It's like Whose Line Is It Anyway, except there are no rules and the entire audience gets to participate.
It's a class where the grades don't matter and all the assignments are made up on the spot.
It's Open Improv, and it's a hell've lot more fun than whatever the hell else you were gonna do on a Tuesday.
Open Improv is one of the Sylvan's (VICELAND, Sketchfest, etc.) longest running shows. It started in a backyard with pizza and beer, and 8 years later we're running strong at our newest and best home, PianoFight. The first rule of Open Improv is %$#@ the rules, and the rest of the rules follow suit. It's a no-pressure- no-holds-barred comedy romp that proves the theory that anyone could be, and is, hilarious.
PianoFight’s not just a theater, it’s also a restaurant and bar!

If you plan on dining, we recommend you arrive 1.5 hours early so you have plenty of time to eat before the show. Restaurant seating is first come first serve. Drinks are always allowed in the theaters.
Street parking is free after 6pm. We’re located 2 blocks from Powell BART, numerous muni lines and there are 3 parking lots within 1 block.
