The eighth annual Fighting Improv Smackdown Tournament -- otherwise known as FIST -- pits the most talented three-person troupes in the D.C. area against each other in a fierce battle for audience laughs and all-out comedy supremacy. This year's competitors include an all-puppet team, a blues-music-based group and an ensemble whose entire show is based on celebrity tweets. But you're the ultimate winner -- not only do you get to enjoy the best long-form improv the competitors have to offer, but you also get to vote via secret ballot for who should move on and enjoy a bonus headliner set by a Washington Improv Theater company ensemble.

Reviews & Ratings
Four improv troupes, Precipice, Fling, Blank Slate, and Just Moxie perform together for the first time in an evening of improvised comic plays. Each show is anchored by Bob Adler and Ric Andersen of Precipice, who will improvise an entire comic play, creating all the characters and situations themselves using nothing but their skill, talent, and imaginations, and audience suggestions. Each show also includes at least two of the other troupes improvising their own one-act plays, providing contrasting comic styles and characters.
Precipice creates original, never-seen-before and never-to-be-seen again, totally improvised, full-length comic plays.
Experience the excitement of witnessing a new comic play unfold as it is being created from your suggestions.
What kind of suggestions? Two completely unrelated locations. Locations so different that Shakespeare himself would have a hard time weaving them into a story. (They like the challenge.)
How unpredictable does it get? Shows from last season included "The Greek Island and the College Admissions Office" and "Home Depot and the Earth-bound Meteor."
What will the next play be about? Only you know. Come to the show ready to suggest a favorite location to play your role in creating the performance!
