Our Team

The Garys are a team of seven NYC-based long-form improvisers who formed in 2009 as students at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. Collectively, members have studied improv, sketch and theater at UCB, The Magnet (NYC), Second City (Chicago), BMI, and with teachers from iO Theatre (Chicago).  We have performed at venues all over NYC (Magnet, PIT, UCB) as well as at the Boston Improv Festival, the Providence Improv Festival, the UCB Del Close Marathon, the NYC Improv Festival and the Chicago Improv Festival, amongst others.

We’ve produced and hosted our own comedy show since 2010, a 75 minute show consisting of storytelling, stand-up and long-form improvisation.  We also produce and host The Garathon, an annual elimination-style, sixteen-team improv tournament – both of which are held at The Tank Theater in New York City.

If you are interested in including us in an upcoming show lineup (in NYC, venues in the northeast or on your college campus) please contact us here or at meetthegarys (at) gmail (dot) com.

Festival & Show Schedule

We just finished up performing TWO wonderful shows at the 10th Annual Providence Improv Festival in Rhode Island.  2013 marks our fourth, consecutive year performing at this festival and we would like to thank all the folks in Providence for being such a great audience!
