About This Competition

The Make Up Party debuted in 2015 in the DC Improv lounge. People were given a subject one hour before the start of the event, then scrambled to get their performances ready to go. It was very cool to watch -- but it's also VERY tough to get stand-up and sketch performances ready in one hour, starting from scratch.

The revamped edition debuted in fall 2017. Now, performers know the theme well in advance, and show up at the Improv ready to rock. Teams can be one to six people, and the performance that makes the audience laugh the hardest gets a cash prize.
