Sydney’s best improvisers battle for improv supremacy

ITs (Improv Theatre Sydney) proudly presents 'ITs Smackdown' a thrilling competition which pits Sydney's best improvisers, new and old, against one another in the ultimate showdown.

Enjoy rapid scenes between four brilliant teams each night, with the winner decided by audience applause. Who will be crowned the ultimate champion in 2018!

The first nail-biting heat saw Snake Pit (John Robles, Maddie HW and Concetta Caristo) take home the victory. Who will be next? Heat 2 on the 12th of October will see four more teams battle it out followed by the third heat on November 10th.

They say improv is good for your mental-health: it eases anxiety, encourages teamwork, builds confidence... but there will be none of that here! Expect smack talk, bitter rivalries and loads of laughs. There's a championship at stake!

The final showdown will take place during Improv Theatre Sydney's birthday week Nov 29th - December 2nd.

Don't miss out.

  • HEAT 3: SATURDAY 10th November 9:00PM.

  • FINALS: 29th Nov - Dec 2nd (Time TBA)
