About the Troupe
The first evidence of Narcissists Anonymous was found on the German frontier in an ancient Roman outpost, where a series of carvings foretold the coming of six improvisatores who, chosen by the gods themselves, crafted what is known today as Hue-Mor, or Improv Comedy.
These six faceless foremasters decreed that when any one of the group was deemed “too unfunny” to continue, he would select an apprentice.
This tradition carried on in secret for two millenia, until finally being discovered in San Francisco.
Now: the six modern masters have chosen to bring their cult into the light and shed their Anonymity, and share their knowlede of Hue-Mor with the world.
George Carlin, Rodney Dangerfield, Richard Pryor, Bill Hicks, Buddy Hackett, Aristotle, Mark Twain, Abelard, Jesus of Nazareth, Moses the Prince of Egypt*, Vishnu, Homer, Anaxagoras, Bugs Bunny, Doug Funny, Frazier, Saturday Night Live, MadTV, Mother Courage**, and President William H Taft have all yearned to join the Narcissists, but were sternly denied apprenticeships.
If you wish to consult the Oracle of Hue-Mor to book an improv show in the San Francisco Bay Area or beyond (or to shower the Narcissists with praise), please contact plando@NAimprov.com or sacrifice a rabbit on the northeast side of Telegraph Hill on a waning moon of an odd month***.
