WTF - What the Fun! Saturday September 29 2018 at 11:15 PM

The Improv Centre
× End your week with laughs at WTF – What the Fun! With the aid of audience suggestions, WTF takes its inspiration from the quirky stories found in the weekly news and on-line. Recent gems found on the news wires include: “Fish fall from the sky in Northern Mexico,” “Shark nearly chokes to death on moose, is saved by Canadian bystanders,” and “Goat refuses to leave Sask. Tim Hortons, gets ‘arrested’ by RCMP.” Part of the show features ‘re-interpretations’ of fun times had by audience members by adding our own humorous and unpredictable spin to their Instagram photos or written anecdotes. Join us for late night comedy that never sleeps Fridays and Saturdays at 11:15 p.m.

In MIA, two Improv Directors go head-to-head as they put a team of improvisers through a set of grueling and hilarious improv formats.
Throughout, as in all VTS improv, the audience is called upon to assist the action with their suggestions and shouted encouragement. No one knows what will happen next in these edge-of-your-seat matches.
