If you want inexpensive yet excellent entertainment while visiting San Francisco, consider checking out BATS Improv at Fort Mason. The show is delightful and entertaining and completely unexpected. As you enter the casual, intimate setting you notice the lack of rules and pretense as you...More

Activity I identified before visiting San Francisco that I could do with my teen daughter at night. Funny and very creative! A great way to spend an evening.

I love improv. I love the exchange between the audience and actors. I love the crazy stories resulting from the exchange. BATS Improv "Service Please: An Improvised Hotel Farc" lacked both ingredients. First, the exchanges between the BATS actors and audience were short four questions...More

In my last of the Foundation classes, it's been a great experience and challenging. Gets me out of my comfort zone.

In my opinion, BATS is the best improvised theater company in the Bay Area. The cast members are amazing storytellers -- I laughed and cried as an audience member on the same night.

Attended a performance where the audience was asked to text suggestions which appeared on the screen on the stage. The topic was the high price of housing in San Francisco. The performance started out well but morphed into an unfunny bit which even ended with...More

Not your usual comedy or improv but great fun anyway. When we went it was a competition among two teams who did different types of scenes with suggestions from the audience.

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
