THE STANFORD IMPROVISORS (the SImps) were founded in the spring of 1991 by Patricia Ryan, to train and perform improvisational games and theatrical forms, and especially those techniques developed by Keith Johnstone. They continue to teach and perform improv at Stanford and in the bay under the direction of Dan Klein.
