The Ant Jam is a safe and inviting environment open to performers of all skill levels. Even if you have never improvised before you can feel comfortable playing in our Jam. Interested participants just need to put their name into the Jam Jar for a chance to play some improv games and do some long-form.

The Ant Jam is completely free, but we suggest arriving at 8pm for our Improv Monday show! At $5, it's the best entertainment deal in town.
