About the Troupes:

No Outlet Improv Troupe:
No Outlet Improv Troupe is a Grand Rapids Origianl, featuring short form games, long form narratives, and musical improv.

Funny Girls:
Funny Girls is a collective of self-identified female comedians, improvisers, actors, writers, musicians, bloggers, YouTubers, and all around hilarious artists. They collaborate on sketches, music, mixed media, improv, and audience participation for live shows every month. Their mission is to work with women of all ages to build self-esteem and encourage creative expression through comedy.

The Toast:
The Toast celebrates relationship-driven long form in a fresh new way. Formed in early 2017 when a group of Pointless Brewery & Theatre classmates decided to fine-tune a new form, The Toast has blossomed into a troupe committed to exploring, presenting, and honoring the comedy in the human condition. The Toast is currently being coached by Moni Jones.

With The Dark:
With The Dark specializes in The Bat, a longform format in which lights are turned off. Preferably the stage should be completely black. Our particular brand is reminiscent of an old timey radio-play, with a predilection towards the spooky and mysterious.

About the Festival:
The Grand Rapids Improv Festival (GRIF) is a weeklong celebration of improv comedy with troupes from all over the country descending on Grand Rapids! With events and performances every night of the week from October 30th to November 6th everyone is sure to find something to tickle their funny bone. Come out and laugh with us!
