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 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 show starts at 8:00pm but doors open I believe at 7:00pm. The plan is to meet at 6:30 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 (,+BC&ll=49.262134,-123.069513&spn=0.005867,0.009645&hnear=1661+E+Broadway,+Vancouver,+British+Columbia+V5N+1V9&t=m&z=17) across the street or Kyles Cafe (,Vancouver,+BC,+Canada&cid=0,0,4584355651471122146&t=h&z=16&iwloc=A). We get a 10% discount at the Pita Pit, so that's where we usually eat (and it's across the street from the Rio)!!

If Ian ( isn't picking up because he can't hear his phone (or he mistakes you for the paparazzi who's constantly hounding him for photos and autographs and, oddly enough, free copies of his best-selling 'secret' memoirs titled; A Glimpse Into the Life of Ian, with Free(!) 200-Page Pull-Out Instructions On How To Give Sensual Massages While Singing Opera Klingon), aaaannd if you don't mind receiving text replies from Marc ( asking you;
what the colour of your eyes is,
and how your day's been,
and what your favourite colour is,
and which 'Shy group' event you prefer,
and if you'll play Werewolf with the group at the weekly Board Game event,
and if you prefer pasta to rice,
and who's your favourite character on the 'Big Bang Theory',
and if you like Gelato,
and which is your favourite animal,
and if you answered that you prefer rice, did you know that brown rice is better for you,
..and a whole lot more very annoying chatter, send..
