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 2018 PIP champions! All proceeds go to support the Phoenix Improv Festival. Without your participation, PIF doesn’t happen. Thank you for your support!
