Boston Comedy Arts Festival
September 10 - September 14, 2014
The 2014 Boston Comedy Arts Festival covers multiple stages and brings together internationally-renowned improv, sketch, and stand-up comedy acts. ImprovBoston proudly produces the festival, offering performance and training opportunities, as well as the chance to nurture creative comedy endeavors and build bonds of friendship.
In addition to comedy performances at both ImprovBoston stages and the Oberon and Brattle Theater in Harvard Square, the festival includes workshops with festival headliners, a talk show with influential comedians from across the nation as well as industry panel discussions and a host of ImprovBoston-sponsored events. In addition to mainstream improv, sketch and comedy, the festival celebrates alternative comedy genres including musical improvisation, monologues, laser shows, puppet improv, family-friendly shows and more.
Festival headliners include Laura Hall of Whose Line Is It Anyway (LA), Upright Citizens Brigade Theater (LA, NYC), Bri-Ko (Chicago, Second City), the Magnet Theater (NYC), You’re The Expert (WBUR, podcast), Chris Duffy (ImprovBoston alumnus and NYC standup), national mind-reading sensation Eric Dittleman (featured on America’s Got Talent), and comedian Jonathan Katz (Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist).
