On April 16 finalists of F.I.S.T. go head-to-head at The Source to determine who will take home the 2011 crown (and bragging rights) in the Fighting Improv Smackdown Tournament.

Start your night at 8 pm with a reunion show featuring the 2010 champs, Meanwhile Back at the Ranch, with Jackie as a special guest. The competition heats up at 9 PM with the bronze level contenders (candidates pending this week’s round-up) with special guest onesixtyone. The final match is set to occur at 11 pm with highly revered guest Commonwealth .

Each show is $10. If you’ve yet to attend a F.I.S.T. “smackdown,” I would not pass up one of the final chances to see old talent and/or have a stake in determining 2011’s funniest improv troupe — nevermind laugh hard along the way.
