The Winnipeg if... Improv Festival is almost here! It runs Oct 11th to Oct 15th and it is the best time in Winnipeg for Improv (plus sketch comedy and stand-up comedy and then even more improv).

The Winnipeg if... Improv Festival will be flying in some amazing guests performers from Seattle, Los Angeles, Montreal, Edmonton, Toronto, Port Coquitlam and Winnipeg (well, the guests from Winnipeg will maybe take the bus).

We will showcasing Improvisation as well as collaboration withSketch Comedy and Stand-up Comedy. Not only will we be showcasing some great out of town improv shows, we also also invent some improv shows of our own. We will be creating a Festival Ensemble of players, as well as a Local Ensemble of players and aSketch Ensemble of players. What does this mean? It means we will be making up some amazing new improv and hilarious new sketch comedy. The improv ensembles will be directed by none other than Randy Dixon (Seattle's Unexpected Productions) and the Sketch ensemble will be directed by Kevin McDonald (The Kids in the Hall). You will also get to see some stand-up and sketch comedy from Mark Little and Andrew Bush (of Picnicface fame!)

We will be kicking off the entire festival with our FREE SAMPLER SHOW on TUE, OCT 11th at 8PM where you can sample all the amazing improv and comedy that will be featured all week. The Sampler show will be at the Albert Street Cocktail Company (91 Albert Street) So you can sample great improv and fancy cocktails!
