The EDIT Improv Festival is happening on May 3-5, 2019 at Voodoo Comedy. The festival will feature 15 local and national improv teams with majority-female casts. Our goal is to celebrate and uplift underrepresented voices in Denver's improv comedy community.

Shows are at 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm on Friday, Saturday, and at 7:00 pm on Sunday. Our headliners, Jaime Moyer (Modern Family, 2 Broke Girls, Bob's Burgers) and Maribeth Monroe (Workaholics, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Good Place), will be performing in the 9:00 pm shows on both Friday and Saturday. There are also improv workshops taught by Jaime Moyer and Maribeth Monroe on Saturday and Sunday, a karaoke party on Saturday night, and a talk back on Sunday afternoon. All events are taking place at Voodoo Comedy, 1260 22nd Street, Denver, CO 80205. Tickets for shows and workshops are available at: https://www.groupmindco.org/editfestival
