Improv Fest Ireland

Hello to all Improv Fest Ireland friends and community,

For the past four years each November we have brought you Ireland’s only dedicated festival of Improvised Theatre & Comedy.  Each year we host a wealth of talent from Ireland and around the world. Our little festival has gone from strength to strength and last year we were delighted to host performers from 13 countries performing in 29 shows throughout the week.  We were also delighted to produce sold out workshops and introduce new and existing audiences, who visited from around the world, to the amazing artform that is Improv.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the Artists, Audiences, & Volunteers that took part in the festivals and infused them with energy!

Improv Fest Ireland are taking a festival break in 2017.  We have decided to use the extra time and energy to focus on the 2018 festival which will mark the 5th Improv Fest Ireland. We are already buzzing with the excitement for that!

We will continue to keep you updated on weekly improv happenings around the country in Ireland via the Facebook page, and are delighted to see that the scene is thriving.

We, the organisers, have a bunch of exciting projects on our plates for 2017 but we hope to mark the summer with an IFI event. Please stay tuned to our social media and website for updates!

Look out for details of the 2018 festival in the first half of 2017!

See you soon!

All the best

Neil Curran & Órla Mc Govern

Co-Directors, Improv Fest Ireland
