Sea Tea Improv performs both short-form improvisational comedy (as seen on “Whose Line is It Anyway”) and long-form improv (made famous by Second City and Upright Citizens Brigade).  We are based in Hartford, Connecticut.

Our mission is to make high-quality, entertaining improvisation widely available in Connecticut and elsewhere.  We love what we do and want to do it as often as possible.  To that end, we will perform just about anywhere, anywhere between three minutes and three hours (although we’re always happy to break a record). 

Sea Tea offers a monthly dinner theater show in Connecticut’s famous Brew-Ha-Ha Comedy Club in the basement of City Steam Brewery Café. Since our inception in April 2009, we have also performed at private parties, bars, restaurants, coffee houses, corporate functions, schools, First Night Hartford, the Providence Improv Festival (2010 and 2011), Improvaganza at Playhouse on Park in West Hartford, the Hartford Children’s Theatre, Children’s Hospitals, Trinity on Main and Hole-in-the-Wall Theater in New Britain, The Mark Twain House & Museum, and the nation’s oldest public art museum, the Wadsworth Athenaeum. 

Sea Tea is known for partnering with other arts organizations and improvisational groups to provide audiences with eclectic artistic evenings. We have performed alongside the bands String Theorie, Tip the Van, and Standish Arms; HartBeat Ensemble; Improv Cage Match winners Horse Lincoln and Free Lunch; international champion Barbershop Quartet Men in Black; and many more. We are always happy to form new partnerships.

The members of Sea Tea Improv have logged many hours of professional training with a variety of theaters, including Hartford Stage, Playhouse on Park, The Magnet, and Upright Citizens Brigade in New York City. We have been featured as a group and individually on Better Connecticut, CT Now, Mass Appeal, WNPR, ESPN and in the Hartford Courant.
