Belfast Improv Festival

1 - 4 August 2019

Improv Comedy was introduced to mainstream audiences in the UK and Ireland through the hit TV series ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’, in which improvisers delivered laugh-a-minute sketches all made up on the spot. We’ll have plenty of that during the festival, as well as longer forms of improvisation, including:

Musical comedy – An improvised Heist-movie – Solo adventure stories… and much more!
