About

  “SWIFT. CURRENT. COMEDY.”

Come join us in one of Michigan’s most happening cities for a week of Improv festival loving at the Grand Rapids Improv Festival (GRIF) 2018. GRIF will be held October 29th to November 5th in Downtown Grand Rapids! Our home base is Dog Story Theater (7 Jefferson Ave.), with fun events across downtown throughout the week.

Grand Rapids improv enthusiasts and troupes have come together to create an even bigger festival with even more performances, workshops, special events, networking, and-most importantly- ample opportunities for getting weird! We’re excited to bring together local and national talent to the city that we love. We’re also excited for others to come experience the fantastic city that Grand Rapids is.

We look forward to bringing in everything we learned last year to create an even more dynamic event. We’re keeping some of the ‘not to miss’ events of past years like Improv Chaos and the Improv Hop while throwing in some new crowd pleasers.

The Planning Committee

The Grand Rapids Improv Festival is produced 100% by volunteers dedicated to bringing together the improv community.
