The Improv Resource Center was founded as a website and chat room in 1996 by Kevin Mullaney, then a performer and teacher at the Improv Olympic in Chicago. Over the years it has grown in size with forums boasting over 800,000 posts, an improv wiki, and the Improv Resource Center Podcast.

In 2016, the Improv Resource Center became an LLC and rented a rehearsal studio in the Ravenswood neighborhood of Chicago. The IRC now offers classes in improvisation and sketch comedy which use the Game of the Scene as it's guiding principle.
