LIZARD GIRL is an ensemble and aspiring cult at Washington Improv Theater.

Formed in May 2016, LIZARD GIRL is a troupe tracing its roots back to the golden age of Obama-era Harold teams at WIT. Now performing as an ensemble, the group strives to create sharp comedic shows by inviting you into their quirky world. LIZARD GIRL asks the audience for a location and from there invites you to get to know the characters in this location by building a backstory for these characters and this world through various flashbacks.

Much of the group’s success can be attributed to their shared love of collaborative creation and subverting expectations. LIZARD GIRL is also the only known team in DC to have bombed in front of award-winning author Jonathan Safran Foer.
