A completely improvised show that unfolds backward in time, similar to the movie Memento. Unlike anything that fans of improv and comedy at the Philly Fringe have ever seen before, it's an evening of completely engrossing and entertaining theater from the curtain call to the opening suggestion.


Philly Improv Theater (PHIT) is a showcase for Philadelphia comedy shows - and home to the best improv, sketch, stand-up and variety comedy Philadelphia has to offer! In addition to our more than 300 popular and affordable BYOB shows at The Shubin Theatre each year, PHIT has also produced for the Philly Fringe Festival and taken its company on the road throughout the United States (to New York, Los Angles, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, Baltimore, Austin, Seattle & other great cities and states). PHIT’s Training Center is the largest of its kind between New York and Chicago and introduces hundreds of everyday people to the world of comedy each year. We offer extensive training in improv, sketch comedy, stand-up, and storytelling for students of all ages in a relaxed community setting with a focus on having fun, learning, and laughing a lot. Students and instructors from PHIT have gone on to become performers on our stage, hot acts at comedy festivals around the country, published authors, and even writers and performers for TV.
