This past Christmas we booked the lounge at the VTSL and brought in catering pre-show. We had the place for about 90 minutes which was enough time to enjoy a great mingling meal, a few drinks, and even start singing some Christmas Carols. We then went into the show--tickets reserved for the tables on the floor. It was a blast!... More

I've been to a lot of improv shows across the country, but this one (TripImproviser) was by far the funniest. The performers were fantastic, and even the audience participation was managed in just the right way to make it funny as well. My parents and I all loved it. Highly recommended for any Vancouver visitor!

The show we saw was called "Trip Improviser." It's a hilarious live show that multiple generations can enjoy! Always take a millennial with you whenever you travel...our son found this attraction and we're so delighted he did. Spontaneous, clever, inventive and side-splittingly funny, the show relies on audience input for much of its success. Audience members are asked about where... More

We were pleasantly surprised to discover that an adult ticket is just $15 and a senior (65 and older) is just $10, so for less than the price of a movie we were treated to a great night of laughs, jokes, and fun! And a big plus is that the theatre is on Granville Island so we went down early,... More

It's hard to find fun nights out with a young teen daughter. When I saw this Trip Advisor themed improv show I thought this would be a perfect evening out for our family. Unfortunately, it was mostly a dud. The theater's location on Granville Island was nice since we arrived early and shopped a bit before the show. We reserved... More

We apologize for the experience you had at TripImproviser. As Artistic Director, I take the lead on what programming takes place on stage and so far, we have had great success with TripImproviser. However, with improv, we ask and encourage audience suggestions for every show, therefore guaranteeing no show will ever be the same. With an always changing demographic of... More

I love the shows here; the comedians are clever and seem to have a lot of knowledge that gets built into their improv shows. I watched the Trip Improviser show and had a great time with all the ridiculousness and accents. Especially the accents.

Going to the Vancouver TheatreSports League is a guarantee for a FUN night! I've seen the TripImprovisor and the Who are you laughing at? shows. Both show were just awesome. My cheeks were hurting so much!!! Each show is gonna be different as you never know what to expect in Improv' and that's the beauty of it.

A great way to spend the evening outside of the "downtown" core. If you love watching a great comedy show totally recommend going and checking out the theatre sports shows. The shows are well priced and very entertaining. staff and performers are very friendly and make the evening a night to remember.

Always very funny. Every show is different, which makes them all hilarious. Well worth it, coming with a group is lots of fun. Way better than a wall.
