Black And Funny Improv Festival sets out to create an awareness within the Black community in the Twin Cities that improv is an art form that they can do and benefit from.
The vision of the Black and Funny Improv Festival is to see the improv scene a place where everyone is welcome to share in a space that is respectful to everyone, where we can celebrate ourselves, celebrate our differences, and build each other up while just enjoying ourselves. Easy.
