CIF 2016 is riding hard into the stretch drive of this year’s festival! Its a big “Go Time” for the weekend as CIF’s presents 31 shows at 15 venues performed by 174 ensembles!!! That’s not a misprint! This is CIF’s record breaking year and this is CIF’s record breaking weekend! We’ve got so much small batch, premium, artisanal improv goodness to choose from it’s like running loose in Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods with a blank check!!

How to choose among so many? Remember, we’ve got 10 different artistic categories you can choose from! It’s easy to choose a show in that category you like and find one that fits your schedule. So come see a show!
