We Have Audtions!
Every month DBI brings you the best short-form style improv. But there is more than one type of improv … So DBI is doing limited run long-form improv projects too. Unlike our main ensemble, players who audition for these long-form projects will only have to commit to rehearsals once a week for a couple months, with at least two 30-minute performances.
For info on auditions, go here

We Travel!
Death By Improv has taken the act on the road a few times, having been selected to perform at the Richmond Improv Festival (2008 and 2009), the Gainesville Improv Festival (2009, 2010, and 2014), the Boston Comedy Arts Festival (2013), and at the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival (2011, 2012, and 2016). And members of DBI have trained at a variety of theaters and improv camps in NYC, Philly, Austin, Ireland, and more.
