History

Dreamboat formed after Brandon Gardner emailed a few students from his Improv 201 classes at UCB to see if they wanted to form a practice group. Dreamboat first practiced together as a team on Thursday, November 12, 2009 from 7:30PM - 10:30PM at Simple Studios. On November 20, 2009 they performed together for the first time, opening Bombardo's long-running show at Gotham City Improv.

They have since performed in countless shows all over the city with teams like Rogue Elephant, Iron Ruckus, Sherpa, Froduce, Tesla, and MADCAR.

As of January 28, 2011 Dreamboat has hosted a show at Under St. Marks on the fourth Friday of each month. The show starts at 10:30PM, admission is $6. To publicize the monthly show, Dreamboat put together a series of promotional videos which can be seen here [1].
