The eighth annual Kalamazoo Improv Festival is hitting the stage this weekend.

The Epic Center will host the festival on Oct. 21 and 22 with shows at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. each day.

Teams from Chicago, Grand Rapids, Detroit and Kalamazoo will perform scenes that will leave you weeping with laughter; all made up completely on the spot using suggestions from the audience.

Festival goers will be able to buy drinks, tickets and snacks at the convenient second floor concession area. Have a drink while you enjoy top-notch improv. All drink proceeds go directly to the Kalamazoo Male Chorus, who will be serving beverages both nights.

Tickets are $10 general admission for each show, or get a $25 fest pass and see as many shows as you want. For the Saturday workshops, admission is $15 per workshop.
