United States of Improv
THE CAROLINAS vs RHODE ISLAND
Follow @USimprov on Twitter and keep up with the tournament
Our Proclamation: To bring improvisers together based upon where they are from allowing them to celebrate improv, unity, and the pursuit of happiness.
This year we have over 150 performers that have come together to make 16 State Teams. (There was no minimum or maximum performer requirement therefore you will see team sizes vary between states)
Here are the basics…
Who: 16 State teams made up of improvisers from each particular state.
What: 16 teams campaign their talent to America in hopes that the general public will “elect” them STATE OF THE UNION
Where: All shows will take place on the iO West Main Stage Tuesday and Wednesday Nights with the Final Championship taking place at the 10th Annual Los Angeles Improv Comedy Festival in June.

During the 10th Annul Los Angeles Improv Comedy Festival
June 3rd – 9th (Date and Time TBD)
How: The actual tournament will be similar to a cage match. Each show will be timed and there will be a visible timer for the improvisers to see. After each team performs once the audience will be given an opportunity to vote for which team they want to win. During the final championship there will be a “Supreme Court” incase of a close “election”.
The final two teams will be chosen May 15th & 22nd giving each team plenty of time to prepare for the final championship which will take place at the LA Improv Comedy Festival at iO West. That said all the performers on both teams will be official performers of the LA Improv Festival and will be encourage to promote their final championship show on the Main Stage. In addition, the team that wins State of the Union will receive a Main Stage run in June.
