Who is Front Porch Improv?

Front Porch Improv puts on stellar improv comedy shows in Savannah, GA with a cast of talented performers. We teach business workshops, comedy classes, perform private shows, and proudly produce Savannah Comedy Fest and Savannah for Morons, The Trolley Tour. Front Porch is committed to social responsibility and making Savannah a happier, healthier, and more joyous place. We have launched Front Porch Community which includes a Health, Wellness & Anti-Stress Programming, and the Trauma Drama program in conjunction with the Chatham County Safety Net Planning Council. 

Created by four former New Yorkers living in Savannah, we have performed around the country (Chicago Improv Festival, New York SketchFest, and the DC Comedy Festival to name a few). Our crew has grown to include graduates of the Upright Citizens Brigade (NYC), People's Improv Theatre (NYC), iO (Chicago), The Groundlings (LA), and Theatre 99 (Charleston)--plus some exceedingly attractive homegrown talent.
