"Stumptown Improv Festival is one of Portland’s best comedy festivals (maybe the best, but we don’t compare Hattori Hanzō swords). I’m continually impressed by the way the Stumptown team ups the ante each year, while keeping the energy high and their hearts pure."
The Stumptown Improv Festival’s first six years have been almost too much. We’ve sold out more shows than you can shake a stick at. We’ve attracted some of the most well-regarded improv groups performing today from LA, NYC, San Francisco, Toronto, Vancouver, BC, Minneapolis, and, of course, Portland. Performers who are vets on the festival scene have raved that “this is one of the best festivals we’ve ever been a part of”. We’ve offered huge gift bags to our comedians and gave people quince brandy. We are OUT OF CONTROL.
