|Staircase Improv Opens New Comedy Show on Sundays |
The Staircase is putting yet another unique twist on improvisational comedy theatre in the city. Every Sunday at 8 p.m. the simply named improv comedy show will bring a whole new level of improvisation to the Staircase stage.
The improv comedy show will be based on much more than the usual “audience suggestion” approach. Not only will all scenes be improvised, but so will the format. At the beginning of each performance the audience will be able to determine the type of show they’d like to see. Will it be a high-speed romp similar to the short-form improvisational TV show Whose Line Is It Anyway? An evening of popular culture parody? Or a performance of carefully crafted scenes based on highbrow audience suggestions? The audience calls the shots with their suggestions to help create a completely original and highly improvised show. Call it the Build-A-Bear of comedy theatre!
improv comedy show runs from Sunday, January 8 to Sunday, April 29, 2012. The 70-minute show will be set in the Staircase South building at 25 Dundurn St. North. Plenty of parking. Info: Call (905) 529-3000 or go to staircase.org.
