Reviews & Ratings
Corn Productions hosts this improvisational mêlée, offering up their own Artistic Director to emcee the festivities. In round one, teams perform 8 minutes of long-form improv. They are then are evaluated and scored by judges from theater and improv companies all over Chicago including iO, ARFTCo, and Second City as well as special celebrity guest judges. Audience response will also count for a percentage of scoring.
In round two, teams will clash with the house pros—The Improv Gladiators—who will dive into the fray with a furious frenzy of improv skills to block the teams from scoring points in your favorite short-form games such as Party Quirks and Story Story Die.
Points are accumulated throughout the 4 weeks culminating in a semi-final round and then the Grand Finale, in which with the two top scorers from each night collide in an epic battle. In the end, to the victor goes a free four-week run at Cornservatory.
