Word spread. Within twelve months, we were playing in comedy clubs, bar basements, colleges, and comedy festivals multiple nights a month. On January 1st, 2012, our owner Tim Marks made the jump and founded The Kick Comedy Theater in Westport. We had established an improv theater. We started performing every Saturday — a prime-time show, and then a late show. Two shows turned to four, and four turned to five per week. Our audience had grown, and so had our company.
Now, in our sixth year at The Kick Comedy Theater, we currently employ over 35 professional actor/improvisers. We have trained with top-level pro’s from The Second City, UCB, and other national theaters. We have expanded from simple shows based on tried-and-true games and characters to challenging formats such as Improvised Shakespeare, Improvised Murder Mysteries, and original formats that we have invented.
