JOIN VANCOUVER THEATRESPORTS LEAGUE AND COMEDY TROUPES FROM AROUND THE WORLD AS THEY THROWDOWN FOR GLOBAL IMPROV SUPREMACY.
Just when you thought global tensions couldn’t get any higher, the Vancouver TheatreSports League’s Throwdown – International TheatreSports Festival will pit nation against nation in comedy combat.
Beginning this week, local improv teams will compete in a round-robin tournament to determine who (along with some Canadian reinforcements from Montreal) will defend Vancouver against improv invaders from the US, Norway, and India.
From February 1st to 8th, you can check out five local teams battle it out at shows at 7:30 and 9:15 pm. Once a local winner has been crowned, they will join the five visiting teams for an international improv throwdown beginning February 8th and culminating in a winner-takes-all blowout battle on February 14th.
As far as international conflicts go, we’re expecting a peaceful resolution here. After all, laughter builds bridges – not walls – between nations.
