Iditaprov: Alaska’s Hilariously fast-paced competitive improv comedy
Iditaprov is an all-improv, suggestion-based comedy show that’s fun for all ages. Two teams of Alaskas finest “actletes” compete on stage for your laughs in this “race to the finish-no holds bard comedy marathon”.
Just in time for Memorial day, Iditaprov is back to kick off the summer. Alaska’s hilariously fast-paced competitive improv comedy, Iditaprov is an all-improv suggestion-based comedy show that’s fun for all ages. Two teams of Alaska’s finest “actletes” compete on stage in this race to the finish no-holds-“bard” (get it?) comedy marathon. YOU yell out the suggestions and YOU award the points, as two “Lead Dogs” and their teams compete for laughs while creating spontaneous scenes, songs, and games – until YOU declare the winner.
Iditaprov presents: Theatre Without a Net!
Usually known for fast-paced short form competitive improv comedy, Iditaprov proudly debuts a feature length long form show. “Theatre Without a Net” is a celebration of spontaneous comedy theatre in two evenings of long form improv – for the first time in Talkeetna! In this long form show the performers take a single audience suggestion (word, location, song lyric, line of dialogue, or conversation) then improvise an entire show inspired by that suggestion. Each evening features new structures including Conscious Comedy, The Harold, Off Book, and more!
