Here's what improv groups had to say about Sarasota Improv Fest:

"This is definitely one of my favorite festivals of the year." - Will, ImprovBoston

"Everyone had a blast. I know I would definitely love to come back." - Rene, Dad's Garage

"As performers, we couldn't have been treated better by you or your audience. Your staff was courteous, friendly and professional. In addition, to have full houses for all of the shows was just astounding. The support of your community is remarkable and you should be proud of all you have accomplished in such a short time." - Jay, SAK Comedy


Our box office is located at the corner of North Palm Avenue and Cocoanut in downtown Sarasota, Florida.
