The AB Devils
Come one….experience the thrill;
That the AB devils have to bring to you (it’s chill);
Abhi and Bhav put their skills to the test,
(with their team name- a pun that Bhav doth protest).
We hope you think they’re totally sublime;
As they do all their scenes completely in rhyme!

Indian Improv Theatre SG
IITSG draws on the richness and diversity of South Asian life, to create fun and relatable content. IITSG itself stands for Indian Improv Theatre Singapore – though the name is a nod to Indian Institute of Technology (IIT is the Harvard of India – and the university their parents wish they could’ve attended).
They serve up improv short form games with a dash of masala! Focusing on the South Asian experience – including (but not limited to) overbearing relatives, parental disappointment, awkward dates, and the looming opportunity/threat of arranged marriage, many of the themes IITSG covers are as universal as they are South Asian. If you’ve ever been compared to your cousins or cornered by an aunty at a social function, you’ll probably appreciate what they have in store!
A troupe formed in 2016, Karma Cornflicts present their unique take of ‘Mediumprov’. Karma Cornflicts will be bringing improvised goodness that’s not too short, not too long, but just right.

Legion of Skulls
Here is a team that began by brainstorming what we never see on improv stages, and what they think might be impossible to see (too strange! too violent! too sexy!).
Then they started sharing their own skills within the ensemble through self-led workshops on clown, mask, physical theatre, intimacy, magical realism and external disruptions – anything multidisciplinary and skill-based. They’re hungry for a different kind of improv: improv that can be abstract, is always evocative, and ultimately free. And they will be serving it up at the Singapore Improv Festival.
May Contain Nuts
The members of May Contain Nuts are all recent graduates of Yale-NUS College, with members who have experience ranging from 4-years and founding a troupe, to one intense six-hour class.
A self-professed new and excited troupe, they’re eager for the opportunity to perform for a larger audience for the first time. The Nuts will be performing a short-form game, which will inspire their long form performance.

PowerPoint Karaoke (PPTK)
What happens when you create a bunch of random slides and get presenters who have never seen them before to speak about them? You are about to find out. With topics ranging from anything from a quarterly business review to a PhD thesis defence, watch as improvisers think on their feet to give a presentation unlike anything you will ever see again.
Revel takes Singaporeans favourite topic, food, as it inspiration for honest, heart felt long form improv scenes. Bon appetite!
Singapore American School
On The Shoulders of Giants” from the Singapore American School.
The Spam Artists are a team of fun-loving and clearly morally passable people (Teng Yan, Dennis, Miguel, Pang, Adam, and Charlie) who came together because of their common love of wacky humour, comedy and improv. They will be playing a series of short-form improv games that will turn suggestions from the audience into crazy sketches, jokes and (possibly) even songs!
