Labor Day Weekend “Impro-con” Festival Brings Adventures, Laughs
Ventura Improv Company, now in its 29th year, is presenting its traditional Labor Day weekend comedy improv festival. The theme is “Impro-con” and the shows are happening August 30, 31 and September 1 in downtown Ventura.
Ventura Improv Company (VIC), the longest-running group and improv theatre in the County, brings a tongue-in-cheek “Comi-con” style theme to this latest festival. The VIC will feature many of its own performers as well as several new faces and old friends from other parts of California.
Coming back this year are the DK & Morgan show, a duo comprised of DK Reinemer and Morgan Grobe, who have recently relocated from Washington state to LA. Also returning is the celebrated long-form group Kind Strangers, who will again present a full-length, Tennessee Williams-style show, completely made up on the spot.
New to the festival this year is Mission IMPROVable, one of the longest running improv shows in Los Angeles and the oldest established comedy team in Santa Monica.
VIC performers will present several of their favorite improv formats, including Spontaneous Broadway, wherein a long-form, Broadway-style musical is made up on the spot; and SuperScene, a mix of long- and short-form that has been a recent favorite of the VIC audiences.
More guests and special events will be added to the schedule as they get confirmed.
