Brainwaves is a crisp ensemble of high energy, intelligent wit, and random stupidity. This year we celebrate our 25th anniversary of performing short form improvisation! We perform regularly at The Shoe Box Theater in Southeast Portland and love to invite guest improvisers from Portland’s other top groups to play with us. We are veterans of the Chicago Improv Festival and Austin’s Big Stinkin Improv Festival and members of the group have gone on to perform on SNL and with Chicago’s Second City. We have toured across the U.S., performing at colleges and for corporations like Intel, Starbucks, and Nike. Wait, there’s more! We also teach classes too! You can read more about our workshops on the “workshop” page of this site. We are so grateful for your interest and we hope to see you at the Shoebox!
