“Improv Everywhere is fighting the good fight to keep NYC unpredictable, off the grid and balls-out funny. I mean, how could you not laugh at someone setting themselves up as a bathroom attendant at the Times Square McDonald’s or staging a synchronized-swimming performance in the Washington Square Park fountain?” – Dan Avery, Time Out New York
“Improv Everywhere tramples the lines drawn between spectacle and spectator, theatre and real life, public and private, performance and protest, and reclaims the streets for ordinary people.” – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
“Improv Everywhere is reliably hilarious to millions of people. The masters of mischief. [The Frozen Grand Central stunt] is one of the funniest moments ever captured on tape.” – Martin Bashir, ABC News Nightline
“Improv Everywhere has heightened public spectacle to an artform. Hilarious.” – Faith Salie, Public Radio International
“The largest network of pranksters ever assembled, Improv Everywhere is the leading light in the Golden Age of the Prank. YouTube gods.”- Maxim
