The 10th Annual Kalamazoo Improv Festival, October 19th and 20th, is set to be the biggest, baddest festival, yet! Known for drawing the best improvisers from all over the Midwest, including Chicago and Grand Rapids, festival organizer Dann Sytsma says, quote, "This is going to be a big one. We’ll be bringing back one of our most popular improvisers, Craig Uhlir, from Chicago, who performed at the festival back when it first started. We’ll also be featuring a live recording of the internationally known podcast Gettin’ Nuts, which is presented by its sister podcast, the extremely popular Hello from the Magic Tavern. It’s going to be a great way to honor the festival’s past and continue to build upon it.” Sytsma is not only the festival's organizer, he's a founding member of Kalamazoo's Crawlspace Eviction improv troop.
