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.
