We – Fabian und Macro – are passionate about improvisation and feel that more people should benefit from it.
We're improvisers ourselves, and have been for a long time: Fabian since 2006, Macro since 2009. In 2019, with the help of the Facebook improv community, we started YesTicket to support improv groups and to win over an even broader audience for the art of improvisation.
