Sarasota Improv Festival

Two days of non-stop comedy! July 20 & 21, 2012 In the Goldstein Cabaret

Florida Studio Theatre (FST) Sarasota Improv Festival brings two-nights of comedy to Downtown Sarasota with 10 of the hottest groups on the Improv scene nationwide. Acts from all over the country will perform on the Cabaret stage in the festival that Sarasota Magazine called “high-energy” and the Sarasota Herald-Tribune called “hilarious.” The festival will also feature Improv workshops taught by the professional Improvisers attending the festival. This is a must-see event for anyone with a funny bone!

Each group will perform a 45-minute set over the course of the weekend. All groups are unique in performance and style, bringing different types of Improv shows to Sarasota: traditional Improv games, long-form comedy, short sketches and musical improv.
