The Registration Fee gives you access to be a part of CIIF19 as a participant. The fee covers a small part of the administrative tasks for organizing CIIF.

If you register for CIIF early you will have more benefits. e.g. earlier access to sign up for CIIF workshops. Which means you can register for your favourite workshops before others, and minimize the chance they sell out. We have experienced workshops sell out in 24hours after release, so be ready on your device to register for your desired workshops as soon as they are released.

SHOWS

WHERE CAN I BUY TICKETS?

Tickets will not be available before Februrary 2019.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM AN IMPROV SHOW AT CIIF19?

Some of the best improv comedy on the planet! All shows are performed by professional teams trained in the art of improvised comedy theatre. Which means that each group will take a single suggestion from an audience member and let that suggestion inspire them to create a 25-minute comedy play in front of your very eyes.

Nothing is rehearsed or prepared by the teams: every improviser is a director, actor, editor, ‘scriptwriter’ (in the moment), bit-part player, sound effects person – in fact, whatever is required to bring their comic scenes to life. 

IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT FOR SHOWS?

There is no age limit. However, due to the nature of improvised comedy shows, some content cannot be guaranteed to be suitable for minors and very PC people. We always aim for such content to be dealt with in a creative, intelligent manner and never in the spirit of hurtfulness or mockery.

HOW LONG are THE CIIF19 MAIN SHOWS?

The estimated length of each specific show can be found in the CIIF19 programme available in February 2019.
