Team Improv Jam SHOWCASE – 4th Thursdays @ 9:00 PM MT

Come to support our Showcase week, the jam will be the opener for our showcase week which includes teams that have been at the jam for three weeks straight. And for people who have individually been at the jam for three weeks straight will be eligible to play with either Barkley and/or District 9, two RISE Comedy Veteran teams. Come put your name in the bucket and you might just be a part of our Showcase week. And the best part… PAY WHAT YOU CAN!


A long form improv troupe in which none of the performers has a PhD (well… one of us does now…). Each show is inspired by a text message from the audience and always gives doses of excitement and emotion. As hosts of the weekly Team Jam on Thursday nights, Basement Doctors is well engrained in the RISE community. Each show, we invite a few teams from the Thursday night Team Jam to perform before us. We want to showcase the talented performers that have helped make this community so strong and one of a kind. Come out and join us for a laugh… Doctors’ orders.

Necromancer summons apparitions via improv. these apparitions are also known as “characters.” these characters have fears, desires, and deep, dark secrets. they write about these things in their diaries. the audience becomes privy to the content of their diaries thanks to a series of hexes and curses. and then, if the ritual has been performed correctly, the audience engages in laughter.

Benign Nuisance is an ensemble that embodies the spirit of organic discovery. In our performances, rigid narratives and predetermined plots give way to the exhilarating spontaneity of moment-to-moment improvisation. Our forte lies in the realm of organic, long-form improv, where each scene unfolds naturally, guided by genuine, in-the-moment interactions. As we explore this uncharted territory, we revel in the art of subtly escalating tension and the delight of playful uncertainty. Our goal is to captivate and slightly unsettle our audience, inviting them to join us in the unique, ever-evolving journey of each performance.
