Santa Survivor Sat Dec 15th at 8pm

Santa Survivor is an improv comedy parody of the infamous Survivor reality TV series where Santa’s elves out wit, out play, and out laugh each other — North Pole style.

Come on out to Santa Survivor and using tribes, challenges and immunity, you can help Santa pick the funniest elf. This show has been a Staircase seasonal comedy staple and is now in its 10th year. Hosted by the jolly guy himself, there will be plenty of laughs and prizes. This is not a Christmas show for children, as accidental adult content may occur. $10 info@staircase.org for reservations.

improv comedy show starts Sun-8-Jan at 8pm

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).

Musical Improv Comedy Night Sat Oct 8th One Show Only

Hamilton.

You may know it by a few different names (Steel City, The Hammer, H-Town, Toronto-light), but they all stand for one city: a city about to get it’s face melted with some seriously funny musical Improv comedy.

With a killer cast of performers made up of celebrated comedy legends and newer upstarts alike, AND with an incredible live band on hand, Musical Improv Comedy Night in Hamilton (who needs a fancy name when you… can just tell it like it is) is the biggest night of comedy to hit the Hamilton scene since the Pan Am Games stadium debacle (that was kind of comedic, right?). In other words, it’s something you won’t want to miss out on.

So if you like laughing, and if you like great live music, and if you like laughing while enjoying great live music, please grab your friends, your family (14+) and your significant others and make your way to this show on Saturday, October 8th.

You will love it.
