About 16th Annual Providence Improv FestTHE 16TH ANNUAL PROVIDENCE IMPROV FEST!
[Providence, RI] – This September, the annual PROVIDENCE IMPROV FEST will be celebrating its sixteenth year! The FEST which started with 3 local troupes in 2004 now showcases over 40 of the best local and national acts in the improv comedy world. The FEST will bring back some FEST favorites from years past while introducing an exciting array of improv performers to beautiful Providence.
The FEST will run September 12-14, 2019 in the heart of Downtown Providence – once again appearing at AS220 Black Box (95 Empire Street), as well as on the AS220 Main Stage (115 Empire Street).
This festival was a joy from start to finish. Don't let the small size fool you- it is deliberately scheduled that way to maximize the audiences, who are truly knowledgeable and delighted to attend the shows. Our hosts were perfect. No shit, we would come back to Providence ANY TIME. The Providence Improv festival is a true gem and we are lifetime fans. - The Boys, Susan Messing and Rachel Mason
The FEST remains dedicated to showcasing a broad spectrum of comedic theater artists who excel at creating funny scenes, characters, and situations in the moment.
There will also be workshops led by nationally known improv instructors, as well as a variety of surprises that make the weekend full of laughs.
“Orange Tuxedo had such a good time in Providence! Great town, great improvisors, and most importantly, great people. We were treated warmly and regaled with Narragansett beer, even when Nerf darts were being fired at us in an improv jam.” - Carla and Craig Cackowski
The proximity of the spaces, the helpfulness of the staff and the appreciation of the audience makes the Providence Improv Festival one of my favorite festivals around. The line-up of shows and workshops are so well curated that it makes it difficult to decide what to see an do but whatever you choose you can't go wrong. If you have the chance to go to the festival, do it! - Will Luera
