Longform Improvisation is based on ideas and philosophies developed by actor/director/writer/teacher Del Close. Close essentially invented long-form improvisation as we know it. Similar to the short-form improv you've seen on "Whose Line Is It Anyway?", longform improv relies on one audience suggestion, and nothing else, to create instant comedy via a completely improvised comedy show.

This event is hosted by The Cabal, and features The Rare Bird Show, and LunchLady Doris. Each group performs in and around the Philadelphia area. In addition to Philadelphia, these groups have performed at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York, Los Angeles, New Jersey, and Pittsburgh. Credits include appearances on television, film, radio, and on the web. The 2004 Philadelphia Fringe Festival ( was home to all three groups at such diverse venues as Pierre's Costumes, O'Neals Pub and The Philadelphia Ethical Society.

This is an opportunity for audiences to experience highly-skilled longform improv here in Philadelphia - New York quality with a local commute. This event features local talent, further advancing the Philadelphia improv community!

Watch the freshest faces in the area turn your suggestion into a montage of hilarious scenes that connect in the most surprising ways.
