THE GALE is an entirely improvised comedy show which premiered on the world famous Groundlings stage in 2015 and has been selling out monthly performances ever since. Created by Groundlings main company member Chris Eckert, developed by Holly Mandel, and directed by Groundlings alumni Karen Maruyama, The GALE features some of the best and funniest queer (or LGBTQ) improvisational actors in the United States.

Each show runs roughly 90 minutes and features two acts, the first a long form ‘clap in’ style, the second a long form version of a one act play. Members of The GALE have been featured in film, television, and on Broadway. Guests have included talents such as Academy Award winner Jim Rash, Chelsea Lately’s Fortune Feimster, and Superstore’s Nico Santos. Every month, we get together and celebrate all the joyously queer things about the world.

Every performance highlights and provides a brief history on an icon of the LGBTQ movement. And every performance features 90 minutes of gut busting comedy for our audience, be they queer or straight, or Travis from Houston, who’s somewhere in the middle and still figuring it out so please stop asking. We hope you can come see us. If you can’t, we still love you all the same.
