TONIGHT: The Philadelphia Improv Festival Ends

The 2008 Philadelphia Improv Festival ends tonight with a full slate of another 13 groups over four shows. We recently interview the three producers of the show and here's a sneak peek at tonight's lineup.

Dirty Water: Five Chicago improvisers talk about Boston sports and more in the setting of a bar.
Elaine: An all-women longform cast that from the DSI Comedy Theater in Carrboro, North Carolina.
Men About Town: Philadelphia trio made up of Matt Nelson (PHIF co-founder, producer), Alli Soowal (PHIF producer), and Corey Cohen (sketch group The Sixth Borough)

Tybrus: Straight outta New York City!
Surf 'n Turf: "Three men with no fear of intimacy or injury push the boundaries of traditional improv comedy to create spontaneous theater that is physical, intense, moving, and occasionally funny."
iMusical: Musical improv with made-on-spot keyboard music, songs and scenes from the Washington Improv Theater.

Bombardo: All-women cast that regularly perform at the Gotham City Improv in NYC.
Horse & House: WIT members that now live in DC, NYC and Chicago, so this is a special occasion.
Rare Bird Show: You probably know 'em. Philly's top improv group.

Hello Laser: NYC's Magnet Theater house team.
Dr. Fantastic: "With an emphasis on speed, parody, and the absurd, Dr. Fantastic abandons cherished improv concepts such as character, truth, and coherence. Be prepared for a wild ride through people and places that can only exist on stage."
Beatbox: Chi-town's fusion of Hip Hop and Improv Comedy.
Mister Diplomat: From the Dirty South Theater improv team with a monologue delivered by a special radio personality guest!
