About Coachella Valley Improv/Comedy Festival 2020

Improv groups, sketch groups and stand up comics are invited to submit an entry for the Coachella Valley Improv/Comedy Festival (formerly the Joshua Tree Improv/Comedy Festival.) All entries are welcome and will be screened and judged by a selection committee. The committee's official selections will perform at Coachella Valley Repertory, 68510 East Palm Canyon Drive in Cathedral City (adjacent to Palm Springs) on May 29-31, 2020. These performances will then be judged by a live audience to determine an overall winner. The overall festival winner will be offered a paid return engagement. Last year’s overall winner was the improv duo “redDoor,” who will be headlining Saturday night.
Coachella Valley Repertory has just invested three million dollars to properly renovate the old IMAX theater in Cathedral City into a state-of-the-art performance art venue. The extreme rake of the seating makes the 210 seat playhouse surprisingly intimate and ideal to showcase improv groups and stand up performances. CV Rep was voted “best live theater of the valley” by Desert Sun newspaper readers and has a loyal following of audience members. Its new location is in the burgeoning downtown entertainment district of Cathedral City, which includes the Mary Pickford Movie Theater as well as a casino and outdoor amphitheater, which are currently under construction.
Other events being planned for the festival include an opening reception, comedy and improvisation workshops, and many live performances and appearances from revered household names and up-and-coming stars.
