4. Oh, Canada – The True North Strong and Funny

Oh, Canada – The True North Strong and Funny.

VTSL improvisers take a loving and comedic look at what makes us uniquely Canadian—poking fun at the stereotypes of Canada and Canadians. Based on audience suggestions, the cast lampoon such Canadian ‘institutions’ as Heritage Minutes, the Mounties, winter, our hunky Prime Minister, hockey, lumberjacks or Timmy’s coffee to name only a few of the endless possibilities. As this is improv and the show is made up on the spot, no two shows are ever the same. Celebrate Canada 150, by joining VTSL for some distinctively Canadian laughs. You’ll be nicer for it eh.
