One Sunday per month One Friday per month One weekend per month
Our shortform improv show!

Similar to “Whose Line is it Anyway?”, we take tons of suggestions from the audience and use them (and a few audience volunteers here and there) in a variety of scenes, songs, and competitive games made up right on the spot!

Come see the show and have dinner, drinks & dessert while you watch — City Steam brews their own beers right on the premises.

This is our first and longest-running show — we’ve performed over 50 monthly shows at City Steam since 2009.

Our longform improv show!

We bring the big-city style improv of New York, Chicago, Boston & LA to life in Hartford!

We’ll take a single suggestion of a word, phrase, or title, get inspired by improvised stories from celebrity guests, or interview audience members to create a 25-40 minute improvised comedy with different scenes, themes & characters!

The showcase features Sea Tea Improv’s show AND other performances by invited groups & mixed improvisers from all over, for a big fun festival-style show!

In this newest addition to our monthly shows, we put on special one-time or experimental comedy shows that may not even be improv!

We’ve done improvised musicals, a special show for kids & families, a sketch comedy show with live music similar to SNL, a show where the improv groups swapped members, and a show with new one-off groups that were no bigger than 3 members each!

These shows are where we do something truly unique — don’t miss a once in a lifetime opportunity!

Enjoy City Steam's menu and locally brewed beers (and root beer!), or try Sea Tea Improv's own martini, the Sea Tea-ni, while the performers take suggestions from you, the audience, and weave them into impromptu scenes, characters, and games.

On Sunday, April 3rd the comedy club doors will open at 6pm for seating, food services and music by String Theorie. The free improv performance starts at 7pm. Because the event is always free, performances do sell out, so please call ahead to City Steam at 860-525-1600 to reserve your table.

If you haven't seen us in action, think Whose Line is it Anyway? meets Titanic. Yeah, we went there.


Everyone, no matter your experience level, please join us. We're here to make you look good.

Beginners, come test the waters! We'll give you everything you need to feel comfortable and have fun improvising. We think you'll love it (we sure do!).

Advanced improvisers, how would you like to open for Sea Tea Improv? If you've missed our Flying Blind I and II courses, but think you're ready for the big leagues, come show us what you've got! By participating in the Improv Experience workshop you might be invited to skip ahead to Flying Blind III: Improv Performance.
