Blind Tiger Comedy
Blind Tiger Comedy was founded by internationally-recognized improv groups The Sunday Service and Hip.Bang!, and the school’s core faculty are the six players from those two groups. They offer classes in short form and long form improvisation, sketch comedy writing, and stand up comedy.
THE SUNDAY SERVICE Since their humble beginnings in 2005, The Sunday Service has quickly become the toast of Vancouver’s alternative comedy scene with their unique blend of improvised theatre. Coming from a wide variety of backgrounds and disciplines, these four performers deliver a style rarely seen in Vancouver. They skirt the line of meta-comedy, rock opera, witty word play and slap stick shtick, combining it all for an addictive cocktail that makes habitual users out of even the most casual observer.
HIP.BANG! Hip.Bang! is an improv duo from Vancouver whose playful, absurd scenes have delighted audiences worldwide. They were just nominated for the 2013 Canadian Comedy Award for Best Improv Troupe. Pretty fancy. Tom and Devin of Hip.Bang! have been featured at comedy festivals worldwide, including the 2013 San Francisco SketchFest, NXNE, Rapid Fire Theatre’s Improvaganza, the Detroit Improv Festival, the Del Close Marathon, Out Of Bounds Comedy Festival, and more.
