“One of the best festivals in the country and I’ve been to over 100 comedy festivals. Like KISS in the 70s, they take the success of every festival and put all the proceeds back into making improvements to the space and the audience experience for the following year. 10 years is a hell of a long time to do anything and the quality of the work is the proof. I’ll put Pawn Takes Queen up against any improv show in the country.”
— Brian James O'Connell, Co-Founder of The Pack Theater
Amazing shows and incredible community. I have never been to a festival where every team stuck around to watch every other team. You want to! It was supportive, super fun, and in a great space in a charming mountain town. The crew at Off the Cuff is top notch and some of the best people you could ever know. Can’t recommend it enough.
— Jessica Young, Co-Host of The Rants & Raves Podcast
I had a fantastic time! Red Rocks is easily one of my favorite festivals and it’s because of the people. The festival is so organized and well attended, not to mention welcoming! It’s a warm community that celebrates its performers, and I don’t think you can ask more than that! ❤️

So It Goes - Our Stories, Ourselves, Our Improv w/ Andel Sudik

We all have a story to tell and we each bring something unique to our improvisation; who we are, where we’re from, what we’ve done and seen and how we’ve seen it. Using storytelling and improvisation we will tell our stories; both the ones we know and the ones we are still figuring out. We will pool our collective experiences-taking note of the things that are universal and the things we can only learn from others- and use it to play. We all have a story to tell, are you ready to learn yours? Are you ready to listen? All Levels Welcome!

BIO: Anděl Sudik is a director, improviser, actor and writer based in L.A. and Chicago known for her explosive energy onstage and in the classroom as well as her experiential teaching style. She considers herself proactively pessimistic and infused all her work-no matter how abstract- with organic honesty and emotional grounding. She was born in Chicago, raised in California and moved back to Chicago at the tender age of 17 to study comedy and improvisation. She is a faculty member of the Second City Training Center programs; A-E, Conservatory, Health and Wellness, Advanced and Teen and Youth program and has taught her workshops all over the world(The Improv Shop St. Louis, Monkey Business Institute Madison, OLLIE Northwestern, CLIP U of C, Bucharest, Dublin, OKC, The Improv Retreat, WI, The New Movement NOLA, Iceland, Bulgaria etc.) As an actor she is an alum of Boom Chicago in Amsterdam, the Second City Touring Company and performed in the Jeff Award award winning Second City ETC revue “We’re All in this Room Together.” She has also produced countless successful two-man shows as Arch&Anděl(The Public House, Annoyance, OoB Festival) and improvisational experiences(Obits a theatrical experience exploring the lives of those that have passed) as well as directed in Chicago at Second City, iO and the Annoyance. Anděl’s deep well of performance experience and her hands on, in depth work within the disciplines of long form improvisation, short form, sketch and theater make her a thoroughly well-rounded and open minded conduit for art, creation, polish and playfulness. She values time efficiency, and recognizes that the most powerful thing we bring to the table is us. Whatever we are. She does not update her website enough. YesAndel.Com
