|STRAY is a group of improvisers who play in a theatrical, narrative style that was developed in Seattle, honed in Europe, and blended in New York. Stray’s unique approach creates spontaneous theatre that is comedic, dramatic, or abstract, sometimes all at once.

Parachute is Conard High School's (West Hartord) long-form improv comedy troupe. They've been practicing and performing since late 2010.
|Sea Tea Improv officially burst onto the comedy scene on April Fool’s Day, 2009, and hasn’t sat down since. The troupe of eleven players, trained by Hartford Stage Company and the Upright Citizens Brigade, dazzles Hartford and beyond on a regular basis with their witty, raucous interpretations of audience suggestions.||Horse Lincoln is the only improv group at UConn that is based solely on longform improvisation. Consisting of just undergrads from UConn, Horse Lincoln has won several improv awards, including being named as the 2008-2009 CT cage match champions.|
