Essay Contest

If you like winning things, improv things, we’ve got a 48 hour contest going right now! The first improv wins contest is a call for essays on the topic “Why I do Improv.” You decide the length and slant and send it to We want to hear about the electrifying show that inspired you, the guy you had a crush on but then you realized you really had a crush on improv, or your beautiful thoughts about comedy as a medium for social change — whatever makes you love this strange artform and how you discovered it!

The prize, because cool contests have a prize, is either 1) Free Admission to this weekend’s Improv Wins Conference or 2) A free ticket to any upcoming New Movement special event show in 2012 in either Austin, New Orleans, or Houston. 

We are looking forward to reading your thoughts about your passion and posting them here on!
