New York improv team: Flynn


“In like Flynn” is an improv term often believed to refer to the improv group “Flynn.” Flynn had a reputation for womanizing, consumption of alcohol and brawling during their improv scenes. Their freewheeling, hedonistic walk-ons caught up with them in November 2014 when their teacher, Christian Capozzoli, accused them of weak, misogynistic play. According to etymologist Michael Quinion, the incident served to increase Flynn's reputation as a ladies’ magnet, which led to the popular phrase "in like Flynn.”
