The San Francisco Improv Festival is proud to announce Barbara Scott as the first-ever recipient of the SFIF “Outstanding Contribution to the Improv Community” (OCIC) Award.

An improviser for over 25 years, Barbara Scott is a member of BATS Improv and a founding member of True Fiction Magazine. She has led master improv classes at Stanford University, BATS Improv, Full Circle Productions, the AFTRA Conservatory, SF Opera Center, Dell’Arte School of Physical Theatre, The Funny Women Fest in Chicago, and at many international improv festivals.

This exceptional career, in addition to her specialization in and work with song improvisation and her incredible skills as a performer, makes Barbara Scott the San Francisco Improv Festival’s first-ever OCIC Award recipient.

The OCIC Award is the San Francisco Improv Festival’s new annual recognition for outstanding achievement in improvisational theater. OCIC awardees participate and curate an evening of improvisational theater, after an awards presentation, during the San Francisco Improv Festival, held every August at the Eureka Theater.  This years’ line-up includes surprise guests that have worked with Barbara throughout her career and interviewer, improv aficionado William Hall (BATS Improv, Fratelli Bologna).
