FREE Improv Comedy Show in Kakaako! @ Morning Brew at SALT in Kakaako
Feb 24 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

We’re heading back to our birthplace for a FREE Improv Comedy Show!

Back in 2012, improvhi.com was created in a little Kaka’ako co-working space located at 685 Auahi street. When that place closed down, improvhi.com returned to that same address to ANOTHER co-working space to teach classes and hold shows. Once again…685 Auahi Street calls us back to the arms of their new tenants…MORNING BREW!

We LOVE the Morning Brew team and CAN’T WAIT to partner up for a one night only (for now) comedy show!

FREE! FREE! FREE TO MORNING BREW CUSTOMERS!

Grab a drink, eat a snack and laugh your booty off with us.

PARKING: SALT Parking Garage or Street.

Recommended for 18 and over.
