Comedy | ATLAS IMPROV CO.
Atlas Improv Co. was founded in early 2004 by Mary Parmentier and Bryan Judkins. Their dream was to explore and innovate beyond what was familiar. In the mid 1980s, as ComedySportz-Madison, we performed mainly short-form, a type of improvisational theatre where a show is segmented into five-to-ten-minute scenes and games. We loved what we were doing, and, during that time, we developed one of the show formats that we still perform today. It’s as engaging for audiences and performers as ever. As managers, Parmentier and Judkins sought a creative environment that challenged and fulfilled us artistically and realized that short-form wasn’t enough. In 2004, they launched Atlas Improv Co. The active members of ComedySportz-Madison followed Parmentier and Judkins to do something new and amazing, and today, Atlas Improv fosters an expert in each of its players. In story arc, character building, or pure wit, every performer is a master.
