Best Coast Improv is one of Orange County's premiere improv companies, focusing on bringing high quality improv to provide you with a high quantity of laughs.  Our style is all about making an audience feel welcomed as friends into the wild party that is our comedy.  Our shows aim to be a fun, wholesome, hilarious night out (with a fair share of dirty words sprinkled in, so young ones beware)!  If you're looking for a great, affordable date night, or a night out with friends, or a new way to celebrate your birthday, a holiday, or an anniversary, come laugh harder than you can remember laughing in a long time, or your money back!
Find us at Grand Central Art Center: 125 N. Broadway, Santa Ana, CA 92701
We're across from Lola Gaspar's and adjacent to The Gypsy Den.


Our shows are the 1st Saturday evening of every month, and usually the 3rd Saturday as well.  We have 3 outstanding shows in our time slots, and all of them are only $5:

PLEASE TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY - a show where true life stories told by a guest inspire our entire show
