Team Registration Form



The 2019 Atlanta Improv LEAGUE is BACK and open for submissions.

The competition will be made up of no more than 24 teams competing over 10 weeks for a grand prize of $2,000, a season run of shows at Village Theatre AND the title of ATLANTA IMPROV LEAGUE CHAMPION!

Additional prize money for 2nd place = $300, 3rd = $150 and 23rd = $75 NO, that is not a typo. Whoever ends the regular season in 23rd place still wins $75.

Starting on Wednesday, June 19 at noon you can register for the ATLIL at  Each team will be required to pay a $75 LEAGUE entry fee. Registration will close on June 28, or once 24 teams have been selected. Teams not selected will receive their entry fees back.

The LEAGUE regular season will take place over a 10-week period starting on Thursday, July 11. During the regular season, each team will compete in 8 shows. The LEAGUE nights will be Thursday through Sunday. From September 26-October 5 (one week after the regular season), the teams will battle in a playoff style tournament. All teams will make the playoffs and will be ranked by their standings in the regular season.

Actors will only be allowed to perform on a maximum of two teams and will need to designate a preferred team or “Home Team”. This designation must be shown on the team roster at time of registration. If at any time during the competition both of the actor’s teams compete head-to-head during a show, the actor may perform with their “Home Team” only and NOT as a member of the other team.

Each LEAGUE show will be one hour in length and consist of three teams, each performing a 20-minute set.  At the end of each hour-long LEAGUE show, the audience will vote for their favorite team. Teams will then be awarded first, second and third place points.  Each team’s weekly ranking will be based on their overall win / loss record, total points earned and head-to-head records against other teams. For a full breakdown of the scoring and points system, see the Atlanta Improv LEAGUE Rules document.

LEAGUE shows will take place at The Village Theatre only.  Again, shows will take place on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Again this year, we will be offering a season pass for all shows.  A patron may pay $75 at any point in the season, and they will receive a season pass allowing them to attend and vote in any show all season long excluding the playoffs.  In addition, all improv LEAGUE actors will be permitted to attend all shows that are not sold out, but the actors will not be eligible to vote.

To apply, please fill out the registration form and submit your payment.
