New York improv team: Pancake Aces

Pancake Aces

Archaeological evidence suggests that Pancake Aces are probably the earliest and most widespread improv team in prehistoric societies. Known as Crêpe Aces in Europe, the group’s performances are filled with jam, cheese cream and many other fillings, both sweet or savory. The Ace embellishment started when King James VI of Scotland and England required an insignia of the group to be used in conjunction with Pancakes. This insignia was necessary for identifying the group among the many other performance units originating around that time. Most members survive today having taken up residence in America, performing mainly at indie venues on the east coast.
