Who is MAD?

The horse of course.

Is It MADness?

MAD Improv is Madrid’s Improvised Comedy Theater in English. Founded on January 1, 2014 with the patronage of Scott Cleverdon & Assumpta Serna and their amazing acting for the camera school: Fundación First Team. What is MAD? Umm… Well, explaining a name is a lot like explaining a joke and we at MAD Improv pride our selves in our sense of humor. So we won’t explain the methods to our MADness, suffice is to say that here in MADrid, we have MAD creativity. What is improv?

Read about it on Wikipedia (Cheating, We know). Not into reading? Here’s half a picture of a horse:

It doesn’t really have much to do with improv. But indirectly ANYTHING can show up during a show. From suggestions (words used to give inspiration at the beginning of a scene) to the ‘picture’ painted by the improvisers.

Not into horses? Find out for yourself! Come to a Saturday Weekly Gym session or one of our shows and get MAD with us:

Origins

MAD Improv was founded in January of 2014. A comedian from Orlando and an actor from New York noticed that there was a decided lack of Improvised Theater in English in Madrid and so they approached a cinema scholar from Edinburgh who ran an acting on camera school known as Fundación First Team where MAD Improv lives to this day.

Mission

From the very first days of it’s inception, MAD has been clear and held firm its principle motives for existing. To create, grow and have fun! We are all about making our people feel at home in a safe environment for taking risks, trying new things and existing outside of our comfort zones. All of these elements ensure that we grow as actors and more importantly as people. The best part is the way we do it, we have fun along the way. Furthermore, we are committed to creating an open forum for English language theater and indeed all the creative arts in English and any other language in Madrid.
