Taking place in February, the Seattle Festival of Improv Theater grew from a two-night affair in 2001 to a five-night bonanza at multiple venues by 2013. Currently, it takes place in the University District at the Wing-It Theatre and nearby stages. SFIT is hosted by Jet City Improv, which provides weekly improv entertainment in the neighborhood through feature length unscripted plays, the Jet City Improv show, midnight shows, and the improvised re-dubbed film events known as Twisted Flicks.
"The name of the game is quality and variety, and we keep uncovering more of each,” said Andrew McMasters, who produces the festival each year. "We've worked very hard to pick the best groups in the country to show off what improv can do; and love showing off our local talent to groups from the rest of the country so they can see why Seattle is one of the top improv cities in the country."
