Oct. 24, Nov. 7, Nov. 30, Jan. 30, Mar. 12, Apr. 2 | Fred Thury Studio Theatre

The Vanier Improv Company (VIC) performs regularly throughout the year on Tuesday nights. The shows are a combination of improvisational comedy and sketch and will have you laughing out of your seats! The troupe tries not to take itself too seriously and is always looking for suggestions from the audience.

For the past 25 years, the VIC has been a special place for both students and alumni to learn and perform comedy. Over 200 students have been part of the VIC, and over half of those students spent multiple years being involved. Many have gone on to have successful careers as comedy writers and performers, while others developed lifelong friendships as a result of their time with the VIC. I think that’s an incredible testament to the community that the VIC and VCP helps build and foster.
