What do you get for being one of the longest-lasting, most influential troupes in the Bay Area improv scene? A large slab of shiny lucite and the improv community’s undying appreciation, of course…!
The San Francisco Improv Festival is proud to honor the Flash Family for over 25 years of outstanding work spanning the 70’s through the early 2000’s, influencing generations of improvisors and entertaining & enlightening countless thousands of Bay Area audience members.
From giving Rafe Chase his first improv class to successfully bringing improvisational theater to rock venues, to spanning the bridge between SF’s hugely influential improv troupe, The Committee, Improvisation Inc., BATS Improv, and a myriad of other groups, Flash Family has earned a prime seat at the SF improv banquet.
