Baltimore Improv Group

Bringing Free Laughs to Baltimore 7 Nights a Week

We Are BIG

The Baltimore Improv Group (BIG)'s mission is simple: to advance the art and appreciation of comedy improv in the Baltimore region through enthusiastic participation and education.  Since our founding, BIG has continued to enhance the quality of, expand participation in, and foster the appreciation for improv throughout Baltimore.

As BIG continues to grow, we envision awareness of, participation in and passion for improv comedy to continue spreading throughout the Baltimore region; we similarly envision improv’s infectious culture of support to spread throughout the greater Baltimore area, inspiring community and creativity among all.


The Baltimore Improv Group has a number of house teams and specialty shows. With these, we are able to bring you live, free improv comedy 7 nights a week!


Your attendance helps push the bounds of what community theater and improv can be. 


Even when you can’t make it to a show, there is no reason to miss out on improvised laughs for your company or school. Hire BIG for corporate training, educational workshops, and private comedy shows.

​With our flexibility and experience, we can shape an event for your organizations and your groups of any size. We can even help you applying improv principles to your workplace: BIG has you covered.


"It will change your life!” That’s what we hear most often about taking improv classes. You’ll work with the best improvisers in Baltimore. You'll learn to create original, honest, and funny scenes & ideas through games, exercises and performances.

We offer classes for all levels. If you're a beginner or need an advanced, specialized program, age is truly just a number!
