Hi there,
Thanks so much for taking a moment to tell us about your evening. While I wish we could take credit for the wonderful time you had, I believe you have mistaken us for Arts Club Theatre, who are currently presenting the musical Avenue Q near by. We will pass on your kudos, but meanwhile if you are ever back on beautiful Granville Island we would love to have you here for a show!
Best,
Sarah

Met up with some friends for a meal and drinks at the Sand Bar (excellent on all counts) on Granville Island and we decided to go and see the improv. Now please let me start by saying that I love comedy clubs, I love improv and I have a great sense of humour (if I say so myself). So we were all looking forward to what this had to offer.

The plan is that there is two teams of three, who each 'randomly' ask the audience for certain subject matters. They then act out an improved sketch.

What then transpired was a 'hook and bait' scenario where the subject matters that were randomly chosen were the ones that the teams had already rehearsed.

The only redeeming factor was that it only cost $10 each.

Thank Andy G

Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. We are always so pleased that the quality of the scenes are high enough to seem impossible to be improvised, and as a fellow comedy lover I completely appreciate your awe. The show is, however, completely improvised...so, I guess that makes you Lord Lucan,(you should know some people are looking for you).
Thanks again for joining us in our newest show, and please get in touch if you would like to come back again and see how different each show can be :).
Best,
Sarah

A group of family members and I went to see this show, Amazing Improv Race, in early July and LOVED it. The show is based on The Amazing Race, with three teams doing various improv challenges. We had children with us ranging in age from 11 to 15 and the kids found the show very entertaining. We laughed so hard. The early show is "family friendly" so totally appropriate for children. There was a bit of audience participation, a few skits involved a volunteer from the audience, but no pressure was put on anyone to participate. Being a "race", the audience got to vote on the winner of each round. The cost of the tickets was very cheap and we definitely got our money's worth! I highly recommend this show when you visit Granville Island!

This was so much fun. Had a great time. Went to see the 9:30 TheatreSports show and decided, on a whim, to stay and watch the late 11:15 show too. Our favorite experience from our day trip to Granville Island. Laughed and laughed. The cast had a great time and so did we.

VTSL always puts on great shows. The early show is great for family and the late show is usually an adults only event. If you attend the early show you always get a heavy discount to stay for the next shows and it's fun to see just how different each show is. Even with the exact same cast and theme the show is never the same!

Hi Donny, thanks for taking the time to write a review and share those kind words. We couldn't agree more that no two shows are the same, and are so happy that great audience members like you get a chance to have new experiences every time they decide to join us! Thanks again, and please let us know if you're ever back :).
