Speak of the Devil...
They say you'd best stay away from the ghost town of Brimstone. But this group of strangers find themselves snowed in by the blizzard of the century. They say no one rides through Brimstone and lives to tell about it. So, what is going to do these outlaws in? The dark secrets they harbor? Or, the unholy secrets of this town? Hell just froze over...and there ain't no fire big enough to burn Brimstone.

"Nobody's bending genres in narrative improv like the Beards. Some of the best, most committed performances I've seen onstage in LA. Come for the weirdness, stay for the talent."

sweet - Timothy Meyer


"An absolute MUST-SEE! Stellar cast, brilliant concept, direction and execution! Genuine chills and guaranteed laughs. You won't want the story to end. So - you'll keep coming back each week to see what unfolds next time for the hapless inhabitants of Brimstone! A gift to fans of improv, horror and comedy."

sweet - Susan Deming


"Dark and wicked and wonderful. Western meets horror and its a match made in Hell. Terrific acting and a real feeling of being stuck in a place you would never want to be stuck in for reals! Go!"

"Brimstone is not your ordinary improv show. This western/horror mashup combines inventive staging with great acting to create a compelling story that elicits a strong reaction from the audience. If you are looking for a way to celebrate the spooky season; go see Brimstone."

"I'm new to the world of Improve and have seen Brimstone 3 times at the Impro Studio. It is one of a kind, mixing improve comedy and the horror/western genre. The improve actors are at the top of the game a deliver every week with a show that is funny, scary, and brilliantly acted."

sweet - Derek Manzella


"One of my favorite improvised shows. Committed cast, dark theme, great light work, complex story lines."

sweet - Ben Gilly


"Every aspect of this show is excellent and not at all what so many would expect of improvisation. The acting performances are so connected, committed and strong that one could truly believe the entire play is scripted. Highly recommended for anybody who enjoys suspenseful plots and likes to feel scared without too much gore. The perfect thing to do this Halloween season."

sweet - Claudia Zie


"You have not seen an improv show like this. The use of lighting and technical effects are seamlessly integrated into the show to create a genuinely terrifying effect! The Beards have always been good at Westerns and Horror, and when they combine their expertise and marry it to a technical set-up that is much an improvisation as the actors on stage, it creates something you really have to come and see. Other improv companies should be taking notes. This is how it's done!"

sweet - Ian Carroll


"The Bearded Company really scared the crap out of me with this one. The premise of this improvised show is pretty much that you meet some Western type people who've wandered into Brimstone, a cursed town. We get to know them, and then things start getting strange. The manipulation of the lights and music, and the great timing the cast had with each other - had my skin crawling. I left a little more afraid of what might be lurking in the shadows."

sweet - Lissette Jean-Marie


"Holy crap, do I love this show. It's a fantastic marriage of western and horror. And because of the dim lighting used in the show, your other senses will jump in to help tell the story. Each episode is set in the town of Brimstone, which has a history of horrible things always taking place. Some would say "unexplainable," but in my experience, those people don't believe in the Devil."

sweet - Trent Trail


""Brimstone" is the scariest campfire story ever told, performed in shadows and candlelight, punctuated by silence and screams, against the backdrop of a howling wind and raging snowstorm and brought to life by expert improvisers who craft a unique play each performance within the framework of an abandoned town with a terrifying past somewhere in the Old West. The cast creates sympathetic characters before plunging them into a world of dread and approaching doom, with the doom being different with each new audience's suggestion. Some say Brimstone was done in by poison, witches or an Indian curse. Your audience will hear differently. It's the best manifestation of horror I've ever seen on a stage."
