It's where we as MTS get to go geek-out at our favorite semi-famous semi-professional improv crushes. We also get to see other troupes and improvisers our own age, older, and much older.
People from all across the country flock to festivals like this one because it's awesome to see someone play with a totally different style, like Johnstone's Who, What, Where vs. Del Close's "The Rules" vs. San Francisco's "Play it slow" vs. Canada's "Play it really slow" vs. DSI's "Play it as fast and ballsy as possible."
Then, on top of that, we get to take workshops with these crazy peeps and get inside their heads and stuff. (Awesome!).
So that, in a nutshell, is BBIF/BBCF, and it is so good.
