sparksofinsanitySparks of Insanity, New Jersey’s only professional teen improv troupe, is celebrating five years by presenting an evening of improvisational comedy featuring current members and many original members that will be joining the show from college break!

Over its five years, Sparks of Insanity has not only brought laughter across New Jersey in theatres and high schools auditoriums, but have been invited to perform at special events, like the Giggles Theatre in St. Joseph Children's Hospital in Paterson and the learning and developmental disability center, Jespy House in South Orange.

On Friday November 29th, members old and new will unite and battle it out to make an evening that is sure to be both fun and inspirational for the whole family! Past members of the troupe have gone on to remarkable experiences including Ivy League schools, performance programs, filmmaking, the military and more, and current members aspire to fields ranging from education to politics.

These inspiring young people praise improv as a driving force for them and seek to share their skills with others in amazing ways. Troupe director Ted Wrigley says, "These amazing performers I have had the privilege to work with over the past five years have shared with me that improv not only is a creative outlet for them, but has made their lives better in social situations, relating to family and making them feel more confident about themselves over all."

So come join them at the New Jersey School of Dramatic Arts and see what there is to love about improv comedy! The show is based entirely on audience suggestions! In addition to providing the material for the show, audience members are encouraged to bring their own crazy "props" that the actors will use during the show!
