Seattle Festival of Improv Theater

OK, I need a profession, a location, and a style of music. . .

Improvisers from around the country unite for a festival of the fun and the funny at the Seattle Festival of Improv Theater. Only five years old, the festival has gained a national reputation—a good one!—which enables them to bring talented groups from as far away as New York, Texas, and Hawaii. Plus you can catch local shows developed by Wing-It Productions, the event’s host and the creator of some of the most consistently laugh-worthy material in the city. If you’re an improviser, an aspiring improviser, or a presidential candidate who needs to appear more “likeable,” sign up for one of the weekend’s workshops taught by the pros. See for the full schedule. The Historic University Theater, 5510 University Way N.E., and The Market Theater, 1428 Post Alley. Single tickets $15, festival passes $45. 8 p.m. tonight though Sat., Feb. 16, 3 p.m. Sun., Feb. 17. BRENT ARONOWITZ
