Monday-Tuesday, Feb. 6-7Third Annual Orlando Improv Festival

When it comes to improv comedy, you should always expect the unexpected. It’s part of the performance process, and most often, it’s the element that creates the most laughs. Mark Baratelli, organizer for the third annual Orlando Improv Fest, throws a few curveballs this time around with a venue change to downtown’s creative space Urban ReThink and a new hyperlocal lineup of comedy troupes. As part of the month-long ArtsFest, the two-day funny affair spotlights familiar faces Absent Minded Improv and Fringe fave “Doctor Whose Line Is it Anyway?” while bringing to light a few dark horses with “geeky improv” by the VaudeVillains, Matt Gervia’s Power2Improv (often seen at Orlando Public Library) and Random Processes, who perform under the mantra “Five guys! No burgers!” – Aimee Vitek
