The Peoples Improv Theater was founded by Ali Reza Farahnakian in 2002, in a small blackbox theater located at 154 W29th Street.
After outgrowing its original home, The PIT moved to 123 E24th Street on December 31, 2010, opening up the PIT Striker & PIT Underground theaters. In 2015 the original PIT theater on W29th St was renamed The PIT Loft and officially became the third theater at The PIT.
The PIT boasts a proud history of community through comedy. Check out some of the faces who got their start in our classes & on our stages:
