Now in its 12th year, the Vancouver International Improv Festival brings together venerable performers from around North America to delight audiences with sketch comedy and long-form improv. With 16 groups performing throughout the week, guests may choose evenings of merriment based on groups' city of origin, comedic style, or reputation for garlic breath. With a Comedy Network show in the works, Halifax-hailing Picnicface presents audiences with a unique blend of black comedy and waggish absurdity on Saturday evening, and the International Ensemble fields an all-star cast from throughout the continent on Wednesday and Saturday nights. On Thursday night, New York mainstay Chet Watkins will perform a physically and emotionally resonant improvised one-act show. All performances take place at the 180-seat Performance Works theatre on Granville Island, providing an intimate performance space within easy hand-walking distance for local audience members.
