Press Quotes

“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
