Improv Comedy Tournament Starts Dec. 1

This December, join Seattle’s longest-running improv troupe, Unexpected Productions, as they bring together 16 improv teams to battle it out in an extreme improv comedy tournament 'Womb Escape', judged by you! The competition starts Sat., Dec. 1, 8:05 p.m.Tickets $10 (available online or at the door).

In this tournament,  each team (4 per night) performs 4 sets of improvised comedy scenes. Audience cheers are what determines the winners (so bring your friends!). The top 4 surviving teams come back to compete in the ultimate showdown at 8:05 p.m., Saturday, December 22, in the championship round. The winners not only gain the desired Womb Escape Trophy but also pride, and the satisfaction of knowing that their quick wit and ingenious humor gained them comedic respect in the eyes of improv connoisseur's across the pacific northwest (…or that they had the most friends in the audience)!

Wonder where the term ‘Womb Escape’ came from? The significance of the tournament name, ‘Womb Escape’, which began in 2007, is the idea that each team originally spawned from Unexpected Productions improv school and then became successful groups on their own without the warmth and comfort of the Seattle Theatresports’ "womb-like" Market Theater.  It has evolved into a tournament for anyone in the pacific Northwest with an interest in performing improv. All experience levels are welcome!

Unexpected Productions Presents ‘Womb Escape’
8:05 p.m., Saturday, December 1, 8, 14, 15, 21 and 22
