Three man comedy team Search Engine Improv (SEI) combines the best of Chicago and New York City styles of Long-Form improvised performance. Constantly working to develop not only their skills of improvisation, but also innovative approaches to performance, SEI creates uniquely styled shows and formats, each an exciting exploration of ways that long-form improvisation can be used to create compelling (and hilarious) theatre.

Having toured extensively SEI has made a name for itself and helped put Rochester on the map of the national improv scene.
