Embark on a three-day event of unscripted comedy, shenanigans, and drama as The Orange County Improv Fest celebrates its annual event at The Frida Cinema!

The Orange County Improv Fest is an annual festival in which we feature outstanding and diverse improv teams in THREE talent-packed nights of unscripted comedy. Come any or all nights (June 13-15) to see improvised comedy in all shapes in sizes: including improvised musicals, melodramas, action, and straight-up silly games like those of “Whose Line is It Anyway” fame. In one sitting you will see teams from OC, LA, San Diego, and beyond! One ticket is good a whole night, and a ticket for each night is sold separately.

First held in 2013, OCIF was conceived to celebrate the growing and diverse improv community of Orange County, California. The largest improv event in Orange County, the OC Improv Fest is committed to the celebration and elevation of improvisation, as well as forging friendships across cities and states with diverse and open-minded performers. Come be a part of the fun!
