Fever Pitch

Copy of Copy of all play face off (1).png

This summer, Bad Dog Theatre presents Fever Pitch, a 15-week competition pitting 13 longform improv teams against one another.

how it works

Each team will perform three times over the course of the summer. Each show features three longform improv teams squaring off, with the audience choosing their favorites. At the end of the night, after the votes are counted, the top team earns 3 points, the second place team earns 2 points and third place earns 1 point.

At the end of the summer, the teams with the most points will square off as until there’s only one top dog left.

Each show takes place Tuesdays at 9:30 PM at Bad Dog Theatre. Ticket prices are Pay-What-You-Can - no one will be turned away due to lack of funds!

Fever Pitch is heavily inspired by Montreal Improv's Threepio competition, created by Marc Rowland, and intentional similarities between the two shows (of which there are many) were implemented with permission.
