Yes, the Ottawa Improv Festival is coming back! Featuring performances over three days from April 14 to 16 at the awesome Arts Court studio space. We’re lining up some pretty awesome local and national talent to show you some of the best of improvised comedy. We’ll also have workshops for those who have never tried improv before, and those who want to hone their skills with some seasoned performers — plus fun late-night programming and more!

The 2016 Ottawa Improv Festival is run by the directors of Experimental Farm Theatre. The team now runs The Improv Embassy, a new space for Ottawa improv classes and shows.
