History

They formed in NYC and first practiced together under the name KnifeStorm on April 15, 2008. Knifestorm has performed in over 40 shows throughout Manhattan to literally tens of people. Inside their diverse ranks are professionally-trained clowns, stand-up comics, sketch comedians, YouTube B-Listers, professional models and Harvard grads, not to mention veterans of famed New York-based improv teams like Fat Penguin, Rimbombo and Naked Boys Improvising.

Knifestorm performs a loose yet aggressive freeform improv show, with bold physical play and clever repartee that has quickly garnered them an ever-growing fan base. They have been touted as the (physically) best-looking improv team since Elite Model Management formed their very own troupe, the now defunct "Yes and…Cashmere".
