Owner description: The N Crowd is a short form improv comedy troupe that has been performing weekly in Philadelphia since April 2005. Each hilarious scene starts with a suggestion from the audience. You won't legally have this much fun in 90 minutes for $10. Come out and see what the Philly Style Magazine said was "Philadelphia's premiere improv troupe". Currently, The N Crowd performs at 8 p.m. every Friday at The Actors Center.

A great little local comedy club. Ever seen “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” with Drew Carey? That is exactly what this is, improve comedy. Some pretty funny stuff there, and some not quite as funny. But that’s the joy of it, it’s all brand new. Very small crowd, only seating for about 25-30 people so a very intimate venue. We had a good time and would do it again.

I was skeptical at first given the price, but a few yuks into the act, I was hooked. The comedy ebbed and flowed from humorous to side splitting. The chemistry between the comedians is great. Add a lively audience and the act really clicks. I particularly liked the game of "ask the experts." The conspiracy theorist had me crying. We will be back to support this fledgling group.

improv is hard to do and they have a great cast and show. the audience is key here, so it is best to bring a few people with you to join in. price is very reasonable so no reason not to give it a try

We booked tickets on the internet for the Friday night show, ticket prices were very reasonable. We took a taxi from our hotel to the show. There are no signs hanging up on the building, the neighborhood looked like it was run down a bit. Wasn't sure the taxi driver took us to the right spot. When we exit the taxi cab, we noticed a sign on the sidewalk, pointing us to the building. The stage is upstairs it is very small, perhaps 40 people is the max capacity. The show began with 6 performers, pretty much doing the same gigs as the Drew Carey show. There were some good lines, that made us laugh pretty good, but for the most part the sketches were average at best, only generating a few chuckles. The chairs were small metal chairs, very uncomfortable. When we left the show there wasn't much traffic on the street, to hail a taxi, so we ended up walking back to the hotel, didn't encounter any issues while walking.
