Some people prefer rehearsed acts and some people prefer hilarity happening on the spot. If you're part of the latter group, then take a look through City Guide's calendar to see what the latest and greatest improv shows are this month in New York City. At spots like the Upright Citizens Brigade, the Magnet Theater, and the Peoples Improv Theater, be prepared to laugh!

The Elastic Time Cannon - The PIT Loft
May 19, 2018 - New York

The Elastic Time Cannon is a mind bending, time blending, never ending adventure through the space-time continuum. With the suggestion of an opening line of dialogue this extratemporal cast creates an expanding and eventually collapsing universe of characters all born from the same moment in time. ETC shows are marked with causal loops, dimensional incursions, and a multiverse of high stakes moments. It's an absurd, laugh out loud thrill ride of a show!
