The Manila Improv Festival is Happening, But Nobody Knows What's Happening

They won't cue you in, so just laugh from start to finish and pretend you get it.

( What we know is that it will run from July 8 to July 12 and that several groups, the Silly People's Improv Theater (SPIT) included, are performing. That's about it. 


SPIT commits to the act



Taichung Improv


The list of troops performing is a mouthful but bear with us. You can catch the 3 Dudes Improv (Hong Kong), The Beijing Collective (Beijing), Impromafia (Brisbane), The Improv Company (Singapore), Landy & Summers (Los Angeles), People Liberation Improv (Hong Kong), People Republic Comedy (Shanghai), Pip Show (Warsaw), The Pirates of Tokyo (Tokyo), Taichung Improv (Taichung), To Be Continued... (Hong Kong), and Zmack (Shanghai) have on The Bacolod Improv Group, Dulaang Atenista, One and a Half Men, SPIT, and Switch at the PETA Theater Center. 


All of them will do their best to make you laugh by not practicing any material and just going with the flow. If they crash and burn, it will at least appeal to you schadenfreude-ily. If they can make up a skit on the spot, we can make up a word to describe the things they will do.

Watch it with a willingness to laugh, because sometimes it will not make sense, but the earnestness is enough to be endearing.
