ABOUT US

The Ponies is a short-form improv group based out of Talking Horse Productions in Columbia, Missouri. 

Our crew comes from different backgrounds and careers, all united by our love of making people laugh through improv comedy. We specialize in short-form games similar in style to the television show, "Whose Line is it Anyway." Every thing we do is made up on- the-spot for a unique show that's NEVER the same twice!
