Vancouver TheatreSports™ Presents Canadian Comedy Icon Colin Mochrie
(Vancouver, BC) – Colin Mochrie, Vancouver TheatreSports™ (VTSL) alumnus, and star of Whose Line Is It Anyway, returns this May to Vancouver TheatreSports™ for three laugh-packed performances – Thursday, May 24 and Saturday, May 26 at The Improv Centre at 7:30 p.m.; and Friday, May 25 at The Vogue Theatre also at 7:30 p.m.
COLIN UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL – Thursday, May 24 | 7:30pm | The Improv Centre
The first performance takes place at VTSL’s home theatre on Granville Island – The Improv Centre. This is your chance to see Colin up close and catch every expressive comedic nuance in an intimate space. This very special evening includes two improv sets starring Colin, along with members of the VTSL ensemble, followed by a Q&A session where audience members ask the questions. There are also a very limited number of tickets (only 40) for an exclusive, post-performance reception where guests will personally meet, and socialize with Colin at The Improv Centre’s Neil Macrae Bar & Lounge. That evening the Bar will be introducing ‘The Colin’ – a cocktail specially designed in Colin’s honour based on his favourite alcoholic beverage – red wine. Ticketing details can be found at www.vtsl.com.
THE COLIN MOCHRIE EXPERIENCE – Friday, May 25 | 7:30pm | The Vogue Theatre*
Friday night sees Colin take the stage at The Vogue Theatre, located in the heart of Vancouver’s Entertainment District. This performance once again features the improv master with some of your favourite VTSL players in a free-wheeling improv laugh-fest. *Tickets for the performance at The Vogue Theatre go on sale Monday, April 16 at 10:00am at www.vtsl.com.
COLIN AND FRIENDS – Saturday, May 26 | 7:30pm | The Improv Centre
On Saturday, Colin returns to The Improv Centre, VTSL’s home on Granville Island. Seating only 186 people in a mixture of cabaret and theatre seats, The Improv Centre is a very welcoming experience where every seat is a great seat. Colin will be joined on stage by improvisers from the Vancouver TheatreSports™ ensemble for an evening that is sure to tickle your funny bone. The Improv Centre is fully-licensed and guests are welcome to take their beverages with them into the theatre to enjoy during the show. Ticketing details can be found at www.vtsl.com.
All performances benefit the Colin Mochrie Scholarship Fund at VTSL’s theatre school, The Improv Comedy Institute. Established in 2014, the scholarship provides assistance to those wishing to study improv but are unable to do so because of financial barriers.
Also of note – it is rumoured that another VTSL alum and Whose Line Is It Anyway star (whose initials are R.S.) may join Colin on stage in a surprise appearance for one or two of these performances. While we can’t guarantee it, it has happened before, most recently this past January at VTSL’s Throwdown Festival.
