Brisbane Improv Festival
See Brisbane's funniest folks improvise their way through this four-day festival.
Laughs have been in short supply over the past year. Entertaining surprises have fallen into that category, too. But from Thursday, February 18–Sunday, February 21, giggles, guffaws and unexpected developments of the hilarious kind are all on the menu at the Brisbane Improv Festival.
For four days, you can tickle your funny bone while watching a heap of amusing folks — and, as you're chuckling along, you'll never know what'll happen next. That's one of the joys of improv, after all. A show can start out one way, veer off in a completely different direction, then end up with gags you've never even dreamed of.
It's a mix-and-match kind of lineup, so you can pick whatever suits your mood from the 20-show program. Doctor Who fans can check out an improvised version of the cult TV series, for instance, while storytelling, travelling bands, queer relationships and disagreements between friends all get a look in.
The whole festival takes place in Seven Hills, at the Ron Hurley Theatre and Seven Hills Hub, with the event run by Big Fork Theatre.
Fancy learning improv yourself? You can also book into a workshop on the topic.
