2018 Submission Form: Contest 4 Improv4Humans at Station Theater
Thank you for your interest in Contest 4 Improv4Humans!

This form closes at 11:59 pm on Friday, January 12. Please review the Contest Description and Official Rules with your group prior to submitting. The schedule for the prelim round will be announced by January 15.

Improv comedy teams across the country are eligible to compete in the second annual “contest4improv4humans,” hosted by UCB’s Matt Besser. Starting in 2018, participating comedy theaters will hold qualifying rounds for teams to do their best set in the style of Matt Besser’s podcast improv4humans. The best teams in each city will post their sets online for a chance to compete in a final, nationwide round - and one winning team will fly to New York City to perform with Matt Besser at the Del Close Marathon.

Each team will consist of three or four members, all of whom must be over 18 years old and residents of the United States. Team members may not be under any music, acting, or other contract that would limit their ability to freely appear in an online video (see official rules for details.) Employees of the E.W. Scripps Corporation and their immediate family members are ineligible.

The first round is a live performance taking place at 10-15 theaters across the country. Each competing team will have roughly 20 minutes to do a set in the style of improv4humans:

- All performers sit at a table throughout.
- They perform three scenes.
- Each scene is prompted by a one word suggestion from the audience, followed by a group discussion of that suggestion.
- Each set will be taped. A panel of judges at each theater will determine one winning team; then, each Regional winner will release the tape of their set online. Matt Besser and Earwolf will select three teams from these video submissions to move on to the final round.

A maximum number of 9 troupes will be accepted for the preliminary rounds, which will take place February 3, 10, and 17 at 8:30pm. The winner of each preliminary round will compete in the final round on February 24 at 8:30pm.

Performers may only submit as part of one troupe.
