The best improvisors in the world live right here in Edmonton. Rapid Fire Theatre hosts the other top-ranked improv teams from across the globe at Improvaganza, a 10-day celebration of improv, comedy, music and more. Edmonton's funniest festival!
Meet Nikki Hulowski, January’s Player of the Month!
WHAT ARE SOME TIPS YOU CAN OFFER AUDIENCE MEMBERS ABOUT GIVING SUGGESTIONS TO IMPROVISERS?
Whatever honestly inspires you will inspire us. If “Dildo” is what inspires you, then you might have issues that we need to talk about— but in all honesty, give us suggestions for what YOU want to see, NOT what you think will be funny. Let us make the jokes about something that you suggest, rather than suggesting the joke itself; the joke can be created naturally and lets us all be surprised and eventually satisfied together! (That’s what she said.)

Missing the Red Shirt Diaries this Saturday would be highly illogical — especially if you're a fan of the Mass Effect video game trilogy. Join Mark Meer (Commander Shepard) on the bridge of the USS IMPROVISE as we boldy improvise a Star Trek episode that will never be seen again! Get your tickets today! https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/red-shirt-diaries-tickets-36898908629

Back by popular demand! TEDxRFT is an improvised TED Talk. Using slides they haven’t seen and speaking on a topic they get from the audience, Kory Mathewson and Julian Faid present totally improvised powerpoint presentations right before your eyes. It is the academic equivalent of sword fighting blindfolded. You’d have to be a fool to try it.
Also performing at CHiMPROV this week:
PRESIDENT’S CHOICE (Quinn Contini, Sarah Mattiello, Gordie Lucius, Chris Borger)
POWER COUPLE (Joey Lucius & Danielle Browne)
