This show has been a Fringe staple since 1999. It would be a classic move to state that this year the show will be BIGGER and STUPIDER than EVER! But that would be a lie, the show has in fact gotten smarter and and has stayed roughly the same size. Is that boring? Well if it is, the show itself doesn’t reflect that boring-ness, it’s always quite exciting. What else would you expect with the risky theatre and dangerous comedic form like improv?

The show is hosted by CRUMBS (Stephen Sim and Lee White) and will feature members of:  Outside Joke, DnD Improv, Peter’n Chris, Hip.Bang!, as well as many many many more who don’t even know it yet.


The Big Stupid Improv Show presents it’s signature style “Director’s Cut” which has 5 directors in charge of 5 different storylines. The audience then decides after each chapter which stories continue and which story gets CUT. This means that only the best story makes it to the end. The audience has a great responsibility!
