Below are brief descriptions of our headliners and the full festival schedule More detailed information is at https://www.ifcincy.com/performers

Working Title (Atlanta, GA):  First performed in 2010, this show has been honed through two European tours, a few festival appearances, and running regularly at Dad’s Garage Theatre in Atlanta. Amber Nash (of FXX’s “Archer”) and Kevin Gillese (Dad’s Garage Artistic Director) create a screenplay for the audience, with one player filling the role of the main character and the other improviser playing all other characters. Thursday 9:30 and Friday 9:30

Fightmaster and Friends (Chicago, IL) The return of this Cincinnati native who performed at the first IF Cincy, moved to Chicago, Amsterdam, and back to Chicago playing on some of the biggest and most prestigious improv venues in the world! She is hand-picking a team from the friends she has made playing on Second CIty’s Mainstage show. Thursday 7:30 and Friday  9:30

Broke Gravy (Portland, OR): Broke Gravy is a Portland-based improv group that mixes the unique experiences of their audience with narrative, relationship, and the unexpected to create a show that is always surprising and new. Sometimes they ask you questions. Sometimes you ask THEM questions. Every time they’ll discover something that explores humor, humanity, and truth. Friday 9:30 and Saturday 7:30

The Bearded Company (Minneapolis, MN):  Join an entirely improvised fantasy adventure where fates are decided by rolling actual 20-sided dice. Watch as they fight dragons and make their way through dungeons. Nerd or not, there’s something for everyone. Friday 7:30 and Saturday 9:30
