YUM! produces an improvised show inspired by the cast’s authentic and deeply personal monologues, often eliciting the relieving humour in revealing truthful situations everyone can relate to but most people don’t talk about in public. As one of Leela’s performing improv ensembles, they embody Leela‘s philosophy of truthful artistic play.

Their current format has been performed around San Francisco since May 2015, and is directed by Christopher DeJong. They recently took their show to the Antelope Valley Improv Comedy Festival in Lancaster, CA, SF Sketchfest, and the Hollywood Improv Festival.
