NEW YORK, NEW YORK

EMPIRE is a ‘super group’ featuring NYC’s best veteran musical improvers (Baby Wants Candy, North Coast, Vern, Blank!) from the stage and screen. Accompanied by a live band (also improvising!), all YOU have to do is shout out a show title and prepare to have you mind blown as the cast belts their faces off and freestyle raps with magical ease, creating a completely original show off-the-cuff.
Our ‘super group’ includes members who perform and teach at NYC’s top comedy institutions including the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, The Magnet, and The PIT. Each player has had the privilege to perform in prestigious festivals and venues like the Edinburgh Fringe Fest in Scotland, the Kennedy Center in DC, and at theaters and colleges in Iceland, Germany, England, Poland, Canada, Austria and more! When not performing, our writing and acting credits can be found for shows like The Late Show with Jimmy Fallon, The Amber Ruffin Show, The Bleacher Report, Comedy Central, POSE, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel; Chris Gethard Presents; Girls5Eva, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and so many more!
