The Canadian Improv Showcase is a professional touring comedy improv troupe that specializes in short-form or game-style comedy. The show format is similar to the popular, long-running TV series "Whose Line is it Anyway?" A typical performance is sixty to ninety minutes in length and contains anywhere from twelve to twenty different scenes ranging from thirty seconds to seven or eight minutes each. The show is 100% unscripted and guided by audience suggestions and participation - so, you never see the same show twice! However, it is important to note that the Canadian Improv Showcase does not pick on their audience members at any time as they would much rather make fun of themselves.
This is the foundation of all the programmes the Canadian Improv Showcase has to offer. From here, each programme is tailored to its audience and customized according to the needs of the individual client. If you do not see a programme listed below that you feel will meet your requirements, please contact us and we will create one especially for you. As a matter of fact, some of our most popular programmes were created this way.
It is also important to note that the Canadian Improv Showcase is the only group to offer a content guarantee that states that they will keep their material appropriate for the audience at all times. This allows the group to literally perform for any audience, young and old alike. The group also offers a price-matching policy that states that they will meet or beat the competition's price for professional improvisational services. So you can rest assured that you are getting the finest and most cost effective entertainment and workshops available.
