The Beat Around

Inner Sanctum

5419 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90027

Featuring delightful first-page sketches by:

Julian Gonzalez & Jessica Svendsgaard

And improv performance magic by:

Tuesday Night Thunder (Jonny Svarzbein, Ronnie Adrian, and Anais Fairweather)
Hot Croissant (Jess Eason, Dahéli Hall, Kerry McGuire, Cara Meyers, Lisa Timmons)
Chaz Dean (Cassi Jerkins, Natalie Benedict, Clark Canez, Bozant Katzakian, Brian Bakos, Chuck Maa, Robbie Weber, Rosie Leisure, Saagar Shaikh)


Three teams of improvisers are given the first page of a sketch then they improvise the remaining beats as they would write it.   

What's the twist? 

Teams don't enter the theater until it's their turn to take the stage, so the audience gets to experience three fresh starts on the same sketch.

Every show ends with a Q&A with the teams and writers. 

**This is a monthly show! 8:30pm every 4th Thursday of the month!**
