Long Form, Short Form and Democracy.

Chicago's original improv elimination show.

Who will survive? The Improv Challenge opened as an eight-person improv show featuring long-form montages of improvised sketches based on audience suggestions. At the end of the show, the audience votes one player out of the show. Every week another player is eliminated until closing night, when the remaining players will improvise until the victor stands alone. Only by proving his or her skills will that player earn the prize -- respect from the improv community...and $100 cash.

Chicago crowds are the most improv-savvy audiences in the world, and The Improv Challenge is counting on their trained eyes to direct the outcome of the competition. Players will have to work to earn the love and respect of the audience, because at the end of each performance of The Improv Challenge, the audience will vote to determine who stays and who goes. The least popular performer will be voted off the stage, and out of the competition, leaving only the best "survivors" to return for your entertainment.
