Founded in the Fall Semester of 2011, TBD Comedy is a relatively new comedy troupe on the Cal Berkeley campus. We explore both various longform and shortform improv formats in our shows and practices.
Birdstrike Theatre is UC Davis' premier improv comedy troupe. Founded in the early 2000's, Birdstrike has been the cause of countless giggles, guffaws and chortles for its audiences. Birdstrike predominantly performs longform improv, which focuses on scene and character-based humor, rather than shortform, like "Whose Line Is It Anyway." Birdstrike usually performs 3-4 "mini" shows every quarter that are entirely improv. At the end of every quarter, we have a big show composed of live and video sketch (pre-written) comedy. You can view some of our videos on Youtube (http://youtube.com/user/birdstriketheatre).
