Vancouver Theatresports League information
The city's most popular improv group stages energetic romps – sometimes connected to themes such as Shakespeare or Game of Thrones – at this purpose-fitted theater. Whatever the theme, the approach is the same: if you're sitting near the front, expect to be picked on. The 11:15pm Friday and Saturday shows are commendably ribald. Check www.ticketstonight.ca for day-of half price tickets.
If you fancy your skills as a performer, try not to rush the stage. Theatresports offers regular drop-in Saturday afternoon workshops ($15) for those keen to give improv a try – you'll likely find out it's much harder than it looks.
