The LA Indie Improv Festival: thirteen hours, five stages, 175+ improv teams, zero dollar admission.
The indie improv scene is exploding in Los Angeles. With 60+ weekly and monthly shows and hundreds of teams, our city is brimming with talent. New generations of comedic minds are breaking ground in black boxes and tucked-away stages every day of the week. The LA Indie Improv Festival is a celebration of these comedic voices, and a means for them to connect with each other over memorial day weekend in LA.
The LA Indie Improv Festival was founded by some of LA’s independent improv show runners and has grown rapidly in its 5 years of existence. It’s free of charge. It’s a party.
The LAIIF is the crown jewel in a year-long calendar of fun organized by the LAIIF steering committee. Take a look at our calendar to see more events like dance parties, panel discussions with comedians you know and love, and comedy shows throughout the year.
We run on donations because that’s how the best things in life are run. 100% of donations go into the festival to fund theaters, food, drinks, promotional materials, original artwork, and whatever else we can do to make this a true, evolving, and growing celebration of LA’s comedic voices.
