Press PlayWashington, DC
About Press PlayPress Play is a long-form improv comedy troupe based in Washington, D.C. Press Play loves performing in venues across Washington, D.C. and across the nation when we can. We've had the privilege of performing at the Baltimore Improv Festival; Boston Comedy Arts Festival; Chicago Improv Festival; Del Close Marathon (NYC); Harrisburg Comedy Throwdown; NYC Improv Festival; SteelStacks Comedy Festival (Bethlehem, PA); and Out of Bounds Comedy Festival (Austin). Press Play loves improv, the sound of a page turning, and you. Yeah, accept it.
Press Play formed in August 2010.
Members of Press Play have hundreds, or even thousands, of hours of experience performing and training with several teams. Each Press Play-er is in at least two active improv troupes, most are or have been on WIT's house or Harold teams, and several teach improv classes regularly. We perform regularly every month at venues in and around Washington, DC and have recently started to do sketch comedy together.
Also, each member has completed the longform curriculum of the Washington Improv Theatre (WIT) and has additional training elsewhere, including iO, Second City, UCB (NY), and Magnet (NYC).
