What is the show?

Described “As if C-SPAN were suddenly swarmed by the cast of SNL,” The Theater of Public Policy has garnered national media attention and fans for its unique blend of serious issues and improv comedy.

  • Shows open with a lively conversation with a newsmaker or policy wonk.

  • That conversation inspires a team of Minnesota’s most sharpest improvisers, who create entirely spontaneous sketches based on the interview.

  • The expert guest(s) then answers questions from the audience.

  • The show wraps with one last round of improv from the cast.

If you are coming to a show and require interpreter services or need special accommodations, please let us know. Please give us at least 2 weeks notice and we will do our best to meet your needs.
