The following teams are a part of the Spectacles Improv Engine:

The Lobby

The Lobby is the founding team of the Spectacles Improv Engine. Founded in 2005, The Lobby performed no-holds-barred short-form improv in Glendora and Fontana before settling at STAGEStheatre in Fullerton. The Lobby is the Spectacles team that provides the quintessential improv show experience by performing both gimmicky improv games and quality short scenes, both shaped by audience suggestion.

The Lobby was named the best improv group in Orange County in both 2009 and 2010 on MyFoxLA's OC Hotlist.

Born in 2010, the Flyspace is one of the funniest improv teams in Orange County. Focusing more on high-tension scenes than wacky games, the Flyspace has a unique style that separates them from other improv troupes. "Alone they are mortals, but when their awesome powers unite, they are FLYSPACE!"

The Flyspace is home to the 2010 Improv Cup MVP, Tony Rey, the 2011 Improv Cup MVP, Ian Adams, and the 2012 Improv Cup MVP, Jill Tsai.

The Society

The Society sheds nearly all of the gimmicks and focus entirely on performing engaging, hilarious scenes.

Upcoming shows:


The IFL is the newest team in the Spectacles Improv Engine. See competitive shortform improv played as a sport. We're not just adding a couple fouls to a normal improv show, this is improv with managers, referees, play-by-play announcers, field reporters, player positions, stats, and playoffs.

Upcoming shows:

Laugh Chance

Laugh Chance can be best described as the Round Table of Comedy (King Arthurís, not the pizza place). Their sole purpose in life: bringing the funny. You will gasp as they amaze you with their wit and charm, and cry as they bring out emotions you never knew possible.

Gathered together from around the OC area in 2010, they quickly become one of Orange Countyís newest and brightest teams. Most of the players do double, even triple duty on other teams. Laugh Chance is where they all come together to bring you the best shows possible. There is nothing they canít do. When you roll Laugh Chance, youíll never lose.

You can find Laugh Chance on Facebook or follow them on Twitter @LaughChance.

Upcoming shows: Sep. 4, 2015 at 11:00 PM, and Sep. 18, 2015 at 11:00 PM

The Mechanicals

This band of merry players brings you a never before seen (and never seen again) Shakespearean play! Whether it ends in a wealth of weddings or a deluge of deaths, you can be sure it's always hilarious! Performances run approximately 45 minutes.
