We love giving aspiring performers a chance at some stage time. You can get your free opportunity each week following the Home Team set.

The Ant Jam is a safe and inviting environment open to performers of all skill levels, so 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.

In its fourth run, the jubilee celebrating the exploits of America’s most beloved actor hopes to build on its previous successes at its new home, Planet Ant Hall.  The event, which has quickly sold out each year, combines a double feature of films starring Cage with a festival-like atmosphere featuring costumes, contests and the crowd favorite Nic Cage focused open mic. 

Past open mic performances have ranged from poems focused on Cage’s spending habits to full blown bands performing original Cage music.  The event is largely crowd centered and attendees are encouraged to yell their favorite lines. 

The 2017 edition includes a screening of Face/Off and City of Angels.  Drinks will be available from Ghostlight Bar all night long.

Improv changes lives!

Planet Ant offers classes in long form improv and sketch writing. Both programs are appropriate for students of all skill levels.

We bet you've been to an improv show at Planet Ant and thought, "They sure look like they are having fun. I wish I could do that." Guess what? You can! The Planet Ant Training Center offers a full line-up of six-week classes for beginning and experienced students looking to learn the ins and outs of long-form improv comedy and comedy writing.

You'll learn from some of the area’s best and most seasoned instructors –the same people you see performing with the Home Team each week. We pride ourselves on creating a safe and nurturing environment while providing frank, constructive feedback that will push students creatively to become better actors, better writers, and better improvisers.

We hope you are ready to sign up now, but maybe you  want try before you buy. Check out one of our free Taste of Improv Workshops for a sneak peak of what are classes are all about.
