Multiple Personality Disorder

MPD's unpredictable shows are always packed with laughs from start to finish!

MPD performs improv comedy sketches like those seen on the popular television show, “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” and uses audience input to shape the scenes that the actors instantly create onstage.  Performers use ingredients such as everyday objects, strange maladies, and unusual circumstances to cook up unconventional mini-plays that appear and disappear before your eyes.

Rocket Improv’s advanced teen improv students alongside Montclair Improv Comedy members Michele Laikowski, Luke Ward, Lulu French, and Brad Barton will be performing short-form improv games that rely on audience suggestions to inspire quirky characters and madcap scenarios — what we in the biz refer to as “the funny make ‘em ups.”  Come out and support these talented, local improvisers as they create completely improvised scenes that have never been seen before and will never be seen again.

All events are free to the public. Seating limited.

What do you get when you combine a therapist, a corrections officer, a scientist, a graphic designer, and a commercial specialist? Sounds like a Mighty Hoax to me! This troupe might be new, but they are not afraid to get weird. And of course, conjure up a few laughs along the way. When you combine Mehdi Doumi, Jonny Fido, Justin Kemps, Tim Lowe, and Eric Shepperd; you are guaranteed to see something truly unique. You are guaranteed a Mighty Hoax!

Jersey 'Prov II - This Time It's Personal

ONE night of Improv. TWO great shows! Brought to you by Suburban Legend and Rocket Improv!

jerseyprov2.brownpapertickets.com

7:00 - 8:00

Tickets are $10. Family friendly.

Second Show: MISSION CONTROL with opening act MIGHTY HOAX

8:30 - 10:00

Tickets are $15. May contain adult language and situations.

OR you can get tickets for both shows at the special price of only $20!

Teenage FBI is New Jersey’'s ONLY all teen improv troupe. Which may or may not be true. But probably is. The fact is these young humans ROCK! They’ll prove it to you by performing some musical improv tonight. Yup, you heard that right. They’ll make stuff up that goes beyond just thinking up lines and will be creating lyrics and freakin’ music on the spot! Full disclosure… their autographs are really the only things they’ve rehearsed.

Mission Control consists of a mix of some of New Jersey’s hottest improvisers from improv institutions such as IO Chicago, The Peoples Improv Theater, Second City, and Gotham City Improv. This is a rare opportunity to see veteran improvisers create on-the-spot theater in your own backyard! Cast consists of Rocket Improv instructors Lulu French (Gotham City Improv), Abby Sher (Second City), Dave Maulbeck (the Magnet), Angela Dohrmann (the Peoples Improv Theater), and Brad Barton (Gotham City Improv) with guests Bob Kulhan (IO Chicago) and Kimberley Hellem (IO Chicago). This show may not be family friendly. It depends on your family.

Jersey 'Prov

A Night of Improv at the Burgdorff for Comedy Awareness Month!

Buying tickets in advance is highly recommended! Purchase tickets at: https://jerseyprov.brownpapertickets.com

Teenage FBI: New Jersey's ONLY teen improv troupe. That may or may not be true but it sounds good. They will perform long and short-form improv.

Whatever, Dad: Improv troupe seeks audience for warm short-term relationship. Enjoys walks on stage, occasional family dysfunction and being laughed at. Reply in confidence to box office. 

Mission Control: You've seen them at Upright Citizen's Brigade, The People's Improv Theater, Second City, Gotham City Improv and now the Burgdorff. This is a rare opportunity to see veteran improvisers create on-the-spot theater in your own back yard!
