Ireland's Original International Festival of Improvised Theatre & Comedy


What is improv?

Improv/Improvisation is an art form where performers create scenes, stories and characters in the moment live in front of an audience. There is no script, no planning and no safety net! Modern Improvisational theatre includes a wide spectrum of performances - from fast-paced comedic 'shortform', to silent shows, to improvised puppet performances, to audience-inspired concepts, to musicals to full length improvised plays. This dynamic art form takes theatre and comedy to a whole new level - one that has audiences on the edge of their seats!




All workshops are now on general sale! We have a packed schedule and, for the first time at Improv Fest Ireland, some workshops that lead to a main stage performance! Check out the schedule now.

Can you volunteer?

We need volunteers to help us during, and in the run up to, the festival in December. Are you able to help us out?
