BIG's mainstage troupe performs long form improv where entire dramatic and comedic plays are invented on the spot. BIG's Few Bricks Shy is an ensemble comedy troupe performing the short-form style of improv, incorporating short scenes and games based on suggestions solicited from the audience throughout the show. The format is similar to the popular TV show "Whose Line Is It, Anyway?".
