Reindeer Games

Its time for some Ha-Ha-Holiday fun with the League of Pointless Improvisers!

Each show opens with a guest improv group, followed by the short form fun of Reindeer Games, starring the League of Pointless Improvisers. Our house team will take suggestions from the audience and show off their quick wits this holiday inspired show.

The evening closes with the League performing their scenic long form improv, the Water Form. This original style, developed at Pointless specifically for the League, draws inspiration from the classic forms (the Harold, Deconstruction, La Ronde, and others), then reforms it into its own fluid, powerful force. No two shows are the same!
