classes!

     Be fearless!

     Be a DareDevil.

Lindsey was just a fresh face to Wilmington the day she walked by the "Dead Crow Comedy Room" and saw there was a Friendly-Friendly Improv Show going on. Her and her family stepped inside and before she knew it was signed up for classes, going through the entire program and becoming a member of a DareDevil House Team, as well as a performer on the "Ready Set GO!" show, the family-friendly show that started it all. After 2 years, she became the Director of RSG and she continues to grow and further develop her love & joy of Improv Comedy and the DareDevil Community!
