Block Party - Showcasing Baltimore's Best Black Improv

An improv comedy show presented by Highwire Improv at BlakWater House, Block Party is two hours of the funniest improv in Baltimore. A showcase of Baltimore’s best Black improv comedians, this show will feature short-form comedy games, long-form sitcom-style shows, interviews and more. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.

This lineup features:

Cake Walk, an independent all-Black improv troupe that has toured all over the United States, won a global March Madness of Improv tournament against 63 other teams, who have pioneered sitcom-style improv shows from Baltimore.

Tastemakers, a show that combines interview and improv to learn about the world’s coolest people – creatives, entrepreneurs, change agents and community leaders, then turns things around into incredible comedy.

The show is at BlakWater Lounge. A multiuse performance venue, gallery, and event space in the Bromo Arts District in downtown Baltimore. BlakWater Lounge is a 1300-square-foot, new-industrial space located on the top floor of Maryland Art Place. We are dedicated to hosting unique, creative events that showcase Baltimore City’s most innovative and dedicated talent.
