This is the Valentine's Day idea that everyone will seriously love

Jan 27 2018, 3:36 am

Valentine’s Day: It’s the most romantic time of the year and you’re going to want to do something special for your other half. Forget buying cheap chocolates and flowers (they’ll be dead within a week anyway), and treat your beloved (or your BFWB) to a night of love and laughter.

No matter what your feelings are for this hallmark-etable (get it?) holiday, Vancouver TheatreSports™ (VTSL) has a show for you. From Tuesday, February 6 to Wednesday, February 14, it’s Romance Week at The Improv Centre at VTSL.

Improv comedians will make you LOL with Love Matches (a romantic twist on classic TheatreSports™), roll your eyes with Love Unscripted – An Improvised Rom-Com (filled with all the inane clichés and funny, awkward moments, we all know and love), and be prepared to blush with Red Hot Romance (XXX-rated comedy), and to finish off the week, Cupid and Venus are hosting a special Valentine’s Day event: My Funny Valentine.

You’ll be happy to know that these are V-Day themed events that won’t burn a hole in your pocket either. Tickets for Romance Week start at just $10.75 via VTSL. If you want to do something special on the one and only Valentine’s Day, tickets for the My Funny Valentine show range from $31.00 to $32.50.

Even if you don’t have a date, this could be your chance to meet someone cute IRL. (Fun fact: VTSL has been told improv makes for great first dates and have even had patrons propose to their loved ones on stage).

  • Tuesday, February 6: Love Matches (7:30 pm)
  • Wednesday, February 7: Love Matches (7:30 pm), Red Hot Improv (9:15 pm)
