About this event:
73 improv teams compete for your laughs.
The eighth annual Fighting Improv Smackdown Tournament — otherwise known as FIST — pits quick-witted three-person teams against each other in a fierce battle for audience laughs and all-out comedy supremacy. This year’s competitors include an all-puppet team, a blues-music-based group and an ensemble whose entire show is based on celebrity tweets.
But you’re the ultimate winner — not only do you get to enjoy the best
long-form improv the competitors have to offer, but you also get to vote via secret ballot
for who should move on and enjoy a bonus headliner set by a Washington Improv Theater company ensemble.
Just $12 for the preliminary matches and $15 for the finals.
