Improv Revolution launches the Coup de Comedy 2021, an online worldwide comedy revolution with the Global Improvisation Initiative Symposium 2021!

Hello! We are Improv Revolution and we are here to bring you an amazing comedy festival for FREE!

The Coup de Comedy is a FREE four-day comedy festival consisting of panels, workshops, and performances, available to the community.

The Coup de Comedy 2021 will be 100% online (and FREE) with a greater platform for attendees to experience amazing comedy from top comedic talent from around the world! We aim to be welcoming back some old friends to teach and play as well as featuring some of the most cutting edge artists from around the globe. This year we will again be partnering with the Global Improvisation Initiative (GII) along with Improbable to present an incredible and unique international improvisation symposium experience. Literally, guests from all over the world will be joining us to share (via workshops, panels, presentations, and open space) how improvisation impacts the world! We can't wait to share with you all of the awesome plans ahead.

This year will be our biggest festival yet with the most talented artists in the world!

What We Need & What You Get 

We're asking for $5,000 for the biggest Coup yet in order to fund:

  • Production costs of presenting a professional-grade festival and symposium online.
  • Advertising and promotion - we want as many people as possible to benefit from the Coup.
  • Bringing the talents of renowned and diverse teachers and comedians to this event free for the attendees.

The Coup de Comedy is the pride of Improv Revolution, and we're working hard to build our comedy community at UCI, in Orange County, the greater community, and now the world. Offering a quality festival for free is of utmost importance to us because we believe the joy of comedy should be accessible by all!

Every dollar of your donation here at ZotFunder goes directly towards the comedy endeavors of Improv Revolution and it is also a vote of confidence in the future of comedy. Every dollar counts, so please contribute any way you can. We are young comedians striving to match your monetary donations with our hard work.

This festival is for the comedy community at large and we want you to feel included! Even if you can't make a monetary donation, there are still valuable ways to help us out:
