The Big City Improv Festival (BCIF) is committed to providing a safe environment, free from harassment or discrimination for all performers, volunteers, employees and audience members.
While BCIF does not have a resident venue, we follow the shared values, anti-harassment and nondiscrimination policies as the spaces the festival uses for programming: Bad Dog Theatre, Comedy Bar, The Second City and Social Capital Theatre. These policies can be found displayed at each venue and on their respective websites.
BCIF maintains a zero tolerance policy surrounding harassment and discrimination. We do not allow hate speech of any kind whether it’s directed at performers, volunteers, employees or audience members. Anyone verbalizing comments that are homophobic, misogynistic, racist, xenophobic or prejudiced will be asked to leave.
If you experience or witness harassment or discrimination please fill out the anonymous Reporting Form. Reports will be dealt with on a case by case basis.
