Host Who´s the best team on the indie scene? You tell us. Every week, three of New York City´s top indie improv teams converge onstage to see who can deliver the best fully improvised show. The champ is chosen solely by the audience vote so the future´s in your hands!
The winning team will come back the following week to defend their title and after three wins, they head off to the big show: Cage Match at UCB Chelsea, the OG of improv competitions.
Hosted by The Mannequin Room (Lou Gonzalez, Chrissie Gruebel and Brian Urreta).
