About SCI: Seoul City Improv was founded in 2007 and is Seoul’s first English-language improv comedy troupe. SCI began as a short-form improv group but has since branched out into other forms of improv, such as long-form and musical comedy improv. The group holds regular shows at the Korea Improv Theater and also hosts open practices to improvisers of all levels every Sunday from 6-9PM and Wednesday from 8-10pm. No experience is necessary so don’t be scared; just show up and have fun.

Directions: At Samgakji station (Line 4 and Line 6), take exit 3 and go straight for three blocks and take a left (just before the Chevrolet dealership). Continue straight for one block. The venue is in the basement to the right of Cafe Da.
