Vancouver TheatreSports League mingles the adrenaline rush of athletic events with the dramatic drollery of improv comedy to produce sidesplitting shows that are crafted on the spot for 60 minutes of audience-integrated outlandishness. Audience earthlings yell out suggestions as the multitalented improvisers ignite games and challenge themselves to bring laughter to your tears. Scared Scriptless's comedic members cultivate the genre's most admired styles while pushing envelopes into feral territory previously only trekked by wild yard gnomes and hyena nightmares.
The Global ComedyFest corrals some of the best and brightest comedians on the international circuit into Vancouver for a marathon of laughs, fun, and moderately uncomfortable first dates. Big names such as zany former MTV staple Tom Green perform alongside up-and-comers in more than 30 performances throughout the festival. Eschew the everyday monodimensional comedy with a combination stand-up and comedy 3-D video show featuring Canada's own Reza Peyk, Jy Harris, and Gary Fong, or opt for a night of “it’s funny because it’s true” laughs at the Gerry Dee show. The Edge of the Fest performance pushes the festival’s edgiest artists to the limits of social acceptability, while the Best of the Fest showcases top comedians such as Greg Behrendt and Peter Chao.
