The Ocean State Black and Funny Improv Festival is back this fall!
Our goal is to create an improv world where all are welcome to celebrate ourselves, learn from our differences, and build each other up while sharing in a space that is respectful and generous to all.
The festival will feature nightly headliner performances, guest troupes, mixer shows, workshops, parties, and more!
