L.A.'s improv community assembles again for the second annual Los Angeles Indie Improv Festival. The one-day, 12-hour event will be jam-packed with laughs as more than 125 improv groups perform across three stages in Hollywood. The festival is produced by indie comedy shows Crashbar Improv, the Manifesto Show, Room 101, Tuesday Night Thunder and the 11th Hour show, who joined forces to create a festival showcasing the vast base of talented improv ensembles that perform outside of established comedy theaters (see: IO West, Upright Citizens Brigade, etc.). In true indie spirit, you'll see a multitude of improv styles, from groups that create an entire one-act musical based on your suggestion to weirder, more experimental comedy sets. It's all made up on the spot and it's all free, though donations are highly encouraged. Art/Works Theatre, 6569 Santa Monica Blvd., Hlywd.; Oh! My Ribs Stage, 6468 Santa Monica Blvd., Hlywd.; Clubhouse Theatre, 1107-A El Centro, Hlywd.; all Sat., May 25, noon-mid.; free. LAindieimprovfestival.com.
