This energetic professional cast comes from a variety of backgrounds including the dramatic stage, film, tv, stand-up, opera, classical and musical theatre.  Turn the "8" on its side and you will find an infinity sign: "nothing is ever enough". There is no such thing as too much heart and energy on stage or in life. Eight is NEVER Enough has a variety of influences including classic theatrical and television comedy shows from the 20th century. As one of the few NY-based improv companies focusing on short-form improvisation, the company performs up to 15 performances every week for student groups and touring shows. Audience participation is always key as each show incorporates volunteers and ideas from the crowd into every scene, skit and song. Specializing in music, physical comedy and old school slapstick, EIGHT presents high energy shows combining original characters and improvised musical songs.

EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH classes bring that same BIG CHOICES approach to Improv and Stand-Up comedy. Classes for professional performers, adults self-enrichment, teens and kids all start with one philosophy, "HAVE FUN!" Erase all fears and let go, then see what your own mind and souls can create...

As a newbie to improv, I really enjoyed this course. It was a nice sized group and the activities were really engaging. Just wish it was a little longer, but other than that had a good time! Very cool teacher, too.

The session never started. I paid $10, got my zoom link in email, started up the zoom session, and waited 15 minutes after the supposed start time for the host to start the meeting. This was frustrating, but I contacted the responsible party who had been sick and who offered me two free sessions as a way of apology. I appreciated the attempt to make things right after that incident.
