What is Improvapalooza?

Improvapalooza was founded in the year 2000 by the Louisville Improvisors to showcase the wide variety and styles from the world of improv.

It is the longest running improv comedy festival in the Southeast, bringing together the best improvisors in the country, including writers, producers, and performers from The Simpsons, SNL, The Daily Show, MAD TV among others.

IMPROVAPALOOZA has also featured the top improv groups from Louisville, Nashville, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Ft. Wayne, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago.

Louisville Improvisors originated ensemble improvisation in Louisville in 1999 and have continued to explore the unique art form of Theatrical Improvisation ever since their concept shows walk the tightrope of unscripted theatre... combining traditional stage work with the unpredictable elements of improv. The result is an adrenaline pumping evening where anything goes... and usually does.

Comedy w/ live music and more

THE BUDDY GILM SHOW is the Louisville Improvisors spoof of old time radio, music and comedy variety shows of the past and an exercise in nostalgia. Louisville Improvisors are Chris Anger, Alec Volz and Todd Hildreth, who have a way of twisting even the simplest comedic concepts into something truly absurd. "We've done concept shows before, but with The Buddy Gilm show we wanted to combine fiction and reality." says Alec. "It's a fake radio show with real people," quips Chris, portrayer of Buddy himself. All and sundry are cordially invited to join Buddy Gilm and Jerry Jenkins, his long suffering announcer of 18, almost 19 years, and the best damn bandleader in the free world, Battle Axe Adderall, as they bring their patented brand of old school comedy, live music and dancing to the radio!

"A hilarious satire" ~ Velocity Weekly

"Louisville Improvisors concept shows walk the tightrope of unscripted theatre...combining traditional stage work with the unpredictable element of improv. The result is an adrenaline pumping night where anything goes...and usually does."

Featuring
The Tranz4merZ
One game. Thirty minutes. A buncha guys.
With only one beginning action, the TranzmerZ spin a stream of consciousness world from gym cops to patrons of a sperm bar using the simple improvisational game of transformations. It’s fast, intense, and funny as hell as they feed off one another and break all the rules.The Trans4merZ began performing in the fall of 1991 in Santa Monica, California The idea was to create a new form of improvisation that didn't rely upon standard game formats, or long form structures that had recently become popular. Many different formats were suggested before the idea of doing transformations as a non-stop, half-hour performance structure was finally settled upon. This has been the form for The Trans4merZ show ever since. Along the way, notable personalities such as Cynthia Stevenson ("Happiness," "Oh, Baby,") and Lisa Kudrow ("Friends," "The Opposite of Sex,") were regular performers with the group. Guest performers have included Jon Lovitz and Conan O' Brian.

Please go to www.Trans4merZ.com for more info and videos of recent performances.

Bios of the performers scheduled to appear:
Chris Ellis After graduating Manchester University with a degree in drama, spent time in London playing Shakespearian idiots and fools, as well as some contemporary morons. Also, in London, he appeared on BBC TV's "The Young One's" and spent two years as the Associate Director of Inter-Action Theatre Productions. After moving to Los Angeles he became a film editor, editing nine movies, including films for CBS, Disney and Paramount, as well as writing, directing and editing award winning videos and film installations for The Ford Motor Company, NASA'a Kennedy and Johnson Space Centers.

He most recently wrote and directed the film that can be seen at the U.S. Pavillion at the World Expo in Japan.

Harry Hannigan began his showbiz career talking a small dog off some insulation in a popular commercial, propelling him overnight into receptionist work. His television appearances include "The Tonight Show", "According to Jim" and he recently played the role of Neanderthal Chieftan "Clive" in the low budget film "The Hunters." He now writes for "The Troop" on Nickelodeon and only answers his own phone. He is proud to be the most physically appealing (male) of The Trans4merZ, but realizes the bar is set very low.

He continued acting with small parts on "The Bob Newhart Show," "Newhart," "The Bronx Zoo," "It's Garry Shandling's Show," was future man in “Great Scott” and was recently on Zrock.

Previous to that Jon was a member of The Groundlings and was a regular in Bill Steinkellner’s, “InstaPlay.” As an actor he has been featured in the films “Project X”, “Fright Night” and the mega-bomb “House 2.” Since he realized, rather early on, that making a living from improv was impossible, to support his family he turned to the world of television writing.

10 THINGS YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT THE IRISH HILL IMPROV FESTIVAL:
  1. It's the first one!
  2. There actually aren't enough improvisers in Irish Hill to make a "festival" so we had to bring some in from "Los Angeles."
  3. It's annual?
  4. It takes place in Irish Hill. That's in Louisville, Kentucky. That's in the United States. Which is a country on planet Earth. The Earth is in the solar system. Well, the ball won't happen in Irish Hill, but the rest apply.
  5. When the wind blows right, you can smell Butchertown.
  6. The Irish Hill Neighborhood Association won a prolonged bidding war against Deer Park to host the festival. The Upper Highlands dropped out early.
  7. Improv is an artform. Invented by the original inhabitants of Irish Hill: the Swedes.
  8. The Groundlings also performed at the First Annual Toluca Lake Improv Festival.
  9. Andy Dick WILL NOT be attending.
  10. Irish Hill was once known as Billy Goat Hill. The name was changed after a copyright infringement suit was filed by Billy Goat Strut alley downtown. Billy Goat Hill henceforth became known as "Irish Hill"
