FAQ

How many matches will I get to perform in?

It is possible your team could be eliminated after only 1 performance. The winner of each individual matchup of 3 teams moves on to the next round automatically. The highest scoring second place team from each night also moves on. Remember, the audience vote decides.

Can any improv team apply?

If you are Atlanta based, then Yes! The battle is for all teams no matter your experience level or if you already have a show, or if you've never done a show.

Do musicians or technical improvisers count toward my roster of 8?

A single musician or a technical improviser will not count toward your 8, but you can only have 1 of those and it not count. Anything more will reduce your roster size.
