What is the Improv Cup?

The Improv Cup is entering its sixth year, and will take place on November 13 and 14 at STAGEStheatre in Fullerton, CA.

The Cup is a unique short-form improv festival that is about bringing together the growing improv community. Improvisers are randomly assigned onto teams with other players, building lasting bonds of fellowship while navigating a tournament that requires that they operate and entertain as a team in order to succeed.

By participating, promoting, or attending The Improv Cup every year, you ensure that every cent of every ticket sold go directly to The Painted Turtle camp, a wonderful place that provides a summer camp experience for seriously ill children. Attendance to the camp is absolutely free to the campers and their families.


Every donation helps make The Improv Cup a better event and helps raise more money for The Painted Turtle camps.
