Pop Idle is a show that lampoons the current television “star search” phenomenon and does it in purely Vancouver TheatreSports® League style.
Five improvisers bring ready-made characters to the stage and are put through a rigorous improvised audition program by an acerbic host. Each improviser pre-selects their character and style of singer that they wish to portray but that is all the preparation they are allowed. They are then forced to out sing, out dance and out perform each other in song styles that they audience chooses. After each round of songs, one of the would-be stars is asked to leave the stage by the audience until we have our ultimate “Pop Idle” for the night.
