PIP happens in the month of March. It matches the same structure as college basketball’s March Madness. A double bracket single elimination tournament. We hope again this year to have enough submission to present a full sweet sixteen. Each team will go head to head in a preliminary round consisting of 15 minute sets. The audience decided winner goes onto the quarter finals, the semis, then the Final head to head consisting of a 25 minute set. The team that gets voted the winner in the final round wins $150, a trophy and all the glory of being the 2017 PIP champions! All proceeds go to support the Phoenix Improv Festival. Without your participation, PIF doesn’t happen. Thank you for your support!

ENTER YOUR TEAM
3 things to know about registration:
1. You can register your team now – and submit your full Roster & registration fee by February the 5th.
2. You can register up to two teams, however, if your two teams meet up in the tournament you will have to choose which team you play with.
3. Your submission does not guarantee acceptance into the competition – entrance to the PIP is dependent on time of submission, availability for performance & number of registrations (i.e. we want the schedule to allow for the most improvisor representation)
Registration starts immediately! (Registration fee of $20 per team – it goes to support the 2017 Phoenix Improv Festival, a cash prize & a Trophy!)
Submissions Closed till 2018
