‘Felt’ is a completely improvised show with an added touch of fun due to the fact its cast is not human.
This unique, unpredictable, and fun cast has been entertaining audiences at the legendary iO Theater in Chicago for over 7 years.
The Chicago Improv Festival is longest running and largest improv festival in the world. Since 1998, the CIF has been showcasing and celebrating the best improv from Chicago, around the country and around the world. We have featured teams from as far away as Japan, Finland and Turkey and hosted shows by some of the biggest comedic performers of the past two decades. But best of all we showcase the up and coming artists who make improv the vibrant and exciting art form that it is.
