Big City Improv Festival (BCIF)

Date: Friday November 16th 2018
Time: 9:30pm - 11:00pm

Big City Improv Fest presents

Not Oasis presents: The Overshare. It's the improv comedy version of that person you *just* met who tells you how, whilst in the womb, they consumed their twin and at night they dream its dreams. Inspired by audience suggestion, we deliver a super-brief yet deeply-revealing personal monologue and the scenes flow from there. More truth-bomb laden mini-monologues serve as edits. Let's just say, you really get to know (and love) us in 15 minutes.

Lil Strawberry Bitch is a narrative! From a simple suggestion we will take the audience through the highs and lows of 5 different characters as they navigate a fictional world. Are we all apple farmers trying to win the biggest apple contest? Maybe! Are we townspeople in a town on the brink of economic collapse and the only thing that will save the town is a massive benefit concert in the town's centre? Could be! Find out with us!

Our rotating cast performs Long Form improv which is character and relationship driven. The Pointless Form: The Bruce Lee, or Water Form. We look to emulate Bruce Lee's approach to martial arts, through our approach to the art of improv. We are continually training, learning, and exploring various forms, and styles, so that we can be at our most improv ready state, able to use any element, at any given time.
