Improv Comedy Night - with Crush Improv

Please note:  The Crush Improv show in January will take place at Cafe Dekcuf. The show won't be held at the Elmdale Tavern due to renovations.




Come on out for a night of hilarious improvisational comedy!

Pay-what-you-can admission: $5 suggested donation.

The show starts at 8 pm. However, it's a popular monthly show with the general public, so please arrive for 7:00-7:15 pm, if you can, in order to get good seats.



It’s ‘Bout Time!


Crush’s ‘Bout Time! has become the signature show of the gang. Created in late 2010 and officially premiered January 3rd, 2011, the show is a 3 on 3 competitive format where the audience determines the winner by secret ballot.

The show has the following structure:

First Half

(a short challenge between both teams – winner gets pick of games)

Loser plays Game A, Winner plays Game B
Audience then, by applause votes for their favourite &
host assigns points out of 5 accordingly

Game C / Game D

Game E / Game F

Points are tallied and scores announced. Every point earned equals one minute for that team in the second half


Second Half

Each team can use their earned minutes in any way they choose. The team with the most minutes goes first followed by the team with the least minutes.

The audience then casts their ballot for the team they enjoyed the most overall.  While the ballots are tabulated, both teams play a cooperative game.

Winner is announced and invited to return next month.

    Only issue with Dekcuf - it was really cold except in bathrooms. Fantastic night. Can't wait to attend again!

    Your host, me, is a tall man, beard, glasses, and I will be wearing a denim shirt. I will be sitting as close to the stage as I can and I will try to save as many seats as I can. I will be there about 7:00 PM. See you all tomorrow. :-)

    I'd *love* to come but have just signed up for a class that ends at 7:30...wondering if any of you who don't know me would save me a seat??

      The show begins at 8:00 PM and I will save as many seats as I can. But I have not been to this venue before so I'm not sure how fast it will fill up.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
