Nox! bio: If you were patient enough to pay attention in Latin class, then you know that “nox” means “night.” Nox! started with the idea of focusing solely on performing a style called the Bat, which is an audio-only format done in complete darkness.

After exploring the dark, Nox!’s thirst for innovation and the D.C. fire code brought them back into the light. Creating new and intriguing forms has become their specialty, and they aim to be the most dynamic and versatile long-form improv troupe in DC. Nox!’s play is fueled by the mantra “get weird,” resulting in comedy that is often dark, physical, and high energy, yet patient.
