Amusement & Entertainment
Better Than Bacon Improv is a short form improv comedy troupe based in West Chester, PA. BTB does short skits and games based on audience suggestions, and often invites audience members on stage to help out. Improv comedy, as we say in our show openers, is a one-time only performance. We work without a script or a net. What you see in one show will never be seen again. The spontaneity of improv makes improvisational comedy one of the most challenging forms of comedy to perform.
Our current troupe of 11 members hail from all over the SE Philly suburbs, Malvern, Exton, West Chester, Kennett Square, Phoenixville, Swarthmore, and Wilmington DE. Our artistic backgrounds include improv, acting, stand-up comedy, and music.
We are excited to perform regularly at great venues like the Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center (West Chester), the Kennett Flash (Kennett Square) and The Media Arts Council (Media) . We also perform at other venues near and far, do private, corporate, and fundraising gigs, and run team building workshops for companies and organizations.
In 2017, Better Than Bacon started its “Bacon Gives Back” program program that provides non-profit organizations in our region the opportunity to raise funds based on ticket sales from our performances. We look forward to helping non-profit organizations make a difference in our communities!
