Baltimore Improv Festival

Improv is All We Do

The Baltimore Improv Festival is an event 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.

As of 2019, our annual Baltimore Improv Festival brings  over 400 performers in 100+ comedy teams to the mid-atlantic region. In 2019,  visitors are from 25+ cities, 15 states, 2 countries, and performed in 45 shows over 7 days. We've bringing you one of the largest improv festivals on the east coast.

The Baltimore Improv Festival showcases a variety of local, regional, and nationally-known improv comedy groups in shows and workshops in Baltimore City.

​Proceeds from comedy shows ticket sales will fund BIG's artistic mission, compensate guest instructors, and will also help cover the cost of future Baltimore Improv Festival runs.

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 comedy events  in and around Baltimore. BIG teaching classes and workshops for kids, teens and adults throughout the year.
