MEET OUR 2023 HEADLINER: WILL HINES & JIM WOODS
We’re delighted that Will Hines and Jim Woods, longtime improvisers from the Upright Citizens Brigade in NYC and LA, will be our 2023 District Improv Festival Headliners! You won’t want to miss these two incredible performers as they put on an unforgettable long-form improv show. Based off a single suggestion from the audience, Hines and Woods will create a series of comedic scenes, featuring dynamic stage pictures, gentle arguing, ludicrous propositions, and logically tenuous situations. There may also be some inaccurate celebrity impressions.
HINES & WOODS - "IMPROV WORKS!"
Will has been teaching long-form improv since 2004 at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, at both its New York and LA branches.

He's also the founder of the website, World’s Greatest Improv School.
Jim Woods has an incredible improv resume. He's studied and performed extensively at: UCB, Boom Chicago, iO Chicago, and North Carolina ComedySportz.
