Burnside: 

Burnside is a Harold Improv team performing at The Improv Shop in St. Louis, MO.  Burnside was founded in January of 2015 after an audition process brought this group of performers together. Coached by Andy Sloey, Burnside performs multiple times a month on Improv Shop's Harold Night. Burnside was selected for The St. Louis Compass Improv Festival in 2015 and 2016 and the 2016 Detroit Improv Festival.

Each Burnside performance showcases the joy, love, and commitment each member brings to the team. With an emphasis on group mind and agreement, unique themes based on one audience suggestion are explored. Every member of Burnside plays with belief that improv is at its best when we set our own egos and agendas aside and do everything in our power to make our teammates look brilliant. Every member of Burnside is a graduate of the Improv Shop longform improv training center in St. Louis, MO and many of them are coaches and instructors.
