Who We Are

iO Comedy Network

Toting countless successful alumni like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Seth Meyers, the iO Theater has long been the home of long form improvisation. The iO Comedy Network, iO’s new online video channel, distills the heart and soul of iO’s comedy into poignant, goofy, and my-mouth-hurts-from-smiling-so-much funny videos. There are ways to get involved for any level experience, from our introductory classes to our own iO Comedy Network Originals.

Originals

Written and produced by our in-house staff, Originals are the iOCN’s bread and butter. We aim to take the politically conscious, thoughtful attitude of the live improv comedy that iO is known for, and share it with the world through short, original comedic videos.

The Hive

(in-house incubator program)

A live, monthly video showcase and ongoing program designed to incubate independent video sketch groups into the iO Comedy Network Collective. We help your video team make original content with our filmmaking gear, iO access, and distribution/marketing via the iO Comedy Network channel. Projects premiere at a monthly live show where the Hive members will learn from industry guest speakers and network with other groups.
