About

Our Philosophy

 Build and create the harmonious world we imagine is possible.  Value people over achievements.  Commit to continuous improvement.  

We think we stand out from other theatre companies as a group who fosters a harmonious, safe environment in which to explore our passion for performing.  We all signed a mutual respect, no-gossip policy when we formed the company in early 2018, and we are committed to building each other up through supportive collaboration.  The Artistic Director is highly open to feedback from all actors and staff and all company members are encouraged to voice their ideas.  This open-door, respect-driven company environment leads to happy people who recognize their own worth and have the confidence onstage to make amazing things happen.  The result is laughter that makes you cry.

The Exuberants are all “undiscovered” long-form trained actors and improvisers who reside in New York City.  We have all spent many long hours and many dollars at UCB and PIT improv schools and in various universities around the world in conservatory, BFA, and MFA theatre/acting programs.  Each and every member of The Exuberants is an entrepreneur, taking on financial risk to pursue the dream he/she/they imagine is possible.

It is likely that some of our performers will go on to successful film, television, and Broadway careers, but we believe that some of the most fulfilling experiences they will ever have as actors will be Sunday nights at 6pm when The Exuberants perform and on Tuesday nights when The Exuberants rehearse.

Our Mission

Help theatre-going audiences celebrate the high points of life with improv comedy.  Provide FREE touring improv comedy shows to those who can’t get to the theatre often.  Create a vibrant community of actors who control their own artistic destinies.

Act Social: Sometimes you Gotta Improvise to Compromise

PLEASE JOIN OUR MAILING LIST AT: http://eepurl.com/dKff7k

Psychologist Barbara Tint, famed improviser Colin Mochrie of “Whose Line is it, Anyway?”, and filmmaker Sean A. Mulvihill are going to Capitol Hill and the United Nations to convince our leaders to use improvisation for conflict resolution.

Improv and Drama therapy have been shown to be successful in:

Couples’ counseling
Support groups
Refugee communities
and diplomatic negotiations

Isn’t it time our leaders gave improv a try?

We’ve already got some great footage…soon we’ll be asking for your financial support to finish this film.

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:

Sean Mulvihill: Hi, I’m Sean Mulvihill. A few years ago, I was involved in making a film with Eckhart Tolle. We wanted to help people become happier in their lives.

Eckhart Tolle: Allowing this moment to be as it is, that takes you deeper into yourself and you may notice, there’s a certain peace in the background.

Sean Mulvihill: Now there’s still a lot of people not being friendly in the now, maybe it’s time to make a new film that will teach people to solve real life problems while still being peaceful. I’m going to need the help of someone that has the power to transcend demographics and reach people from all walks of life.

Colin Mochrie: I’m Colin Mochrie. I’m from Toronto. I’m an improviser. Why are we stopping at countries? Why don’t we save the world?

Speaker 4: Please welcome Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood.

Sean Mulvihill: Improv, you might say, “How can improv help heal the world?”

Barbara Tint: I’ve been using improv methods and principles for dealing with conflict and conflict resolution for almost 10 years.

Colin Mochrie: The two basic rules are things we don’t do in real life, which are listening and accepting other people’s ideas and working with them.

Barbara Tint: Improvisation is fundamentally about listening.

Sean Mulvihill: Would you come with us to help some people resolve some conflicts using improv? Conflict is a natural part of life but it doesn’t have to be violent. It doesn’t have to ruin relationships. We’re headed to Washington DC to teach politicians how to improvise for compromise. Improv and drama therapy have been shown to be effective in lots of situations. Isn’t it time where our leaders gave improv a try?
