“Good Scene!” is an improv jam hosted by Judith, New York’s premiere all-gay-male comedy team, where the audience shouts “GOOD SCENE!” at the end of every scene. Every scene is a two-person scene so you get plenty of stage-time and the opportunity to do some really great scenework. It’s very supportive and very silly.
Come! We’d love to have you do improv and shout things!
