True Story! An Improv Show

Storytelling on the fly and a few laughs are yours at this student-driven evening of improvised comedy.
True Story! An Improv Show is a simple set of improv games threaded together with real life improvised storytelling. The Vikes Improv group play off each other’s strengths and weaknesses, tagging in and out and supporting one another.
True Story! features a rotating cast of storytellers, providing this show with a unique edge that transcends traditional improv games. Each evening will be different, which adds a reason to see it more than once.
Special guest star and local patron saint of improv Dave Morris also offers his humour and services to bolster this performance.
True Story! is best enjoyed by fans of improv and comedy. The through line of the storyteller provides a humorous narrative while totally lacking anything resembling a plot, but that’s improv for you.
The Bottom Line
It’s not going to be the most Earth-shattering show at the Victoria Fringe, but True Story! An Improv Show is great way to spend an evening if you’re looking for a good yuk yuks and some offbeat stories.
