We offer special packages and group discounts to every show in our regular performance schedule! (Group discount does not apply on Tuesday, Saturday or Sunday nights.)

Looking to make it a bigger event? Rent out our bar and lounge for private use. You can also have it catered for an even fancier affair!

We Have Options:

Improv Asylum is the perfect alternative to your typical private event. Each and every private show we perform is completely customizable and unique to YOUR group. The show we perform for you will have never been seen by anyone else… and it will never be seen again!

Our show consists of short scenes that are improvised on the spot based on a variety of information. Throughout the show, our cast will ask questions and improvise scenes based on the answers we receive. We also use a packet of information you provide us before the show to incorporate specific, inside details about your group into our scenes. It’s always a fun surprise when Matt from Marketing (who just loves ballroom dancing) is mentioned in a scene without him even saying a word!

Private shows can be held any time or anywhere you want! Come to our 200-seat theater in the North End or let us do the traveling and we’ll come to you! We have entertained all sorts of associations, non-profit organizations, schools and companies across the country, so there’s no limit to what we can do!

Think your group might want some food and drinks? Let’s make that happen, too!

If you’re interested in a custom show as a part of your corporate event, you could even Start your event off with our interactive Corporate Training program where our trainers will use the foundation of improv to have you participate in exercises that focus on enhancing the skills and practices you want to see your team excel in.

"With IA Innovation and Robert Melley and his team we have found a partner for leadership communication which provide us with ideas and programs that even exceed our expectations. In 2012 they supported us at the Zeiss Strategy Summit which was held at Harvard Business School – with more than 100 top executives from all Zeiss entities participating in a full-day program on leadership and communication. In 2013 we were happy that they joined our Vision Care Business Group Leadership Summit in Frankfort, also with more than 100 executives in attendance, and provided the leadership team with a customized, entertaining and very instructing program that addressed the main challenges of our business.

The days with IA Innovation have made lasting impressions and the general feedback from the vast majority of participants is that they learned something sustainable for their work and their own professional development. We are deeply convinced that the way IA Innovation has defined to take leadership communication to the next level is unique in its approach and in its sustainable outcome for participants and company. . ."

Check out what MassChallenge and the boot campers had to say about us and our program! Some great video too!"

"We loved working with the energetic, creative, and agile Improv Asylum team at our annual Store Leader Conference in Las Vegas. They delivered “Yes, And” training to help every store team build rapport and to authentically create guest value. Over 5,000 leaders learned how to use focused listening for building rapport and sales, and they learned how to create a culture that exceeds guest expectations with social confidence, agility and creativity."
