Merry Kiss-Mas - Improvised Parody Saturday December 8 2018 at 8:00 PM

The Improv Centre
× Our Friday & Saturday night shows are now later! This performance will begin promptly at 8pm

VTS Channel presents Merry Kiss-mas - an Improvised Parody romantic comedy that celebrates all the inane clichés and funny awkward moments you’d expect to see in any popular TV holiday-themed special or films like Love Actually. The improvised ‘plot’ and characters are driven by suggestions from you, our audience. This show is about celebrating those amazing movies we love to watch at Christmas whether we admit it or not – you know the ones - the super cheese-y, super fun, super formulaic warm-hearted shows. We all know there’s a happy ending, what happens before that is where the fun and surprises are found.

Give yourself the gift of laughter this season and join us – it’s way better than receiving a lump of coal.

Scared Scriptless is a show with ‘edge.’ Similar to going to a jazz club, Scared Scriptless allows our improv virtuosos to jam with one another – honing their razor-sharp improv chops on new games and formats; riffing on suggestions from the audience and taking them to unanticipated heights of comedy. This is snappy, quick-witted improv at its best.
