Brand New Stage!

improv comedy show is a comedy show that is improvised. The improv comedy show is more improvised than any other show you will ever see. Not only will all the scenes be improvised but so will the format. At the beginning of each show the audience will be able to choose the style of show they wish to see. Will it be a game laden high speed romp like Who’s Line Is It Anyways without any editing? Will it be an evening of quietly crafted scenes based on high brow audience suggestions? Some formats will be limited by resources, but the suggestions for style certainly will not be. improv comedy show is the Build-A-Bear of comedy theatre. It is not called Build-A-Bear theatre for legal reasons.

improv comedy show runs from Sun-8-January to Sun-29-April-2012.

We will be located in Hamilton’s newest Improv Comedy Theatre at 25 Dundurn St. North (Staircase South). Park in any of the three Staircase parking lots. Call 905.529.3000 for more information.

Shows start at 8pm and last approximately 70 minutes (starting January 8th).
