Act Social


From politics to medicine, Act Social explores the healing potential of applied improvisation. Features famed improv comedian Colin Mochrie of Whose Line is it, Anyway?

The principles of improv lead to hilarious comedy onstage but can they also be used to solve problems like depression, social anxiety, or conflict? Applied improvisers believe the answer is “Yes!”

In our documentary film, we show what happens when different kinds of people try improv: refugees, tragedy survivors, couples in counseling, and people involved in political debate.

In Act Social, you will also meet improv teachers who work with communities in need, giving audiences a never-before-seen look at the possibilities improv can bring to real life.
