M.i.'s Westside Comedy Theater is the L.A.-area home of Mission IMPROVable.

It is located at 1323-A Third Street Promenade, Santa Monica, CA 90401 (in the alley between 3rd & 4th). WCT Website.

The theater (formerly The Westside Eclectic) was acquired by M.i. in April 2009. It focuses on all aspects of comedy, with primary attention given to improv & stand-up.

The Training Center at M.i.'s WCT offers a 6-level improvisation program and a 2-level stand-up program, in addition to frequent casting workshops and elective courses. A comedy writing program is scheduled to begin in early 2010.

Shows run every night of the week. Highlights include Wednesday night's "The Punk House", Thursday night's "The Grind" (longform by the members of M.i.) followed by the "WCT Improv Jam", and Friday night's marquee show "The Mission IMPROVable Show" (the popular touring shortform show). The theater does not have a liquor license, but is BYOB.
