They say jazz musicians save their best stuff for when they play with each other — for those moments deep into the night, amid the empty glasses and lingering haze of smoke, when the greatest praise comes from one’s peers.

The same can be said of the Comedy Festival’s improv jam. This is when some of the country’s best and brightest really let their best stuff shine, the stuff that can only come out when they are trying to get the other guys, who themselves make a living making other people laugh, laugh.

And the best part is that you can see it all. The line-up is decided shortly before the show, but we can promise you this: Be prepared. You’ll likely get laughing cramps. You might even barf a little.
