The Peoples Improv Theater is proud to announce the first annual New York City Improv Festival!
Over the past fifteen years the improv community in New York City has grown from humble beginnings to one of the premiere cities for improvisation and sketch comedy. With three long-form improv theaters boasting some of the best improvisers and sketch performers in the country, our local improv community offers a uniquely diverse and exciting comedy scene featuring a wide variety of comedic styles and philosophies. To showcase this, the New York City Improv Festival was created. It will be a festival that not only celebrates this diversity of talent but also fosters a link between improvisers in New York City with improvisers from all over the world, as well as members of the entertainment industry at large.
We invite all improvisers and improv groups in NYC and the world to take part in the vibrancy and excitement that only New York City can offer in a comfortable and nurturing atmosphere at The Peoples Improv Theater.
