About San Francisco Improv Festival 2018

The SF Improv Festival is in its 14th year and has over 30 slots to fill with (potentially *your*) fantastic improv to wow the good people of San Francisco. This year’s fest is taking place this fall - September 19th -23rd!

We have *two* theaters to run our shows in concurrently, at the home of indy theater in SF - Pianofight! This is our second year in the venue & it's perfect for the festival atmosphere we have been shooting for for the past several years.

Located in SF's Mid-Market area (right downtown by City Hall and Twitter HQ), it features a full bar and lounge & cabaret area, so you can mingle with fellow performers & audiences in between shows. And you can find the odd music or comedy act playing while you enjoy your drinks and food - yup - Pianofight also has a full kitchen. You practically never have to leave!

We're looking forward to seeing your applications!! Don't forget:
applications run from Valentines Day to Tax Day (Feb 14 - April 17) & work on a sliding scale. Check it out below - the earlier you apply, the cheaper it is!
