This is the "Fall Classic" of competitive improv, held at UCBT-NY every November and hosted and organized by Pat Baer.

Rules

Teams of 3 people enter the contest, and 21 teams are chosen to compete in preliminary rounds held in November, Thursdays at 11 PM in the Cagematch time slot.

Each week, 7 pre-selected teams and one team made of randomly drawn audience members compete in seven-minute rounds. The top teams advance to the semifinals held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The semifinal rounds consist of ten-minute rounds, culminating that evening with the finals.

Trivia

Some teams that first organized and performed for the 3 on 3 and continued to evolve into highly successful performing groups include I Eat Pandas, C, C and C Improv Factory, and Death by Roo-Roo (in a 3-person incarnation).

The plug thread for the 3 on 3 on the IRC generally evolves (or devolves) into a series of nonsensical bit questions for Pat Baer to answer, which he does in his trademark straightforward fashion.
