ABOUT THE IMPROV SHOP:
"And I would really, over the long run, hope America would find some way to provide all of our citizens with extended families -- a large group of people they could call on for help."-Kurt Vonnegut
The above quote serves as the de facto mission statement of The Improv Shop. Founded in 2009, we're St. Louis' only improvisational comedy theater and training center.
Through locally raised, organic, group-oriented longform improvisation, we try to manufacture small families made up of people that were once strangers. Using the skills and techniques of Chicago-style improv, students in our program learn to succeed on stage while becoming better human beings off-stage.
We believe that improv training is a powerful and necessary tool for the working actor, a fun way to become a more confident public speaker, and an exciting means of self-expression.

ABOUT TEF POE:
Born and raised in the Pine Lawn neighborhood of Saint Louis, Missouri, Kareem Jackson has been honing his weaponry in the war for musical supremacy. Through his unwavering integrity, genuine rhymes and expansive delivery, Kareem - better known as Tef Poe - is proving to the musical world that he is the commander-in-chief.
Tef Poe encompasses and continues to perfect the artistry and performance skills necessary to go the distance in today's ever-changing musical climate. Originally building a reputation as one of St. Louis' elite battle, Tef has since risen through the ranks and positioned himself as a seasoned veteran. His solo projects "Glory To God," "The Redeemer," Money Never Sleeps", & latest release "War Machine" have been well received by the public, critics, and media outlets alike.
Tef has commanded large crowds opening for Chicago's Lupe Fiasco in addition to being featured in the SXSW Smoking Section Showcase. His hits "Show Stealers," "Crazy," and "Out The Kitchen" have successfully cut through the propaganda and reached the masses via radio play in multiple markets. In addition, Poe has been featured on major hip hop sites such as globalgrind.com, thesmokingsection.net, thisis50.com, rockthedub.com and several more.
Tef Poe continues to lead his own plan of attack working with artists such as Murphy Lee and Kyjuan of the St. Lunatics (Derrty Ent./Universal) and GLC (G.O.O.D. Music/Sony) as well as performing throughout the country. He is determined to win the battle and the war. For him, there is no other option aside from complete and total victory. That mindset propels him beyond commander-in-chief... to the War Machine.
