KnifeStorm first practiced together 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".
