Watch out Vancouver as we light a fuse to Vancouver’s comedy scene – shattering stereotypes and sparking a lot of laughs. Firecracker! features an all-star cast of female improvisers. It’s a different improv experience with an all-female cast, resulting in stories told from a uniquely female perspective. The ensuing comedy is inventive, unpredictable and uproarious.
Through the medium of improv comedy, Firecracker! will explore what it means to be a woman in Vancouver with audience suggestions inspiring the improvisers’ wicked wit. The inaugural shows will honour a special female guest whose stories of their life, work and achievements will inspire the performance.
Subsequent performances may not always include special guest. However, all will celebrate the fun and foibles of female life in the early 21st Century Vancouver. As in all VTSL productions, audience suggestions about the show’s theme will play an integral role in determining and driving the improvised action.The resulting 60mins of improv comedy is inventive, unpredictable and uproarious.

Perhaps the funnest, most-laugh-out-loud part of summer 2016 has got to be…Firecracker!... it's guaranteed you'll get a great workout exercising the laugh muscles, have lots of fun, and discover some world class comedy…I can’t wait to see another Firecracker! explode."
What I really loved about the performance was the blend of unique voices. Everyone brought something different to the stage. I was taken aback by how powerful these women appeared on stage and immediately thought: yes this is what women should be doing, and improv is a great medium to bring it all together... The show ended with an on stage YouTube make up tutorial and this was the funniest thing I have even seen happen live."
Great fun! Drinks bought at the bar can be taken into the theatre. Good audience interaction, affordable entertainment."
