Support Us

We are a registered charitable organization dedicated to showcasing the art of improvisation to local and visiting audiences in Vancouver.

Safety and consent are of the utmost importance to the work we produce.

Improv relies on trust and communication between performers – and establishing clear boundaries is key to building this trust. We’ve partnered with Principal Intimacy Professionals to provide training for our ensemble to use consent-based practices, learn intimacy choreography, as well as mental health and closure techniques.

I cannot express how much my boyfriend and I enjoy coming here for date night! It’s always a fun time and my stomach and face hurt from laughing so hard! Such an amazing improv team!

First visit last weekend with my Vancouver based daughter, loved it…back in the UK now plotting my return already. Professional and funny, great value for money and perfect location.

A little gem in the city. Frequented prior to the pandemic, and just revisited for the first time since – just the best. Hard to find a better source of laughter. Been to improv in other cities and nothing seems to compare to Vancouver.
