A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… there’s still no affordable housing in Lotus Land of the West, tourists continue to flock to the small island in False Creek, the Evil Emperor plots his return and the improvisers strike back. Episode X.
Vancouver TheatreSports League’s (VTSL) improvisers are Hosts to a new, imaginative show at The Improv Centre on Granville Island. Inspired by the HBO series Westworld, this parody relies on audience suggestions to set the scenes and drive the action every Thursday through Saturday evening.
I grew up watching things like Whose Line Is It Anyway so I’ve always loved some good improv, and Vancouver TheatreSports League’s new show #NoFilter doesn’t disappoint.
Since March 2, late Thursday nights at The Improv Centre on Granville Island are ‘so lit.’ #NoFilter, Vancouver TheatreSports’ newest show, uses the spontaneity of improv comedy to delve into our fleeting, over-shared digital world. From Snapchat to Instagram, Weibo to Facebook and everything in between, #NoFilter finds the fun and funny in how much we share about ourselves with nearly total strangers.
This is often the time of year when the winter blues set in – the holidays are over, the weather is blech, and you’ve received your credit card bill from December. The best antidote? A good dose of laughter.
February 1 through 14, Vancouver TheatreSports™ League (VTSL) rocks the laughs with its annual festival, Throwdown International TheatreSports Festival (formerly called The Massacre), welcoming TheatreSports™ teams from around the world who bring their A-Game to head-to head matches with each other and local teams comprised of some of VTSL’s top improvisers.

The lead-up to the US election, Kate and Will’s visit, climate change, the demise of Brangelina and the construction of more bike lanes are just a few of the stories that grabbed the headlines in 2016. These stories and more will provide fodder for Vancouver TheatreSports’™ (VTSL) quick-witted improvisers as they journey back through the headlines this past year with Year in Review.
