Bronson Improvised Rom-Com

Just in time for Valentine's Day, Bronson brings you an hour long improvised romantic comedy! Girl meets boy meets boy meets grandma meets lawyer meets magazine writer meets dog owner meets the president of Brazil meets a cupcake maker, and they all fall in love!

Bronson brings the improvised-movie-form established in Sweden by Anders Fors to New York City. Together they have over 9,000 combined years of improv experience and perform movies of all genres - including Rom-Com's, Sci-Fi, Superhero, Horror, and Noir. Their bread and butter is narrative-heavy ACTION! sets. This ensemble comes equipped with a unique set of skills to perform back alley brawls and martial art free-for-alls, fire fights, car chases, interrogations, intense stares, and of course, EXPLOSIONS.

Bronson has toured all over the world, performing at the Steelstacks Improv Festival in PA, the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival, Baltimore Improv Group at the Single Carrot Theatre, and at the Reykjavík Improv Festival in Iceland.
