Whether you are a seasoned improv veteran, or it is literally your first time, we have a workshop for you. The Baltimore Improv Festival showcases a variety of local, regional, and nationally-known improv comedy groups in shows and workshops in Baltimore. Proceeds from comedy show ticket sales will fund BIG's artistic mission, compensate guest instructors, and will also help cover the cost of future Baltimore Improv Festival runs. The Baltimore Improv Festival is produced by the Baltimore Improv Group, a non-profit 501(c)(3) group dedicated to advancing the art and appreciation of improvisational theater in the greater Baltimore community through a dynamic program of performance, instruction, and outreach. BIG teams performed at the Del Close Marathon, NYC Improv Festival, Chicago Improv Festival, Out of Bounds Comedy Festival in Austin, the Atlanta Improv Festival, the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival (formerly Dirty South), the Philadelphia Improv Festival, the DC Comedy Fest, and Duofest. BIG produces 100+ public and private performances in and around Baltimore, as well as teaching classes and workshops for kids, teens and adults throughout the year.
