Berlin’s longest running English-language longform improv team, GLB perform every 1st 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 the English Theatre Berlin 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.
“Exciting, a definite recommendation.”
“[GLB] does wonderfully inventive, highly intelligent improv. Comprised of individually skilled members, their chemistry and experience together creates truly dynamic and unique theatre. Their audience base is enthusiastic and loyal; and GLB never disappoints, delivering whimsical stories, cracked characters, cultural commentary, and huge laughs to eager crowds in Berlin. Simply put, their shows are electric- not to be missed.”
–Tess Degenstein, Space Janitors, Rapid Fire Theatre, Bad Dog Repertory Theatre
“In a city that is quickly gaining a reputation for its English comedy [GLB] is leading the way. With intelligent, quick-witted storytelling and a quirky, surprising cast, GLB is a joy to watch each and every show. You can’t even call them Berlin’s best kept comedy anymore. The word is out. And the audiences are laughing.”
–Mat Mailandt, Notorious
“[GLB] are one of the hottest improv outfits on the scene. Their obvious chemistry is fantastic to see and no doubt the product of years of honing their group mind. This is something people should see. If your sides aren’t hurting at the end of a GLB show, you’re either impervious to laughter or are significantly fitter than I am, which, frankly, no one is. A bunch of bloody legends, these guys are the dope. Drink. It. In… or regret it soon and for the rest of your life. They’re just so damned tight!”
