Across 4 days over 75 performers from across the globe will amaze with their spontaneity, quick wit and ability to make you laugh your socks off. Scenes, sketches, songs and stories will be made up on the spot from audience suggestions.

Troupe entertaining you for this hour:

Rawhide – Rawhide is a rough and tumble journey into the inner workings of species connectivity. Also known as real good two person long form improvisation. [TwoProv] Will Hines and Billy Merritt have performed together for decades, first with The Stepfathers in New York and currently with The Smokes in Los Angeles. They’ve been teaching at the Upright Citizens Brigade during that time. They’ve written a book together ‘Pirate, Robot, Ninja: An Improv Fable’. They’ve had long wonderful, nerd-like conversations about improv, teaching improv, and what makes for a perfect improv scene. Come watch that perfect scene take place.

World class improv teachers will also be delivering a full curriculum of classes throughout the festival.
