About San Francisco Improv Festival 2019

The SF Improv Festival is in its 15th year and has over 30 slots to fill with (hopefully *your*) fantastic improv to wow the good people of San Francisco. This year’s fest is taking place this fall - September 18th -21st!

We have *two* theaters we run our shows in concurrently, at the home of indy theater in SF - PianoFight! This is our third year in the venue & it's got an amazing festival vibe. Located in San Francisco’s Mid-Market area (right downtown in the heart of SF), it features a full bar and lounge & cabaret area, so you can mingle with fellow performers & audiences in between & after shows while you enjoy your drinks and food - yup - PianoFight also has a full kitchen. You practically never have to leave!

Don't forget: 
applications run from March 20th - May 24th & work on a sliding scale. Check it out below - the earlier you apply, the cheaper it is!

We're looking forward to seeing your applications!!
