In 2018, in conjunction with ImprovBoston, the world’s first Vintage Improv Festival was produced in Boston. The intellectual property of Miki Manting, the one-day Festival manifested as a tag onto the end of the Boston Improv Festival. It drew over 50 experienced solo vintage improvisers and existing Troupes from points as far away as Austin, Oklahoma City, Sarasota, northern-most Maine, Detroit, and the Twin Cities. Selected Vintage Improv Troupes included The Early Bird Special of Sarasota Florida, HATS from Hadley Massachusetts, and Elderberry Jam Improv. Additionally two duos, The Grown Ups from Oklahoma City, and In Our Prime from Austin Texas performed at this historic event. A longstanding short-form troupe called Kamikaze from Montpelier Maine and a number of brave solo improvisers were also selected to perform in specially curated teams for what turned out to be a packed Main Stage Theater at ImprovBoston.
