Philadelphia Improv Festival in Full Swing

Launching on the 7th of November, the 8th Annual Philadelphia Improv Festival opened to generally favorable reviews for the host of performances including well known Gross Butler and other less familiar names like Frank Farrell and Meredith Weir.

Despite the incredibly lousy weather on Wednesday night, the 8th Annual Philadelphia Improv Festival got off to a pretty commendable start. In fact, the second block of the night exceeded my expectations both in terms of the turnout and the performances. (I’m sure the 7 p.m. show was also great—I just wasn’t there to see it.)

I really don’t know why I had any expectations given that three out of the four groups were totally new to me, but I’m almost glad I subconsciously underestimated them.
