The Flip Side - Improv at Vivid


The Flip Side

The Flip Side is Vivid's house improv team, featuring Brad Barton, Clark Carmichael, Laura Ekstrand, Noreen Farley, Lulu French, Dave Maulbeck, Scott McGowan, Becca McLarty, Emily Williams and David Lee White.


The only thing predictable about The Flip Side's shows are the laughs! Based on improv techniques created by The Groundlings, Upright Citizens' Brigade and The Magnet, The Flip Side offers our unique spin on short-form improv, taking audience input to create instant scenes that are both unexpected and hilarious.

No two shows are alike, and the most important ingredient in every show is the audience! So come join us and help create the fun that is The Flip Side!

If you and your staff are looking for a fresh way to  improve the quality and substance of the work that you do, schedule an Improv for Business staff training workshop. It's a fun, interactive way to build your team and cultivate new skills!

Bring The Flip Side to your event! With Improv To Go, Vivid will custom-create a unique improv show for your special event, using the themes and details you provide.  Their performance will entertain and delight your guests in a totally original way!
