Ottawa Improv Festival


The 2017 Ottawa Improv Festival is returning to Arts Court! After a sold-out festival in 2016, Improvfest is back and bigger than ever. Over four days, you’ll see hilarious comedians from Toronto, Montreal, Chicago and Ottawa. The festival raises money for charity and celebrates spontaneous theatre.

Wednesday: Shelarious Vol. III. On International Women’s Day, we celebrate the comedic voices of women and non-binary folk and raise money for a good cause.

Thursday: #supportlocal. Check out nearly every improv team Ottawa has to offer and dive into our supportive community.

Friday and Saturday: The Headliners. See amazing featured acts, from an improvised action-movie to a duo of Second City vets.
