Welcome to the online home of One Group Mind!
We are a union of improvisers, teams, schools, and theaters dedicated to comedy education using the art of long form improvisation!
Our alumni have continued successful careers on such shows as The Office, Community, Arrested Development, Saturday Night Live, Reno 911!, the Jimmy Kimmel Show, ABC Family's Huge, The Mindy Project, Man Seeking Woman, Last Man on Earth, and hosting MTV's Spring Break. They have continued successful careers as Second City Main Stage Performers, Artistic Directors of major improv theaters in New York, Directors of Organizing in the Screen Actor's Guild, Resident Company Members of major Stage Equity Theaters, and commercial spokespeople for national commercial brands.
With our roots dating back to the Titanic Players on the Northwestern University campus in 1994, One Group Mind is one of the largest improvisation and performance organizations in the country. We've sponsored collegiate and professional improv organizations in Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, New York, California, and Florida.
Although we specialize in improvised theater, we also produce performances that are scripted, broadcast, and filmed.
We have seen a great deal of organization success as a result of our 4 year training and performance program. In 2008 and 2010, our collegiate program, The Titanic Players, took home the first place trophy for the College Improv Tournament against a field that included over 70 teams from across the country.
In 2015, our professional program established The Comedy Clubhouse in Chicago, becoming the first institution to purchase their own building.
