2020 festival lineup

We are thrilled to announce the lineup for the 2020 Countdown Improv Festival.

This year’s festival — which, due to public health concerns, will take place entirely online — is our biggest and best festival yet. Featuring 49 different trio, duo, and solo acts from 14 different states (plus the District of Columbia), the 2020 Countdown Improv Festival will take place from Wednesday, August 12 through Sunday, August 16. A full show and workshop schedule will be available in mid-July.
