In addition to writing for the stage and screen, members have also performed at prestigious comedy festivals including Montreal Just for Laughs, The San Francisco Sketch Fest and The Bridgetown Comedy Festival just to name a few. Every Friday night at 9PM at M.I.’s Westside Comedy Theater, come see The Waterbrains literally bring it. If you enjoy being entertained, this is the show for you.
With a history that spans over 700 live shows, the Waterbrains, (formerly of the Empty Stage), perform improv comedy Friday nights at MI's Westside Comedy Theater in Santa Monica, and selected Saturdays at the Fanatic Salon in West LA.
Conceived by director Stan Wells, the clap-in form of improv comedy has been the Waterbrains' trademark since the group's inception. No Harolds or games. Just our own signature long form , which generally works up into a comedy frenzy by the end of the show. It's a time-tested funnier breed of improvisation. Experience counts.
You may recognize a few faces from film and TV. And if you don't watch TV, we'll lay claim to many roles you've missed. Trust us. But our alumni does include Kristen Wiig, some Groundlings Sunday company folks, and even a Groundling. And that's the truth...so far as you know.
There are indeed quite a lot of us compared to most improv groups. At any given show, you may see four, you may see all 18. Hell, we can't necessarily even count ourselves. That's math. We're better at comedy.
For deliciously extreme, inappropriate, wild, amazing improv, you don't want to miss the Waterbrains. Experience counts.
Pick up tickets by name and printed receipt at the Box office. Tickets available 30 minutes prior to show times.
The "A" stands for alley as we are located in the alley between 3rd and 4th street just South of Arizona.
