BOX OFFICE

Be the first person to welcome our patrons to the theater each night! Box office responsibilities include selling tickets, answering the phone, and handling walk-in inquiries. Members of the box office staff should have a sunny disposition to greet and help patrons with any and all questions or concerns. The theater can get busy, so it is important that you are able to handle stress under pressure. Basic computer and iPad skills are also necessary to sell tickets. 

BARTENDER

ImprovBoston offers a wide variety of drinks and snacks at Gag's Bar (that's the name of the bar) and we are always looking for friendly people to serve them. Responsibilities include set up of the theater and lobby before shows as well as serving drinks and snacks to patrons. Applicants should be motivated individuals who will maintain and stock the bar during shows. 

TECH

Behind the scenes of a show can be just as important as what goes on on stage. ImprovBoston is always seeking motivated individuals to join our Tech Crew managing lights and sound during our shows. An interest in comedy and attention to detail is crucial in responding to light and sound cues during shows. Some previous tech experience is helpful, but not required. 


INTERNSHIPS

 

So… you want to be an intern. Here are some things you should know!

We offer internships in exchange for ImprovBoston Comedy School (IBCS) classes or college credit, depending on your program. Our most common internships are Floaters & Office interns, described below.

1. Floater Interns

Many of our IBCS interns become “Floaters,” which entails working with our Front of House crew one show-night per week for 8 weeks. These shifts are Wednesday-Friday evenings.

As a Floater, you are essentially assistant to the House Manager & our nightly staff, helping out with tasks as needed. Often including setting up & breaking down the theaters for shows, greeting & assisting patrons.

Being a Floater is a great way to be in the hub of the IB community and to get to know many members of the amazing ImprovBoston family. For these positions, we look for friendly, high-energy applicants with “Can-Do” attitudes.

2. Office Interns

We also have IBCS interns work two (2) 4hr-days per week for 8 weeks. These shifts are generally 11AM - 3PM or 3PM - 7PM, but can vary depending on your schedule and our needs.

Our office interns have the chance to get a feel for what working behind the scenes at a comedy theater is like. You will help our small, but mighty, office staff with general office administrative tasks, inventory organization, light handy-work  (like vacuuming or putting duct tape on a box. You know, handy-work!), and other weekly tasks.

Some of our rockstar interns have transitioned into a more specialized field (photography, graphic design, sales, etc.), but only after one session “working the office.”

*** ImprovBoston expects interns looking to work in exchange for an IBCS class to begin their internship about 2 weeks prior to the start of the session in which they wish to enroll.

*** Resume & interview will be required.
