The College Improv Tournament is a celebration of collegiate improv disguised as a competition that encompasses 12 regionals and ultimately culminates with a Nationals competition in Chicago, IL. Our aim is to foster the growth of the art form for college improvisers, both as individual players and as teams. We also strive to foster a strong sense of community among college improvisers both on a regional and national level. We also take great pride in providing college improvisors with exposure to professional feedback from improv directors and producers, and performance opportunities on professional stages across the U.S.

College Improv Tournament is part of Chicago Improv Productions, NFP. CIP’s mission is to celebrate the present, honor the past, and showcase the future of improvisational theatre, in all of its multi-disciplinary expressions, through local, regional, national, and international perspectives; by presenting and producing performances and workshops for both the general public and practicing improvisational theatre artists.
