Never had so much fun in Vancouver. There's times that you'll laugh in Vancouver and there's times that you'll REALLY laugh in Vancouver. It's all in the creative performance. This place is alive, creative, super intelligent, talented. Never fails to entertain, I've been coming here for really good laughs since 1997. The talent of the performers is simply unequalled anywhere in the city.

Girlfriend & I had a date night with dinner on Granville Island and thought let's give TheaterSports a try ... was very nervous going in as I thought I'd be put on the spot or dragged up on stage ... I was nervous for nothing! The host and cast were great (and HILARIOUS), crowd participation was encouraged but totally voluntarily, and we ended up laughing for 2 hours straight! ... Highly, highly recommend taking an evening out to enjoy the wonderful artists.

Going to an improv show here is worth it exactly 100% of the time. Venue is great and has a very nice layout. Not too big, it retains a cozy atmosphere while having high ceilings, great views from any seat, a big stage and decent acoustics. It's a good night out for a date or a group of friends. Pretty limited bar, but enough to drink. My suggestion is (this was on very good advice from a friend) go early.

My favourite date night activity! Always a new and exciting show and you might even recognize some of the improvisers on a few tv projects. They also have a great discount ticket deal if you want to stay for another showing the night you go.

The Vancouver TheatreSports League puts on shows that are both entertaining and so good that you don't realize how technically impressive they are until you really, really start thinking about it ... The venue is stylish and very well done. From the bar with it's waterside patio to the big stage with it's iconic table seats, everything is very well taken care of and the staff is incredibly friendly.
