Finest City Improv

Laughter and Drinks in a Relaxed Setting

Included in San Diego Magazine's "Best Of San Diego," Finest City Improv is San Diego's premier club for professional improv comedy. Located in the historic Hillcrest neighborhood, just minutes north of Downtown, you'll find laughter comes easily and by the plenty here. Comedians make up scenes right on the spot, weaving together hilarious stories that will leave you asking, "how do they DO that?!" 

Finest City Improv boasts a newly constructed outdoor patio and stage, as well as an intimate indoor stage that seats just forty. With our drink menu full of local brews, it's a perfect place to unwind and celebrate with laughter after a long day. The theatre runs shows every weekend, featuring comics trained in the art of laughter. Curious? You'll just have to come to see for yourself!
