The Fictionals - Vancouver
The Fictionals Comedy Co. have been entertaining Vancouver and beyond since 2010. Their award-winning brand of improv pushes the boundaries of comedy, including hilarious collaborations with burlesque dancers, slam poets, and professional wrestlers. The Fictionals are excited to present Ask Me Anything live at VIIF 2016. Let’s find love in a funny place.
J Names - Portland
If you were to make a list of the top 10 improvisors in Portland, Coinsidentally (or not so coincidentally) most of the names are J Names. Breaking records at Friday Night Fights and Impressing crowds all around Portland, J Names brings all the “J” talent together from the entire Portland Improv Scene in to one super group. Featuring Jed Arkley, John Breen, Jay Flewelling, Justin Himes, Jenn Hunter, Jess Lee, Jake Michels and Janet Scanlon.
One Lions - Calgary
This time they’re waiting for you. What if Beckett wrote Waiting for Godot on the back of a napkin an hour before the premiere and cast two knuckleheads to star in the show? This might give you some idea of what you’re about to see. One Lions are joined by special guests to present their improvised interpretation of Samuel Beckett’s absurdist masterpiece. They answer the big questions. What does it mean to be human? Does God exist? And what’s the deal with airline food?
The Sunday Service - Vancouver
Favouring discovery over structure, the group builds, demolishes, and builds again an absurd patchwork of scenes and stories. Using strong narratives and character work to ground their set, the group dips in and out of meta-comedy, rock opera, word play and even slapstick shtick.
Their high energy and commitment to comedy carries the audience through a kaleidoscopic trip; watching scenes barrel into tangents and stories smash together to create a piece that holds the collective spirit to its highest regard, and puts a big ol’ goofy shoe down to show everyone they’re not so serious!
Amie and Kristen Show - New York City / Philadelphia
Best friends, total babes, and improvisers Amie Roe and Kristen Schier perform an organic improv comedy show that’s been featured in theater festivals throughout the United States and Canada (eh!). The Amie and Kristen Show/Kristen and Amie Show is part girl friend hang, part social commentary, and part hero’s journey.
Sexy Baby - New York City
SEXY BABY is a house team of The Magnet Theater, performing every week in New York City. A mash-up of 8 veteran improvisers, SEXY BABY is known for its explosive energy, fast-paced form, and high waving freak flag. Burn your flannel, children. The time has come to kill your inhibitions and give in to the hedonistic chaos that is: SEXY BABY.
