Laugh in the Face of Fear - 2018

  • Social Capital Theatre 154 Danforth Avenue, 2nd Floor Toronto, ON, M4K 1N1 Canada (map)

If you're scared of improv, this is the show for you!

Every 3rd Tuesday of the month, we'll do a show based on improv and anxiety. 

PLAYSHOP: Come at 7 and try out some improv exercises designed to help with anxiety. You'll be with a group of fun, nervous who also kinda don't wanna be there, but kinda do. You’ll laugh and play together. It’ll be fun. Surprisingly fun, considering how scary improv sounds. 

SHOW: Then at 8, watch a hilarious improv show! 

First up, some fun scenes with a mix of improv veterans, and newbies testing the stage for the first time.  

Then, an amazing improv team will make up stories and make you laugh on the spot. 

Then, each month we have a special guest speaker to tell tales of anxiety, and an all-star cast of improvisers turn those stories into hilarious comedy. 

It’s a pay what you can show (workshop is free!) and all after-cost proceeds go to charity. Each month supports a new mental health charity. 

It’s an anxiety-based show, so you won’t be singled out or asked to perform. Just sit back (in the back if you want) and enjoy the show.
