“Funny, fast-paced, character-driven improv” – The Comedy Killers review Show Us Your Wits: Funny, Sexy Cool!

The Comedy Killers – Vancouver’s own comedy review crew – came out to Show Us Your Wits: Funny, Sexy Cool on February 28th and they liked what they saw! Check out their capsule review of the show:

“Funny, fast-paced, character-driven improv in a very comedy-friendly room (Cafe Deux Soleils). Sudden Death Improv mastermind Graham Myers was the comedy guest this time ’round. He had great chemistry with the Fictionals cast, and he was hilarious, too. Oh, and there were half-naked (burlesque dancers). Worth checking out. (Next show is March 27th.)”
