The team is named after improvisor and founding member Matt DeCoster, and is one of very few improv teams that are named after real people (another being Terry Jinn Presents Sgt. Frankenstein).

After doing the DeConstruction for the 2008 Harold Team Challenge, DeCoster began using a deconstructed scene for their Harold openings.

Ari was Kirk's Level 1 teacher in January 2003.

Their starter name was Road Hamlet.
