The ensemble cast at Whole World Improv Theatre has been entertaining Atlanta for more than 20 years, and now you can be a part of the hilarity with a an adult beverage from the bar and a general admission ticket to any show you wanna see. (And they’re all equally side splitting, trust us.)
It's been scientifically proven that increasing your weekly laughter will make you happier, decrease your cholesterol, increase your 401(k), and generally make you a better person. But don't start practicing those timeless yo momma/knock knock/jaywalking-chicken jokes just yet—this kind of medicine is best left to professionals like the ensemble cast at Whole World Improv Theatre. Setting the flagship improv theatre apart from all the others in the city is their character-driven comedy—lots of top-notch, hilarious impressions (some favorites include Matthew McConaughey, Marky-Mark Wahlberg, and all our favorite presidential hopefuls) and unique characters. These aren't just goofy yucksters shilling for your half-hearted chuckles, either. Each member of their main cast studies with the theatre for a couple of years before moving up to performing on the main stage, having nearly perfected the art of making you pee your pants from laughter.
Now you can be a part of the hilarity with an adult beverage from the bar and a general admission ticket to any show you wanna see. (And they’re all equally side splitting, trust us.) Thursday nights are a showcase of the newest up & coming talent coming out of the Whole World improv classes - they’ve been hand-picked and proven themselves as the top of the class, so you can check them out and say you knew them when... Friday and Saturday nights feature the award-winning mainstage cast, doing what they do best: getting ideas from the audience, and bringing the laughs. Saturday’s late night show is called The Max, and we’ve been told it’s Whole World on steroids - a beefy 60 minutes of fast, fun short form and games.
The theatre has a party vibe, complete with a cafe, beer and wine at the bar, good music, cultured folk all around and abnormally hilarious hosts. Get there early to ensure you can grab your drink and prime seating in the theatre before the show begins. And the party goes on after it's over; grab another beverage and chat it up with the cast members as they hang out after they're off the stage. Perhaps if you stand close enough to one of them, you may even absorb some of their comedic talent. But don’t count on it.
