The Peoples Improv Theater is thrilled to present the 12th Annual INDIE-pendence Day Fest. The longest running Indie Improv Festival in NYC was originally created by Student Driver & hosted by The PIT.
GREENBERG! is composed of besties Isaac, Brielle, Sebastian, Chayenne, and Grace. At first crossing paths in the improv jam community, the group has gone on to do fun things like celebrate each other’s birthday’s, go do karaoke, hang out til 2am, etc. The group celebrates that friendship on-stage by challenging each other to take on characters & scenarios that push us out of our comfort zone!
The Artist Formerly Known As: CRUD!
A blend of classicly-trained actors, stand-up comics, and plain-old weirdo nerds, The Artist Formerly Known As: CRUD! will try not to laugh while performing a spokane. Nothing is off the table, but TAFKAC! sets have historically touched on themes such as queer commentary, merging families, and blind ambition. Come crud it up with us!
Basically Unemployed
The Understudies
Due to ridiculous circumstances, the entire cast who rehearsed the musical you came to see can’t make it. But don’t worry, The Understudies are here to fill in! You won’t even know the difference. Now what was that musical called again? Witness a team of improv comedians turn your audience suggestion into a full fledged musical with live accompaniment, original songs, characters, and dance numbers never before seen and never to be seen again.
Our goal is to foster community, play, and highlight some of the best Indie Improv from around the globe! It will feature Special Guests, Jams, and a Barbecue Picnic!
Spanning 2 days, the festival is your team’s chance to follow the fear, take the leap, and put yourselves in front of an audience! Teams that debuted at IndieFest have gone on to successful runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Off-Broadway, and more!
