Best of Boston

2017 Best Comedy Club

Improv Asylum

Standup can be hit-or-miss, but the format is often predictable. That’s why this high-flying improv-and-sketch-comedy troupe feels so refreshing—not even the performers know where their next joke is coming from. Even better, Improv Asylum likes to mix up its formats, letting the audience pick the topics and even offering family-friendly afternoons.
