Stumptown Improv Festival


Artists Repertory Theatre (map) Southwest
Aug. 4-6, 7 p.m. 2016

$14-17 single shows, $37-40 fest pass

If you’re not paying attention to Portland’s improv scene, you’re doing it wrong—it’s one of the city’s most uniquely delightful and quickly growing arts communities, and the Stumptown Improv Festival is one of your best chances to see as much improv as you can handle—both local and imported—in one jam-packed weekend. After last year’s sold-out shows and packed performances, this summer the fest has a shiny, new, (and importantly, bigger) venue—Artists Repertory Theatre—and a stacked lineup. There shouldn’t be any duds on the docket, but you especially can’t go wrong with up-and-coming local jokesters Tunnel, Bang + Burn’s relentlessly hilarious mini-action-movies on demand, the improbably named and consistently great J Names Improv, local legends the Liberators, and the clever Canadian ladies of Virginia Jack, whose performance style is less comedy bro, more bookish cat enthusiast.
