In the lead-up to Valentine’s Day, Vancouver TheatreSports (VTS) is celebrating the way the way it does all things, with laughter.
During Romance Week, until February 15th, VTS is squeezing out every drop of fun, comedy and spontaneity they can find in love and romance.
Laugh it up with your loved one or grab a gaggle of your single friends and make a night of laughing at love. Tickets for individual shows start at just $10.75 (VTS offers discounts for groups of 10 or more), and are available online or at the Improv Centre Box Office, on Granville Island.
Romance Week performances include:
The Love of Your Life – An Improvised True Romance | February 12-13, & 15 at 7:30pm

OK Tinder – Swipe Right Comedy | February 13 at 9:15pm
Looking for love on the internet? Jump into 60 minutes of fast-paced, no-holds-barred comedy looking at the good, bad, and laughably ludicrous of Vancouver’s notorious dating scene.
Love Matches – A Valentine’s Day All-Out Love Battle | February 14 at 7:30pm and 9:30pm
Hosted by Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, and a very dapper GQpid, Love Matches (based on the classic TheatreSports format) features an all-out love battle of epic proportions as ‘improv couples’ duke it out in an audience-inspired competition to prove that love conquers all. The evening also includes various special characters such as a Love Astrologer who will check your Heart Chart (are your sun signs compatible?) and personalized improvised love sonnets you can take with you, as well as specials at the bar.
Frisky Friday | February 14 at 11:15pm
Bring the sizzle to your Friday nights as an all-star cast of VTS ensemble members explores the funny side of naughty. From fetishes to threesomes, no subject will be deemed too scandalous to spoof. Based on audience suggestions, this is a show for mature adults who want to get their laugh on.
The Late Show – Adult Only Comedy | February 15 at 11:15pm

You never know how far this show will go with the audience as willing accomplices.
