1. It’s hilarious! On the spot comedy made just for you.

2. The nation’s best come to you!  We have duo’s coming from Los Angeles, San Diego  Edmonton Alberta, Toronto,  Boston, Austin Minneapolis, New York City, and more.

3. It’s cheap! A festival pass is only $49 and that gets you into every single show at  DÜOFEST  from the 1st to the 4th. Believe me it’s a lot of shows! Tickets to individual shows are also really inexpensive.

4. Get off your couch! Yes, you. Bring your friends! Hang out. Live theater, spontaneous comedy, might costs less than a movie ticket but it’s worth soo much more.

5. Get inspired!  Need to get away from the everyday? Improvisation is an amazing art that teaches boldness and creativity along with support cooperation. Watching two people create whole worlds and characters with such confidence and magic will inspire you.
