Cagematch Registration


Please read through all of the guidance below.

Welcome to the world’s most dangerous improv show, where two mighty teams of gladiators will take the stage to prove who are the Kings and Queens of Saturday night.


Each team will be given 25 minutes to perform.
Each member of the audience is given 1 ballot as they enter the arena. Do not lose your ballot, as you will not be given a new one.
Once the show begins, no more ballots are given out. You must watch both teams to have a vote.
That night’s performers are not allowed to vote, however, everyone else in the room is eligible. The team with the most number of audience votes wins.
Write-in votes for teams not actually competing will be disallowed.
The decision of the host is final. No whining. No recounts. The host will choose the winner in the event of a tie.
This is meant to be a friendly competition. Harassment and intimidation during the performance by either the performers or members of the audience will not be tolerated. The host will not hesitate to eject people for such behavior.
The host can assess penalties and make up rules at their discretion.
Kicking a tray of hot wings into the audience is strictly prohibited.
Performers are not allowed to throw chairs at audience members.
Stacking the audience is not only allowed, but encouraged.


– Only one player needs to be present to represent the team

– You can have a substitution replace your absent team members

– If your entire team is not available – you will have to forfeit your championship

If you submit for a date on the registration form and then become unavailable for that date, you will need to communicate with the host and may need to submit this form again for a new date. Be sure to check all available dates with your team members. (Selection is a first come first served basis and we will try to confirm your submission as soon as possible)

Acceptance will be based on time of submission and availability of team – we will also give priority to new & unusual teams that may not otherwise apply for the regular Torch schedule.

You must present longform improv.

If you submit more than one team per submission period – you may be subject to a wait.

Please be sure that you personally are only registering one team per submission period.
Briefly describe what longform improv show you will be performing.
**If you are scheduled for a date you selected and become unavailable you forfeit your spot for this period and will have to submit again when registration reopens. Please be sure to clear all your available dates with all of your group members.
If you have a fellow team member submitting a team you are a cast member of in the same submission period, please be aware that multiple Cagematch appearances in a session is not a guarantee - it will depend on number of total submissions and size of your submitted teams.
This is a new document as of November 2018 and all performers should complete this document. We appreciate your understanding as we continue to foster a safe and welcoming place to collaborate artistically through improvisation.
If you're team members have not completed our Code of Conduct they will not be able to play in your scheduled event.
