At 9pm, we will be greeted by our headliners: Pretty Pretty Pony. A team of improv vets with so much experience, so much pizazz, so much raw talent—it’s hard to even discuss. But we shall try.

They have a monthly residency at Westside Comedy Theater where they perform a long form show based off a celebrity guest’s monologue. This Saturday’s guest will be the talented actor Samm Levine (Freaks and Geeks, Inglorious Basterds, Kevin Pollacks Chat Show). He’s interacted with everyone from Tarantino to Damon Lindelof to pre-fame teenaged Seth Rogen. So yeah, he’s gonna have some stories.

Pretty Pretty Pony is comprised of some of the finest improvisors in LA. Mission Improvable Agents, Westside House Team Performers, Coaches, Teachers, Festival Runners, hosts of Pop My Culture Podcast and so much more.

The will make you laugh, make you cry, and they will make you fall in love with improv all over again. They are Pretty Pretty Pony and they are your Headliner for ASMIF 2019!

In the 8pm hour, we have the boys of the Pack theater coming up the 101 and giving us their fire brand of improv.

Dr. God is comprised of some of wildest, most talented, most brazen improv performers in LA. And they do it all with style. They take the classic Harold and grind it up through their Dr. God machine until all that’s left is something incredibly fun and entirely unique.

They’ve played at festivals, they’ve had (and continue to have) residencies at some of finest improv theaters in LA, and on Saturday night they will be your ASMIF 2019 performers.

In the 8pm hour, we will be greeted by a collection of veteran improvisors. Heyday was a structural part of iO West, a house team preforming sold out shows and garnering awards.

From the ashes of iO West, Heyday has seen fit to continue to wow audiences across LA, to secure a bi-monthly residency at Westside, to grow as an ensemble, and to know the Harold both inside and out.

They are acrobats. They contort the craft inside and out, and they have fun while they do it. They are Heyday and they are your ASMIF 2019 performers.

In the 7pm hour, we have a triplet of improv genius. Ms. Rogers is comprised of three of the finest, most talented, most wickedly fun to watch improvisors.

They make improv look effortless because, to be quite honest, they’re masters at it.

They are Nicole Pellegrino, Gillian Bellinger, and Carrie Weisberg. And they are your ASMIF 2019 performers.

In the 7pm hour, we will be chaperoned by the most expertise babysitters around: The Babysitters Club.

This elite club is filled with some of the most talented comedic women in LA. They have backgrounds in improv, sketch, acting, directing, editing, giving birth, and talking smack about boys.

They have performed at festivals and at some of the most notable theaters around LA, including Second City, Westside Comedy Theater and more.

They delight with their relationship-building and will make you forget that your parents won’t be home for hours. They are The Babysitters Club and they are your ASMIF 2019 performers.

In the 6pm hour, we have a musical delight: Rosé. They create an improvised musical that exists for one night only. Rosé is an eclectic ensemble that blend harmonies, create catchy choruses, and play off each other as if they had been rehearsing that specific musical for months — they haven’t.

They are filled with improv vets and currently have a monthly residency at Westside Comedy Theater.

Rosé is an amazing melodic part of the festival and they are your ASMIF 2019 performers.

06/26/2019

In the 6pm hour, we have a two-man improv team like no other: Rollin’ In Riches. They are two improvisors doing the work of ten. They move at the speed of light, calling back jokes you forgot you knew, dazzling with larger-than-life characters and they play off each other with the familiarity of two lifelong best friends.

They have toured the country performing at festivals and teaching workshops. They share a love of improv that is unmatched.

RiR is Rolland Lopez and Rich Baker and they are your ASMIF 2019 performers.

In the 5pm hour, we will be greeted to a riff on the most beloved genre of movies: Romantic-Comedies. Real life coupe, David Carzell and Sammy Glicker, will improvise an entire rom-com genre before your very eyes. There will be meet cutes, running in the rain, and (if all goes well) someone will hold up an iPod over their head and play some Peter Gabriel.

David & Sammy are two incredible improvisors who perform at Westside Comedy Theater. They are your ASMIF 2019 performers and they will make you feel the feels.

In the 5pm hour, kicking off the festival, will be Melanade — a powerhouse group of strong hilarious women, hell bent on making sure improv is fresh, fun and filled with high energy. They do short-form, they do long-form, they do it all.. They are going to kick off the fest with a booming “Yes And!” that will take weeks to recover from.

Hope to see you there.

Today we’d like to introduce you to Matthew Schlissel. So, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. May of 2014 I took my first improv class, on a whim. I had no idea that it would become an essential part of my life going […]

Wanted to take a minute to say that former ASMIF performer, Kristen Cook of Rosé, is preforming in this hilarious Political satire as part of LA Fringe.

Wanna see a funny political satire? Check this one out!

Like a lot of people today, jaded campaign manager Tess Baker (think Jessica Jones meets Josh Lyman) is sick of politics. She’s just about ready to throw in the towel when somebody wakes up a candidate she can work with - Abraham Lincoln.
