Philly Improv Theater (PHIT) is the home of alternative comedy theater in the Metro Philadelphia area. Founded as a nonprofit in 2005, PHIT embraces the art of improvisation as an end rather than a means â€“ creating and producing improv, sketch, and alternate comedy shows in the tradition of theaters like Chicagoâ€™s Second City and New Yorkâ€™s Upright Citizens Brigade. To further this philosophy, PHIT offers its own take on the theories and concepts behind good improvisation in a full curriculum of classes for performers of all skill levels taught by local talent and through master classes with distinguished performers and teachers from all over the world (including Impro author Keith Johnstone, Kevin Allison from MTVâ€™s The State, and former SNL writer Ali Farahnakian). Improv troupes produced and presented by PHIT have toured extensively and performed in festivals throughout North America.
