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.


Space Station Awesome
We are a New York City based Long form improv team that specializes in all things AWESOME!!!


Jed&Jo are a two-prov team playing in, out, and around the box. We’re old enough to know better, but we still don’t.


Learners Permit
Learners Permit begins with two suggestions from the crowd. Then, the players expand the worlds with interconnected stories, traveling back and forth through time and space, playing different characters in crazy situations for 20 minutes straight.
Learners Permit comes from Improvolution (school of Groundlings alum Holly Mandel)


The Placeholders


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!
