About

Better Than Bacon Improv is a short form, improv comedy troupe based in West Chester, PA. BTB performs short skits and games based on audience suggestions, often inviting audience members on stage. Improv comedy, as they always say in show openers, is a one-time only performance without scripts or nets. What audiences experience in one show will never be seen again. The spontaneity of improv makes improvisational comedy one of the most challenging forms of comedy to perform.

ABOUT BETTER THAN BACON IMPROV

A few crazy folks met at a local improv comedy class and became friends. Those same folks kept taking improv comedy classes until there were no more local classes to take. In 2010, after finding a director and a few more performers, Better Than Bacon (BTB) was born. They had their first professional gig in 2011 and celebrated their 11th anniversary in June!

BTB’s current troupe of 10 members hail from all over the SE Philly suburbs, Malvern, Exton, West Chester, Kennett Square, Phoenixville, Swarthmore, and Wilmington DE. The troupe’s artistic backgrounds include improv, acting, stand-up comedy, and music.
