2018 Year in Review

End the year with lots of laughs as VTS's quick-witted improvisers find the funny in the important and not so important events of 2018.

2018 Year in Review

Laugh Out the Old Year and Welcome the New

Elections, legalized pot, climate change, ‘affordable’ housing (or lack thereof), internet hacks, and perennial Vancouver favourite – bike lanes, dominated the headlines in 2018. Bid farewell to all this doom and gloom as Vancouver TheatreSports’™ 2018 Year in Review takes an improvised look at these top stories and adds a much-needed comedic perspective as we prepare for the coming year. No event is safe from ridicule and, as always, the scenarios will be based on audience suggestions challenging our quick-witted improvisers to create instant, unscripted comedy. While much of 2018 was no laughing matter, our cast will have you crying tears of joy at their in-the-moment reinterpretations of the news that was, and you’ll leave the theatre feeling lighter and happier.

Ring in 2019 with a smile on your face. Regular 2018 Year In Review performances run from Wednesday, December 26 through Sunday, December 30, with a special set of New Year’s Eve performances on Monday, December 31. Book your tickets for the 11:15 p.m. show on December 31 and enjoy party favours and a complimentary glass of bubbly as we welcome all the hilarity 2019 is sure to offer.

Hilarious. Booked in for New Year's Eve 9.30pm special, was worried we wouldn't understand some of the jokes or news references -- being from overseas -- but that couldn't be further from the truth. Brilliantly planned and executed. My daughter, who is 12, laughed so hard. It was fantastic, highly, highly recommend.

Great fun! Drinks bought at the bar can be taken into the theatre. Good audience interaction, affordable entertainment.

I’ve been to over 30 shows over the past 7 years I can’t recall a single time I didn’t almost tinkle in my pants from laughing so hard. This place is beyond amazing.
