We're The Outcasters...

The Outcasters are a family-friendly Improvisational Comedy Troupe. We’re an off-the-cuff group of friends committed to 100% pure, unrefined improvisation comedy. We make up scenes and situations live using only audience suggestions.

No planning. No scripts. No net.

Our players are experienced in the local improv scene and offer a variety of classes, workshops and improv shows throughout the year, performing regularly at local venues and private engagements.

Our improv games will be familiar to those who have watched the hit TV show, Whose Line Is It Anyway? It’s all about thinking on our feet, making stuff up on the spot… and deeply hoping nobody realizes we’re flying by the seat of our pants! We not only invite our audience members to suggest topics for us to use in scenes, but we sometimes even have them join us on stage for fun games and imaginative stories!

Each of The Outcasters’ shows is a “World Premiere” that’s never been seen before and will never be seen again! The Outcasters train weekly in Scottsdale, Arizona. We welcome you to join us for a class or show! C’mon, flex your creative muscles and join us as we make stuff up!

Meet The Outcasters:

We’re proud of our amazing improv troupe! We are committed to practicing the art of improvisation, with intensive coaching and a plethora of engaging games. Our members come from diverse backgrounds and bring a variety of talents to the stage. There’s ever a dull moment when The Outcasters are around! Our shows always feature our core troupe as well as special guest improvisers… students who have shown strong abilities in their improv skills. 

The Outcasters are kind of like superheroes; by day they’re anything from doctors to marketers, servers to salesmen; and by night they become the Outcasters Team of Super Humans, saving everyone from boring evenings by bringing laughter into their lives! We hope you’ll get to know them personally by attending one of our shows or dropping in for an improv class (no reservation necessary!). Classes are held every Wednesday from 6:00 to 8:30 pm at 8360 E Raintree Drive, Suite #110 in Scottsdale, Arizona. It’s the best $10 you’ll spend for a night out! And who knows, you might see your photo up here with the Outcasters crew! 

The Outcasters Troupe photos will be published as soon as the pandemic subsides and the crew gets haircuts!

Meet the Outcasters' Chameleon Mascot, Banter!

The Outcasters Mascot BANTER

As a perceptive chameleon, Banter recognizes the importance of being adaptable. Banter came to be the Outcasters’ mascot after trying to find a place to cool off from the blazing Arizona sun. He stumbled inside a drop-in improv class and, after seeing what The Outcasters were all about, he quickly realized he was home! Whether you’re an experienced improviser, just beginning your improv journey, or attending one of our shows, Banter invites you to join us!
