The second annual Big-Little Comedy Fest spotlights the quickest wits in the country, jamming steroids of laughter into the Midwestern comedy scene with a five-day laugh-shedding showcase of improv and sketch teams. Each night of the festival, troupes representing cheese-eating states and mythical lands such as Texas converge to waylay audiences with unscripted nonsense and on-the-fly laugh baiting. The schedule teems with teams of trustworthy funny mercenaries, including Never Pickles, Crawlspace Eviction, and The Cosby Sweaters, all born with the skill to origami audiences suggestions into gold cranes of comedy, slathered across 14 showtimes to choose from.
Free of the elitism typical of prop comedy, the Big-Little Comedy Fest shares comic secrets in seven different workshops that help exhume everyone’s inner Robin Williams. With the purchase of each festival ticket, burgeoning quipsters receive 25% off one of these sessions. Workshops will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday–Friday, and 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, covering topics such as musical improvisational comedy, stage combat, and building character relationships. Email email@example.com with Workshop or 1,000 smiley-face emoticons in the subject line to sign up, and prepare to make scriptwriting bullies cry with newfound ad-libbing skills.
