WTF – What the Fun, 2018
(Vancouver, BC) — End your week with laughs at WTF – What the Fun! – the newest late, late-night show from Vancouver TheatreSports (VTS).
With the aid of audience suggestions, WTF takes its inspiration from the bizarre stories found in the weekly news and turns them into edgy comedy. Recent gems found on the news wires/ internet include: “Fish fall from the sky in Northern Mexico,” “Shark nearly chokes to death on moose, is saved by Canadian bystanders,” and “Goat refuses to leave Sask. Tim Hortons, gets ‘arrested’ by RCMP.”
We can all attest to seeing weird stories such as these pop up in our news feeds. Who hasn’t felt the compulsion to open one to see if the headline is really true? The stories never turn out the way you expect them to and that is part of their fascination.
Another segment of the show features ‘reinterpretations’ of fun times had by audience members when our on-stage improvisers put their spin to Instagram photos or written anecdotes provided by the audience.
Who knows what will happen when VTS’ talented players bring their lightning fast wits to add to the scenario? What we can tell you is that it will result in totally unpredictable hilarity and cutting comedy.
Join Vancouver TheatreSports for late-night comedy that never sleeps Fridays and Saturdays at 11:15 p.m. starting Friday June 15 at The Improv Centre on Granville Island.
