Jet City Improv says
Jet City Improv is proud to present the world premier of PERIODS IN HISTORY, a crass and fearless comedy about the whole of human history performed by an all-female cast of improvisers.

Audiences are invited to experience the past like never before as they submit stories about their modern-day life and discover their connection to infamous, obscure, or completely fictionalized events in history in ways they never could have imagined.

Each performance will offer several chances for volunteers from the audience to learn about the historical significance of their life through a series of improvised biographies, reenactments, and the occasional tall tale, sparing none of the awful details that made the past so miserable.

Performances are Saturday nights at 10:30pm from Oct 15 through Nov 18. Advance tickets to all performances are $15 for general admission ($18 at the door), $12 for students, seniors,
military personnel, and TPS members ($15 at the door).

Because history is full of awful people saying and doing awful things, this show is for mature audiences only.

In the spirit of Jet City Improv’s outreach work, audiences attending a performance of PERIODS IN HISTORY can receive a free small popcorn when in exchange for a donation for All Cycles, a grassroots organization that provides menstrual supplies for homeless or income-insecure people in Seattle of all or no genders​. Acceptable donations include new and unopened packages of pads, tampons, body wipes, and cotton underwear of various sizes and styles. Audience members simply need to drop off their donation at the concessions stand before the performance to receive a free small popcorn as a way of saying thanks, limit one per person. More information on All Cycles can be found at

PERIODS IN HISTORY is the newest addition to JCI Late Night, a collection of original formats that aim to push the boundaries of theater, uniting performers and audiences around a few
thematic rules before setting them loose in pursuit of fast, funny, intelligent comedy that holds nothing back. Often provocative and always entertaining, these late night productions are sketch
comedy's cutting-edge cousin that don't need a script or a set to deliver big laughs.
