The Boston Comedy Arts Festival is one of New England's biggest and best festivals, bringing together artists from around the country (and globe) in a week-long celebration of the art of comedy. As a nonprofit comedy arts organization, ImprovBoston's mission is to serve the community through laughter; and for one week each year, our community is a global one. Come be part of a 5-day comedy feast that spans multiple stages (all in walking distance) showcasing improv, standup, sketch, music, variety acts and everything in between. With world class workshops, Beantown hospitality, networking opportunities, and a week's worth of bonding through this crazy artform we all love, make ImprovBoston your home away from home. We can't wait to see you in September!
