The Bend Institute of Comedy (BIC), a comedy hotspot in Bend, is thrilled to announce its inaugural improv comedy competition, the IMPROV GRAND PRIX! This exciting event promises to be a night of uproarious laughter and spontaneous entertainment as top improvisers battle it out for comedy supremacy.

The IMPROV GRAND PRIX will feature members of BIC's house troupes—Alpha Team, Team Athena, and Pro Guests—alongside our top up-and-coming performers. In a unique twist, the audience will have the power to shape the competition by selecting names from the "Goblet of Comedy Fire" to form three brand-new improv teams. These newly formed teams will then compete in long-form improvised comedy sets, showcasing their quick wit and comedic prowess. As the tension rises and the laughter mounts, only one team will emerge victorious and claim the title of IMPROV GRAND PRIX CHAMPIONS, as voted..BY THE AUDIENCE!

BIC's shows consistently sell out. To guarantee your seat at this unmissable event, be sure to purchase tickets in advance. For those unable to secure tickets beforehand, a limited number may be available for purchase at the door. So arrive early, get on the wait list, and cross your fingers!
