GLB – Improv Comedy

GLB bring their show to the ETB | IPAC stage for a behemoth evening of improvised scenes weaved together with incomparable timing and gut-wrenching laughter.


Plus, they’re bringing some of their friends along!


Pretty much anything can happen, and it’s all made up before your very eyes by some of the best improvisers this city has to offer.


GLB is Berlin’s longest running English-language longform improv team. They perform every 1st & 3rd Friday at the Comedy Café Berlin. Formed in 2013 as Good Luck, Barbara, GLB is one of the first teams to bring North American-style longform improv to the German Hauptstadt, and has been performing continuously since then – from claustrophobic basement bars to ETB | IPAC here in Berlin, and the massive Del Close Marathon in New York City and SlapDash in London. GLB members teach improv through The CCB Training School and have trained a new generation of fantastic improvisers right here in Berlin. They are Nicole Ratjen, Josh Telson and Noah Telson.


Improv Comedy Showcase

Hosted by GLB (formerly known as Good Luck, Barbara), featuring Berlin’s favorite improv comedy teams and presenting the very best of English-language improv in the German capital.

Rollercoasters is Berlin’s first and only musical improv group. Formed in 2017, the international cast has played a number of sold-out shows at venues across Berlin. Inspired by an audience suggestion, they create a full-length narrative musical replete with improvised songs, masterful acting and top-class comedy.

Cat Video is a German-Australian improv comedy duo. Their style might best be described as grounded insanity. They enjoy a slow burn just as much as a quick laugh. Peter and Jakob combine depth and hilarity in their characters to create wonderfully strange moments out of thin air.
