Formed in 1986, The Viola Question is Yale's youngest and most fit comedy group. Renowned for its quick wit, comedic daring, and vast array of original games, the 'VQ' has awed audiences across the nation with its devastatingly clever combination of short- and long-form improv.
Members of The Viola Question have recently performed with Tina Fey (Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock), Rachel Dratch (Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock), Tim Meadows (Saturday Night Live), Stephen Colbert (The Daily Show, The Colbert Report), Gilbert Gottfried (The Aristocrats), Julia Roberts (Mona Lisa Smile) and Kevin Nealon (Saturday Night Live, Weeds).
Since its founding, The Viola Question has performed at many notable venues, including The Second City Chicago, Atlantic City, The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre of New York, Caroline's of New York, Standup NY, The Comic Strip, ComedySportz, Level 3 Communications (A Fortune 500 Company), ImprovOlympics, Providence's Perishable Theater, and Branford College at Yale University.
