Improv Everywhere causes scenes of chaos and joy in public places. Created in August of 2001 by Charlie Todd, Improv Everywhere has executed over seventy missions involving thousands of undercover agents. Although many of these agents come from the improv and comedy community in New York City, their work defies easy classification. Most recently, Improv Everywhere executed a mission that gained them national attention when over 200 people froze, inexplicably, for five minutes in the middle of Grand Central Station, before unfreezing and going about their business as if nothing ever happened. The group has been wildly successful online, receiving over eleven million views on YouTube alone.
