Now in its fourth year, BIG IF welcomes over 150 improvisers from around the world for four nights of completely unscripted comedy theatre.

From November 2 to 5 you once again have the chance to see some of the world’s best improv comedians on stage right here in Barcelona at The BIG IF, Europe’s largest English-language improv festival. Now in its fourth year, the festival brings together over 150 improvisers from more than 20 countries who take to the stage over four nights to deliver 20 original comedy shows. No scripts, costumes or sets, just original fast-paced comedy built on audience suggestions.

Alongside Barcelona’s own Impro Acatomba and The Modestos, you’ll have the opportunity to see Rocket Sugar Factory, an American duo who sell out venues across Europe; Irishman Neil+1 who improvises his entire show with a randomly selected audience member; multiple-award–winning British team The Maydays; and Texas-based veterans Parallelogramophonograph, who will perform an improvised French farce and have been described as 'Austin’s finest purveyors of the improvisation genre'. Plus, musical lovers take note: there will even be a fully improvised musical, proving there really is something for everyone during this festival.

The 2015 edition sold out three of the four shows, so be sure to get your tickets online to avoid disappointment!
