The 2017 Ottawa Improv Festival is here! After a sold-out run in 2016, we are back and bigger than ever.
Over four days, you'll see hilarious comedians from Toronto, Montreal, Chicago and Ottawa, raise some money for charity and celebrate spontaneous theatre!
We're delighted this year to take over Arts Court's Theatre and Studio, and very pleased to announce Dominion City as our beer sponsor.
Wednesday: On International Women's Day, we celebrate the comedic voices of women and non-binary folk while raising money for charity!
Thursday: On #supportlocal night, we showcase the wide variety of improv styles of Ottawa's community of performers!
Friday and Saturday: Our headliner nights, where we welcome top improvisers from other cities to show off their talents! http://ottawaimprovfestival.com/schedule/
Doors open each night at 6:30 p.m., with shows starting at 7 p.m. On Friday and Saturday, stay for special free late-night programming after 10 p.m.
This year's festival is produced by The Improv Embassy, Ottawa's only space dedicated to improv and sketch comedy.
