The agents of MISSION IMPROVable Comedy Team are just a few audience suggestions away from creating a brand new and original production that’s all about whatever you tell them!
This fast-paced and exciting new form of comedy is a combination of MTV’s
“Wild ‘N Out” and “Who’s Line is it Anyway?” – but there is a bit of a twist. Just like in the old TV series
“Mission Impossible,” the Chicagoan actors in Mission IMPROVable pretend to be agents.
The audience members are the co-agents and participate in the hilarious theater games or “missions”
by yelling out suggestions. The on-the-spot randomness provided by the audience makes each mission
truly unique and very often hysterical. This new improvisational comedy troupe,
Mission IMPROVable, is infectious and hot. MI is a regular at festivals and colleges across the
country with a show that will leave you with a smile on your face and your stomach aching from laughter.
So, you want to try being an agent, huh? You’re not alone. Often people get so
involved with the show that they want to try improv themselves. For that reason,
MISSION IMPROVable Comedy Team has created IMPROV BOOTCAMP, a series of on-site
improvisational comedy workshops. We offer several classes that cater to all comedic levels from the first time stage freshman to the seasoned senior comic! We make sure that everyone has fun!!!
“I wanted to drop you a note to tell you how great a job the group of Mission Improvable did at our After Prom Party. Gosh, we laughed so hard, and they got the students involved all the time. What a great suggestion from you to check them out for our Party. We will definitely keep them in our address file for future engagements. So, if you rate them for their performance, please give them a 10+ with 10 being the highest. They even took time to play a game or two of dodge ball.” - Bridgewater-Emery After Prom Committee
“It seemed like the crowd really enjoyed the show, and I know the students in the Odd Request improv group were really happy that they got to open for you guys and meet you all before the show. You all were great to work with, which made the show an even better experience.” - Jared R. Eakins, University of Illinois
“Mission IMPROVable was fantastic! They are a great, fun, courteous group of men. Everyone loved the show! - Diane Coon, Lasell College
“The MI guys were great and the students loved them!!!” - Holly Nonnemacher M.Ed., Moravian College
“We loved Mission Improvable! I had high hopes for the act but they guys exceeded all of them. I think the school will definitely be asking for their services again in the future. I’m sure we will be in touch soon for more fall events. Thanks again. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you guys.” - Taylor Donze, Spring Hill College
“In 2006, Mission Improvable took on Lollapalooza’s Mindfield. They carried the day with a constant stream of hyjinx. Watching them get into it with the audience was comedic surgery; purely side-splitting… It was our best Mindfield ever!” - Perry Farrell, Lollapalooza
“I thought I’d beat you to the punch and send you a message about Mission Improvable and A Shot of Reality. Both shows were outstanding! Using MI to hook the students into coming to A Shot of Reality was great too. Our drug and alcohol person was very impressed and was even introduced during the show! - Mike Keegan, South Dakota School of Mines and Technology
“I just wanted to thank you again for all your help in booking Mission IMPROVable for Stage Revue this year. They were an amazing group to work with and a perfect fit for Stage Revue!! They brought a whole new atmosphere
to our event and the audience absolutely loved them! Thank you for helping to direct me to this group for Stage Revue.” - Hilary Cadeau, Michigan Technological University
“Yes!- Mission IMPROVable was FANTASTIC! I missed most of their show (as I was running around doing other things) but what I did see was great! Our vendor who sponsored them was thrilled, and all the managers attending conference thought it was one of the best evening events of conference! We would love to have them back sometime!” - Carolyn Sutphen, Event Coordinator
“You could say that our Mission IMPROVable show was COMICAL, But that doesn’t even begin to describe this talented group of individuals. Mission IMPROVable does not rehearse or have any script. They are a professional IMRPOV(able) group that loves hearing laughter come from their audience. They are hilarious, polite, and wonderful to work with. They can turn anything into something funny.” - Brandon Carpenter, Illinois Central College
“Not only did things go well, they set the tone for the rest of the conference. They were fantastic. I appreciated their ability to quickly involve the audience and how clean their humor was. More than one of my colleagues from other schools commented on the fact that they didn’t need to go blue to get the audience to laugh. There was discussion at the membership meeting the next day that encouraged members to book from the agencies involved. Mission IMPROVable and your agency’s name were at the forefront of that discussion.” - David Paeth, Southwestern Illinois College
