Spontaneous Combustion Atlanta Improv Comedy Festival is Back at The Basement Theatre! March 2-6, 2011
The 3rd Annual Spontaneous Combustion Atlanta comedy festival lights up Buckhead March 2-6, 2011 at the Basement Theatre and the laughter is sure to be heard throughout the city!
Billed as “some of the funniest people you’ve never heard of,” the festival features emerging comedic talent from Minneapolis, Chicago and Raleigh-Durham, as well as some favorites back for their third year in a row, Ph Productions from Chicago and Improv Boston, who will entertain and delight with improvised musicals and long-form shows. Even more exciting, this year’s festival goes international with Canadian groups Nakatomi Protocol and We’re From Here, as well as local favorites are included with Atlanta’s own: Revis and Zeiss, The Arm and Village Theatre.
