Improv comedy has been a tradition at Planet Ant since the early days of our theatre. It all started nearly 20 years ago when our Improv Colony Home Team was founded by Second City Alums Margaret Edwartowski, Nancy Edwards, and Josh Funk. This celebrated troupe has been performing every Monday night ever since.

Since the beginning Home Team members have come and gone as they pursue other projects and opportunities, but the Planet Ant stage is always a welcome place for our improv family – once a Home Team member, always a Home Team member. That's why you'll never know just who you'll see take our stage on a Monday night, but one thing is for sure...you'll always be in for a treat!
