I am writing to recommend to you the IMPROV4KIDS comedy troupe for school performances. I have been teaching for over thirty years and have seen hundreds of assembly programs. This group of family-friendly comedians performs regularly at the Times Square Performing Arts Center (formerly The Laugh Factory) and offers an improv experience unlike any I’ve seen.


The audience members, both children and adults, are completely engaged in the slap-happy hysteria offered by these innovative actors. Their various skits and games are performed using many volunteers from the crowd, and truly allow the participants to discover their inner most comedic talents. The show is a laugh ‘til you cry experience.


This performance encourages children to explore their creativity and to use their vivid imaginations to the extreme!  During the course of the show, the audience members may hear an interview with an author of a new book, or witness pictures from an historic event such as Washington crossing the Delaware.


The latest performance I’ve seen was something new and different for IMPROV4KIDS; a scripted performance of “Shout It Out, NO!” which was an anti-drug, alcohol and cigarette show, written by one of the cast and performed by four members of the troupe. The entire school population, grades K-5 thoroughly enjoyed the songs, skits and stories performed that day, and actively participated through song and audience participation.


I am delighted to have seen this group’s work and I recommend them to you without reservation.
