Improv comedy shows, unlike criminal-court proceedings and open-heart surgeries, encourage people in the room to shout out suggestions. Explore the extemporaneous with today's Groupon: for $5, you get two tickets to "Improv on the Ave" from Rapid Fire Theatre at Avenue Theatre (a $10 value).
One of Edmonton's improvisation mainstays since 1981, Rapid Fire Theatre immerses audiences in alternative theatre games and comedic performances while producing notable alumni comedians and comediennes. On the last Thursday of every month, Rapid Fire hosts "Improv on the Ave," launching armadas of eclectic action and wordplay in comedic combat across Avenue Theatre's 1,500-square-foot stage. The ever-changing vaudevillian venture blends the moment-manipulating talents of such troupes as University Improv Group, DropCloth Improv, and Bull-Script in its off-the-cuff improvisations. Each show is general admission, with audiences ushered into the theatre starting at 7 p.m. to allow time for seat selection and folding any discarded programs into origami dates.
