WIT is the premier destination for improv comedy in DC. We deliver hilarious, dynamic, and innovative shows, featuring the most talented and experienced improvisers in the region. Join us for an unforgettable evening of improvised comedy that will surprise and delight you!

WIT is currently in artistic residence at Studio Theatre located along the bustling 14th St. NW corridor, where you’ll find plenty of places to grab a drink or a bite to eat before or after the show.

WIT is home to a bevy of company ensembles that include the long-running musical improv group iMusical, as well as the all-Black ensemble Lena Dunham, and the all-Woman ensemble Hellcat (plus many others).

Inspired by a suggestion from the audience,* each performance is completely unscripted and totally unpredictable. In fact, most first-time audience members find it hard to believe that what they’re seeing is truly made up on-the-spot! (Trust us, it is!)

Refreshingly, no two shows are ever the same, so you can keep coming back for more live comedy week after week throughout the year!

Our performers have gone on to work for Comedy Central, The Daily Show, and Saturday Night Live… so be prepared to laugh (hard) and always expect the unexpected!

*Don’t worry, they won’t call on you unless you raise your hand!
