Jet City Improv Reviews
Have been here probably 20 times over the past 3 years. Whether as a date night, with friends, or with family it has always been fantastically funny. No canned jokes, racism, crude humor, or swearing ... more »
This was something different and quite entertaining. I loved the interactive ascpect and the venue was so intimate. I loved the improvise because they expanded themselves and displayed such quick wit. more »
Just started performing improv and this was my first time ever at Jet City! Just got home and my mouth is off the floor.This cast is unbelievably funny. I can't believe this wasn't scripted. This much energy at a 7:30 show?! I left feeling like it was the first time I heard the Beatles. Excellent job to the cast and crew. It's inspiring!
Really solid given that Seattle isn't known as an improv powerhouse. Very community-oriented and family-friendly.
