Click here for tickets and info for Halloween Howl – our special Halloween event on Sat, Oct.26

Whether it’s with a group of ghoulfriends getting together for a night out, or a romantic date, we dare you to laugh this October with its spirited line-up of Halloween-themed shows October 22-31. Aptly named Spooktober; this limited-run seasonal celebration of all things eerie features three different shows and a very special event you’ll be dying to attend.

Monster Matches pits teams of monsters against one another in a series of ‘head-to-headless short-form scenarios to see who eeeks out the most laughs. Will the werewolves defeat the witches, or zombies overcome the vampires? In this fast-paced roller-ghoster, the winner is determined by audience judges. Monster Matches runs Tuesday/Wednesday October 22/23 and October 29/30 at 7:30 p.m. and Friday, October 25 at 9:30 p.m.

Cult Fiction – Everyone Laugh Together is framed as a documentary. Hosted by an investigative journalist; the players utilize audience suggestions to spin a spell-binding tale behind the cult including the core cult belief and some of its unique traits – the more ridiculous the suggestions, the more inventive the action and louder the laughter. Cult Fiction runs Thursday/Friday October 24/25 and Thursday October 31 through Saturday, November 2 at 7:30 p.m.

Kreepy Kitty sees the action of the show directed by an evil kitty from its window perch. This is one fur-midable kitty with plenty of cat-titude whose claw-ver commands lead to plenty of comedic hiss-terics. Kreepy Kitty plays Thursday, October 24 and 31 at 9:15 and Saturday, October 26 at 11:15.

Halloween Howl is a special Halloween event happening on Saturday, Oct.26. (Doors open at 6:30 p.m., show starts at right at 7:30 p.m.). The evening features costumed performers in two Monster Matches where all but the most cunning ghoul will perish. Guests can have their palm read by Madame Improvo or visit Poe Corner, where the spectre of a long-dead poet will ‘amaze you with improvised POEms that The Raven itself would find beguiling. Mix and mingle with Denizens of the Dark (roving performers) who’ll delight you with their tricky antics and there will be a Costume Parade with prizes for the winners. Click here to learn more.

During the 10 days of Spooktober, the Improv Centre is transformed with haunting décor into an eerie sepulchre worthy of any Demon or night-loving Vampire. You’ll also find spooktacular specials on potions and poisons at VTS’ Neil Macrae Bar and Lounge. This is one instance where you’ll want to drink the Killer Kool-Aid or indulge in a Creepy Kitty.

...my group and I had attended the Halloween show on Saturday... We all had a fantastic time! I knew to expect a good time, but my expectations were far exceeded. Per usual, the show went off without a hitch and was a great form of entertainment for a lot of the improv virgins I brought along with me.

These guys are hilarious!! I've been a few times, and seen a few different shows- they do battles, themes and beginners; but each show is different. Great for a night out with mates or a first date ice breaker. Definitely worth checking out!
