OFF THE WALL has been delighting audiences inSouthern California since 1975.  Founded by DeVera Marcus and first produced by Norman Marcus, they first spread their wings at a small dance studio near a hamburger stand in West Hollywood.

In 1978, OFF THE WALL starred in their own late night TV pilot for ABC, called Completely Off The Wall, guest starring John Ritter. In 1980, OFF THE WALL was invited to be the resident company at the Improvisation in Hollywood and played there for fourteen years.  Among former members and illustrious guests are Robin Williams, Chevy Chase, Jim Belushi, George Wendt, and John Ritter.  Michael Feinstein was the group’s piano player for several years.

Ever since their inception, the group has garnered accolades from critics and audiences alike, and group members have appeared collectively in thousands of movies, television episodes and commercials, and written scripts for familiar TV shows and unfamiliar feature films.

OFF THE WALL, which is currently the longest-continuously-running all improv ensemble, perhaps in the world, entertained an international audience at theEdinburgh Fringe Festival 2000 in Scotland. They are also much in demand for corporate parties, fund-raisers, and events.

They currently play at Second City Hollywood and atThe Westside Comedy Theater, situated a mere thousand feet from the Pacific Ocean in Santa Monica.
