The RISE Cup – Round 1

The Rise Cup is a charity improv competition focused on comedy, community building and charity. This Cup will donate proceeds to TGTHR ( https://tgthr.org/). TGTHR is fighting to end youth homelessness and they are adding facility in our neighborhood very soon.

These performers have signed up from all over Colorado and beyond to be randomly joined with other performers to build a team and show for The Rise Cup. They will play through a bracket decided by audience vote until we award our first ever Rise Cup trophies to the winners. This event is loaded with hilarious performers working together for the first time to make you laugh while also raising money for TGTHR.
