Great look at improv community
28 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

An outstanding cast with a really accurate take on improv. The film does a great job showing the different personalities in the group and how they manage to come together as one, only to fall apart in the end. Very insightful work by Birbiglia.

The casting was just about perfect, I loved seeing improv vets like Chris Gethard and Tami Sagher get their chance in this film. The teaching scenes were particularly entertaining. While most improv players won't ever get close to anything like an SNL audition, the ups and downs of an improv group will ring true.

Just about the right length with the requisite sappiness and lover story to tie it all together.
