Hey Improv & Spoken Word fans! The Fictionals are making a special appearance at Vancouver Poetry Slam on Monday, June 10 at Cafe Deux Soleils for a Little Death Match! Comedy inspired by 5/7/5 (17 syllable) poems!
Our improvisers will be throwing down with some of Vancouver’s finest poets in mini poetry battles, then using those poems to inspire a comedy jam session full of scenes made up on the spot! The show will also feature an open mic to kick things off, then a full Haiku Death Match showdown in the second half of the show!
We are honoured to be guesting with Van Slam, and invite everyone to join the fun! Doors are at 8 pm, and show is at 9 pm. Tickets are Pay-What-You-Can, with a suggested cover of $6-$10!
