The Wire

"Attend a Stranger Than Fiction show and you're assured of seeing something that has never been done before. You might even help in its creation."


The Hippo

"Comedy and theatre collide on one stage with Stranger Than Fiction, a NH-based improv comedy troupe that's been getting a steady following since its founding."


The Keene Sentinal

"Look out, cast of "Whose Line Is It Anyway," Stranger Than Fiction is catching up, offering up a more sophisticated brand of improv right here in good ol' New Hampshire."


Jeanné McCartin

"It is comedy without a net; walking the high-wire with all the thrills and potential splats that infers; weird, screwball and curious. Like a box o’ chocolates, sometimes it’s sweet caramel, others it’s nuts. Give it a go."

Camprov is a volunteer-run international comedy retreat and festival hosted by Stranger Than Fiction. It's an adult summer camp for improv! The retreat will celebrate its fifth gathering when we next convene. In the past, we have hosted illustrious improv educators like Jill Bernard, and Asaf Ronen. Troupes from all over the United States and the globe are invited to come to this incredible, immersive weekend of fun and education!



We are currently looking for a location to host our Camprov experience, post pandemic!


We are looking for a camp in the New England area that would be available in the off-season September or October. In the past we have rented campgrounds with enough beds to accommodate for 50+ improvisers. A stage would be a welcomed feature, but mostly we just need a handful of common areas so that we can hold small group lessons. We also require the camp to be staffed with kitchen attendants to provide meals for Friday evening, all day Saturday, and breakfast Sunday morning. Unfortunately we can not provide any further details or pricing until we have secured a venue for our next Camprov.


Please contact us through email by pressing the button below if you can recommend any potential areas we can rent for camprov, or if you would care to join us as an educator.
