The Critical Hit Improv Comedy Show at the Rio!

Featuring some of the best improv comedian's Vancouver has to offer, the critically hit show entitled "The Critical Hit Show", plays on the last Wednesday of every month at the Rio Theatre 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

The show starts at 8:00pm but doors open I believe at 7:00pm. The plan is to meet at 6:30 (a bit earlier this time) outside the Rio theater and from there to decide where to go to eat. If you're coming late we will likely be at both the Pita Pit across the street or Kyles Cafe.

 

If you can't find the group or if you arrive late then please give me a call or send me a text at 604 - 374 - 6208.

    I'm probably going to be running a bit late, I'll text you if I get there and you guys aren't around.

  • Amanda

    Might not be able to make it, hope to see you all if we do!

    Hey everybody thanks for your feedback. I've decided to change the meetup location back to the rio theater. I have however left it at 6:30, since this will give us some more time to eat and hang out before the show and hopefully to arrive at the Rio a bit earlier to get better seats. I look forward to seeing all of you there! (We will likely just go to the Pita Pita and/or to the Kyles Cafe place like last month)

      :( I feel like I should apologize :( I honestly was trying to help not hinder

      April 23, 2013

    • Marc

      You haven't done anything, Tammy, you needn't apologize. ~:0)

    Hey guys. I need to know if people are interested in going to this Chinese food place at 6:30. It has brought to my attention that some people would prefer just meeting up at the Rio and then deciding where to go from there (Pita pit, pizza or whatever). Let me know what you guys would like to do. And "some people" = Marc :P

    Still wont be well enough to attend :(

    April 22, 2013

    • Tammy S

      I hope you start feeling better soon. I know how much being sick sucks.

      April 23, 2013

  • Marc

    Best thing for everyone to do is this:
    1. [6:00-6:30] buy/pickup your ticket(s) at the Rio
    2. [6:30-7:30] eat wherever you want (or stay at the Rio)
    3. [7:30-8:00] be at the Rio before 8pm to get good seats

    This is just a suggestion based on what I've read from you.

    Everyone can do whatever they want.

    Seats get filled pretty quickly, but it's never reached full capacity when I've been there; getting in early helps secure seats together.

    • Adam

      Also judging by previous experience, the show won't start until at least 8:15. :P Though it could be hard to get seats by then.

      April 22, 2013

    • Tammy S

      I will try for six but the joys of a broken car leave me at the mercyof transit. It will probably end up being closer to 6:15 but i'll try :)

      April 22, 2013

  • Tammy S
