The RISE Cup is a charity improv tournament hosted at RISE Comedy. Proceeds for 2023 will benefit Mirror Image Arts! Mirror Image Arts’ mission is to disrupt the prison pipeline through restorative theatre. Our Passion and Purpose is to imagine and create collective liberation for all.
Performers will sign up as a tandem or by themselves and be randomly assigned to form a 4 person improv team. The event has room for 64 performers on 16 teams.
Each round will consist of two teams each performing a 10 minute set of any type of improv comedy, including but not limited to short form, long form and/or genre improv.
