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.


What We Improvise In The Shadows
Enter the mysterious world of “What We Improvise In The Shadows,” where vampires, ghosts, werewolves, and (most horrifying of all) actors roam freely through the mortal realm. Join our fearless improvisers as they conjure up hilariously spooky scenarios, weaving tales of the supernatural on the spot. Expect to be howling laughter, with plenty of boo-tiful surprises. It’s a fang-tastic improv experience you won’t want to miss!


The Sounds Funny Players
Cast members of the podcast ‘Sounds Funny Radio’ have been given a day pass to leave the recording studio. And they chose to spend it on stage doing improv! Unplugged and off the record, witness the talent pool that calls “Somewhere between #24 and #180 on the Apple Podcasts United States of America Improv chart”.


Student Driver
Indie legends and the creators of IndieFest take the stage with special guests!
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!
