Improv I-4ever features three improv groups from Florida's Suncoast, giving audiences the chance to experience a wide range of improv styles, approaches, and humor. Featuring FST Improv (Sarasota, FL), Swan City Improv (Lakeland, FL), and The Commodore (Ybor City, FL)

FST IMPROV (Sarasota, FL) Sarasota’s original anti-depressant. FST Improv is the place to go when you’re looking for some fun, need reminding that everyone is nuts, or have nowhere else to go. Inspired by audience suggestions, FST Improv creates characters and sketches completely on the spot. No one – not even the performers themselves – knows what is going to happen next. It is this element of the unknown that makes every FST Improv show unique, and what makes for some of the most exciting moments onstage.

SWAN CITY (Lakeland, FL) A team of friends started this thing in a town that it should have never worked in, back in 2017. Those friends have since moved on to greater things and now the team that is left is so much better than them and if they hear this let it be known. This Swan City Improv team is Lakeland's Best team. We know this to be true.

THE COMMODORE (Ybor City, FL) presents is headlining show, The Captain’s Wheel, a competitive improv format where improvisers are presented with random challenges they must overcome using their skill and wit. Outcomes are decided by you, the audience, until a final performer is crowned victorious. Who will be the next "Captain?"
