SCHEDULE


The Winnipeg IF... Improv Festival returns for the 15th time. This year we bring back some favourites and some new players that will blow your mind. The reason we know that they will blow your mind is that they have blown ours. You see, we at the Improv Festival have traveled the world and have performed with some of the very best improvisers on the planet. It is our mission to bring these amazing acts to Winnipeg for our local audiences to enjoy.

THE FESTIVAL SAMPLER PLATTER

Stephen and Lee from CRUMBS host the opening show of the Winnipeg Improv Festival by doing scenes with out of town guests and local players in this Improv Festival tradition. The Festival Sampler show at the King's Head pub is a part of the ongoing Free Laughs Comedy Series that puts on free live comedy shows at the King's Head every Tuesday night. The sampler is exactly that, a free show that lets the audience catch a glimpse and “sample” the improv styles of the guests that are coming to play in Winnipeg at the festival. Kick back, enjoy a beverage and a snack while the experts entertain you.
King's Head Pub, 120 King St.  |  9 p.m.  |  Free

THE DUNGEONS & DRAGONS IMPROV SHOW

This improv show is a hit, a “line up around the block” and a “sold out run of shows” kind of hit for the Winnipeg International Fringe Festival. The show is based on the much-loved game of Dungeons & Dragons, which is a role playing game and just happens to be a perfect fit for improv. This show has giant dice, amazing costumes and hilarity. Did we mention the blood yet? This show has quite the following, so you had better show up in full costume as to not look like an outsider. But don’t worry, you don’t have to be a lover of D&D to enjoy the show… but it helps.

The French vs English Improv Show 


This show was first brought to a stage at the King's Head to a standing room only audience. The night and improv battle was such a success that we've decided that the world needs to see it again.
