Sea Tea Improv
Sea Tea Improv officially burst onto the comedy scene on April Fool’s Day, 2009, and hasn’t sat down since. The troupe of fifteen players, professionally trained by Hartford Stage Company, ImprovBoston, and the Upright Citizens Brigade in New York, dazzles Hartford and beyond on a regular basis with their witty interpretations of audience suggestions. Sea Tea Improv performs short improvised games and long improvised plays at public and private functions, teaches classes to students of all ages, and trains professionals in the art of communication. They have performed all over Connecticut and New England.
In our shortform improv shows, Sea Tea Improv spins your weirdest and wildest thoughts into the kinds of scenes, games, and songs you’ve seen on Whose Line is it Anyway?, Wild n’ Out, and Drew Carey’s Improv-A-Ganza. Every Sea Tea Improv show is invented entirely on the spot, so no two shows are ever the same. Sea Tea packs the house monthly at City Steam Brewery’s Brew Ha Ha Comedy Club.
In our longform improv shows, Sea Tea Improv takes a single word or phrase from the audience and turns it into a play anywhere between twenty and ninety minutes. We created the romance-themed “Sex and the Sea Tea,” and are the current champs of the CT Comedy Cage Match, an annual 6-month-long longform improv competition series. Sea Tea Improv also hosts a monthly Longform Showcase, in which audiences see multiple teams performing various longform styles.
