These teams are set to compete against each other from January 2 to 13, to determine just who the BEST improviser in Vancouver really is.

The grapple for giggles continues from January 16 to 21 with the top improvisers from the United States, featuring; Curious Comedy from Portland, Improv Boston from Cambridge, Massachusetts, The Future from Philadelphia, Upfront Theatre from Bellingham, and the returning champions, Sak Comedy Club from Orlando.

Whose wits will win the ultimate bragging rights? You’ll have to find out in the final battle on January 21 when the local teams take on the international teams in a winner-takes-all laugh fest.
