The Critically Hit Improv Comedy Show at the Rio (Dungeons and Dragons)

Featuring some of the best improv comedian's Vancouver has to offer, the critically hit show entitled "The Critically Hit Show", plays on the last Wednesday of every month at the Rio Theater in Vancouver, conveniently located right beside commercial skytrain station. Keep in mind you don't need to be a dungeons and dragons fan to enjoy this. The first time I went, I knew practically nothing about dungeons and dragons but still had a great time.

More information from their website:

"THE CRITICAL HIT SHOW: A Live Dungeons & Dragons Comedy Experience! Join Vancouver's best comedic performers at The Rio Theatre on the last Wednesday of every month as they quest for glory and snacks in this live, improvised spectacular! THE ADVENTURERS: Eric Fell as The Dungeon Master. Ian Boothby as Benoit the Anointed, the Half-Elf Cleric. Joanna Gaskell as Edda, the Elf Barbarian. Lauren McGibbon as Grima Windwords, the Human Thief. Allen Morrison as Spitz Luben, the Human Wizard. Shaun Stewart as Brask Hellbeard, the Dwarf Fighter. More monsters! More Magic! More Mayhem! More Off-Brand soda! This show is a licensed event, so it's 19+ No minors."

Tickets can be bought either online for only $6, or at the door for $9. Buy them online here:

The show starts at 8:00 but doors open I believe at 7:00. We will meet at 7:00 outside the Rio theater to grab some food before the show.

If you have trouble finding the group or if you arrive late then please give me a call or send me a text at[masked] 6208.

      I wonder how many gigabytes of photos the group is allows to have...

      There doesn't seem to be a limit.
      I guess all the fees pay to purchase and maintain hard-drives (or pay for extra storage if they contract out for their web servers).
      Though I think they contract out to DynECT(.net).

    For all of you who went to karaoke after the show (and for all of you who weren't able to):
    Ed's rendition of 'C Is For Cookie' was.. flawless!!!
    Unfortunately.. as a result, I've had that song in my head ever since! >.<
    C is for cookie, that's good enough for me
    C is for cookie, that's good enough for me
    C is for cookie, that's good enough for me
    Oh, cookie, cookie, cookie starts with C
    ... and on and on and on (and on!)

      It's always the last Wednesday of every month.

    The last show was almost sold out and I wouldn't be surprised if this one does sell out. That being said we'll be getting there pretty early so you should be able to buy a ticket at the venue. But just to be safe, buying online is probably a good idea if you know for sure that you'll be going
