Fully improvised and filmed live, Naked in a Fishbowl is the unscripted sitcom and hit off-Broadway show that chronicles the lives of six women in New York City with hilarious, startling, and bare-naked honesty. Every live performance is broadcast online, resulting in a web series that has been watched over 1 million times in 80 countries, blurring the lines between theatre, television, and the web.
History & Buzz
Fishbowl premiered at the NY International Fringe Festival in 2007 and the cast was presented with the Outstanding Ensemble Award, hailed as the “brightest lights of the festival.” Since re-launching in 2010, this all-female comedy troupe has performed over 50 original “knockout” episodes that WCBS calls “Smart, honest, and definitely fearless.” At the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the company created six original episodes in six days and was listed among the “Best of the Fest.”

Improv Workshops & Classes
After many requests and much demand, Naked in a Fishbowl was thrilled to begin offering improv workshops and classes. Taught by the experienced ladies of Fishbowl, these workshops have been developed based on the tools we use to create a fully improvised show every week that doesn’t rely on the sketch/audience participation formula of other improv shows. This new approach to long-form improv is about finding not just the truth in comedy, but the comedy in the truth. It’s our hope that in addition to entertaining, Naked in a Fishbowl is used as a platform to encourage the growth of additional strong and confident women in the comedy world.
