We’re growing and we need your help! The Improv Embassy is a registered non-profit, founded and run by volunteers, dedicated to supporting, growing and building a community in Ottawa for improv and sketch comedy.
We’ve had a fantastic first few months producing sold-out shows, getting dozens of people up on stage for the first time, and making new friends in our many classes. And as we continue to get bigger and prepare for the 2017 Ottawa Improv Festival, we’ll need your help to make it a success!
Below are a few of the positions we’re looking for. Commitments range from a few hours a month to a few hours a week. You will get training in new skills, discounts on classes and shows, and the chance to be an integral part of our creative community.
Read the list below then head over to this form and let us know what interests you (and email us with any questions). We want to hear from you by Sunday, Dec. 18. We’ll reply by the end of the month.
