Tyler Labine - Friday, June 28
Tyler was most recently seen in the feature film Flyboys, the story of a group of young Americans who volunteered for the French military before the United States entered World War I, and became the country's first fighter pilots. In The CW drama Reaper, Labine plays Sock, the quintessential slacker who enthusiastically aids his best friend Sam (Bret Harrison) in the hunt for escaped souls from Hell.

Labine was born in Brampton, Ontario, and as a child moved with his family to Vancouver, British Columbia. He began his acting career in local theater, quickly landing a number of small television roles. Labine subsequently starred opposite Nathan Lane in Trixie, Cybill Shepherd in Marine Life and Tim Robbins in AntiTrust. Movie audiences are also familiar with Labine from his unforgettable role in My Boss's Daughter, with Ashton Kutcher. Labine's other notable film appearances include working opposite David Bowie in Mr. Rice's Secret and the feature film The Zero Sum, with Even Bremmer. Labine also relished the challenge of portraying John Belushi in the television movie "Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of 'Mork & Mindy.'"

Labine's television credits also include a starring role in the suspenseful drama Invasion, where he gave a memorable performance as Dave Groves, a man who harbored conspiracy theories, and as ADA Jonathan Winant in Boston Legal.

Off camera, Labine pursues his musical and creative talents. In 2004, Tyler produced the film Everyone, which won the Best Film Award at the Montreal Film Festival. Labine recently submitted his new mockumentary film, Extreme Walking, which he executive produced, starred in, wrote and co-directed, to film festivals.

Here’s the truth - improvisers are natural fabricators of stories and characters - they were born that way. But can they really be easily deceived by a few good stories?

Vancouver TheatreSports™ League presents PANTS ON FIRE, an improvised comedy show featuring special guests ready to tell tales. Whether they’re the truth or just a lie is anyone’s guess! Along with the help of the show host and the lie-detecting senses of the audience, VTSL mainstage players will sleuth their way to the truth and see if they can outwit the guest. Once the players have separated the truth from the lies, they’ll improvise a series of sketches based on the guest’s stories.

It’s 90 minutes of fast paced improv comedy where you never know where the truth ends and the lies begin.
