What is an Improvathon? An Improvathon is a continuous performance of Improv for a prolonged duration where the core cast usually goes without sleep for the entire time. The Improv performed can be a wide variety of short-form games and/or one long narrative or different narratives that create a movie-like storyline. Improvisations across the world go from anywhere between 12 to 50 hours long.
ICB is bringing to India its first-ever Improvathon which will be a mammoth 12 hours long. And we have an incredible guest star in the likes of Jonathan Pitts who is the founder of one of the longest-running Improv festivals in the world 'The Chicago Improv Festival' and has taught Improv in over 44 countries. Together we will be improvising non-stop for 12 straight hours.
The way the ticketing for this event works is that, for every 90 mins of the show, you can purchase one ticket or go for a half or full Improvathon pass.
