We understand some of you may have no clue what improv comedy is; we were also in your shoes not so long ago. We will do our best to give you a brief explanation so you can understand just how entertaining the Gatlinburg Improv Fest has the potential to be. In short, improv comedy is comedy “on the fly,” comedy in response to the environment. There is little to no scripting in improv comedy, and if done well, it is absolutely hilarious.

The multiple-award winning “Six Guitars” by Chase Padgett features Padgett taking on the personality of six different guitar players, each with their own voice, personality, and guitar-playing style. The result is a knee-slapping performance guaranteed to bring tears of laughter from the audience’s eyes.
