YOU GOT WHO?!?
Amber Nash (Archer [FX Network], Pam Poovey) is joined on stage by Matt Horgan, the associate artistic director of Dad's Garage in Atlanta, to bring you Big Ol' Show - an improv show that's fearless in its pure Southernness. Big Ol' Show will be presented on Thursday, April 24 and on Saturday, April 26 - both nights during the 6:30pm slot.
Susan Messing, the Chicago Improv Festival's 2010 Improvisor of the Year, will be performing Messing with a Friend - a joyful, uncensored, and improvised romp-through hell which has run at Chicago's infamous Annoyance Theater for eight years running. Her friend for the night is Nick Armstrong (Story Notes [AMC]), a veteran performer from iOWest in Los Angeles. This show promises to be a highlight of the festival.

About the Festival
Throughout Alaska, improvisational theater has gradually gained a foothold amongst the throngs of traditional scripted theater companies. Our state has been visited by guest artists from some of North America's most respected improvisational theater companies. Alaskan performers are also appearing in Outside festivals and emigrating into Outside companies.
AS IF! - The Alaska State Improv Festival is a celebration of improvisational theater in its vast spectrum of forms, and an opportunity for Alaska's own actors to perform alongside, meet with, and learn from others outside our own circle. We look forward to seeing you at AS IF! in April 2014.
