Praise for Improv Against Humanity:


“This high jinks-filled interactive improv series put on by The Fictionals troupe is guaranteed to tickle your funny bone… You can’t have more politically incorrect fun.” – Georgia Straight’s Best of Vancouver 2013

“(Improv Against Humanity) guarantees some great vetted fodder for laughs of the truly horrible kind… It’s great water cooler talk: go with friends and you’ll be debating over the best and worst skit, and your favourite comic of the motley crew. Every so often, a really great concept comes together and makes you seriously laugh out loud.” – Vancity Buzz

“@TheFictionals put on one of the greatest improv shows I’ve ever seen tonight! #IAHatRIO ****in’ rocked! Can’t wait for more.” – @brianrussell50 via Twitter Wall of Doom
