Attention comedy nerds! The 11th Annual Providence Improv Fest is happening this weekend, September 18-20. The three days of improv comedy will be held at 95 Empire, right next to AS220, in both the black box theater and the third floor performance space.
Among the groups performing are the Magnet Theatre Touring Company from New York City, ImprovBoston All Stars, and New York’s “North Coast” group, who perform an improvised set they call a “Hip H’Opera.” Improv groups from the Providence area will round off the line-up that begins on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Each individual show ranges from $5-$10, or a $40 Festival Pass that grants you admittance to every show all weekend.
The festival is also offering improv workshops throughout the weekend that are taught by the visiting performers and range from $15-$30, but a background in improv is required.
So, say “Yes, and,” this weekend, and prepare to laugh! Check out the complete line-up and schedule at www.providenceimprovfest.com.
