A new monthly show in Calgary – Improv Against Humanity!

It’s true! We’re taking over the Dickens Pub stage on Tuesday, November 18 with a full-on performance of “Improv Against Humanity”, true to our reputation as the genre nerds of improv comedy!

Dickens-2014-11

Using the infamous “Party Game for Horrible People”, The 404s will use topics from Cards Against Humanity plus audience answers as the basis for totally unscripted comedy madness. And as always, your participation will power the show!

Showtime: 8pm
Tickets: $10 at the Door

The 404s have packed full rooms for years at genre events such as theCalgary Comic and Entertainment Expo, and will be starting their monthly show with a brand-new performance of the same show. See you there!

Romeo VS Juliet – An Improv Fundraiser Showdown of Wits, Skits, and Idiots!

Romeo vs Juliet

Romeo vs Juliet

Let it be told that The 404s hast declar’d a duel against We Happy Few. Henceforth, on Saturday, November 15th at 8:00 pm, at The SoCap Theatre, thither shall be a duel. An improv duel. F’r the favour of all the ladies and gentleman of the audience.

These two casts will hurlyburly in a series of scenes to determine who will reign with improv supremacy.

It will make Titus Andronicus look like a papercut.

Proceeds from this show go to Shakespeare-In-Hospitals Program, providing culture and entertainment to those in need.

Testimonials

“Thanks so much for performing at our party...You were extremely funny, you did your research, and very flexible on the format. We would recommend you all to anyone that asked.”

- Terri Walsh, National Sales Operations Specialist at SAP

“ The 404s are one of Toronto’s best-kept comedy secrets, bringing improvisational comedy with a geeky bent to conventions, conferences and clubs all over North America.”

- Mike Anderson, Reviewer at MooneyOnTheatre.com

“ The first time I saw The 404s was a decade ago at Animethon 10 in Edmonton, entertaining rooms packed to the rafters. It’s been my pleasure to know and work with them through all these years and to see that they are still going strong, bringing much-needed laughter to fandom events all across Canada and North America. Looking forward to another ten great years.”

- Vlad G. Pohnert, Vice-President/AMV Director at Animethon

“ The 404s provided an unexpected but fun adventure for our City Council and volunteers. You never knew what was going to happen next and there were a lot of laughs along the way! They were a big hit!”

- Joey Leslie, City of Airdrie

"Thanks in part to your presence, Con-G 2011 was a resounding success. We had 705 people in attendance, a 35% growth from last year... It was a pleasure to have you back!"

- Con-G Staff (anime convention in Guelph, Ontario)

"The 404s offer a refreshing experience. Since there is no script their show is always tailored to the audience. Anything and everything can happen! Be warned though. Your sides will ache from all the laughing!"

- Heather Bendera, Coordinator at Ponoka Gymnastics Club

“They were all a pleasure to work with, fast on their feet and funny as Hell. They were just as much fun to perform with as they are to watch.”

- Doug Walker, a.k.a. “The Nostalgia Critic” (www.thatguywiththeglasses.com)

“The rooms were filled to capacity, and on their Saturday late-nite performance, we took down the wall between two panel rooms to accommodate the crowd that wanted to check out the show! I HIGHLY recommend them for absolutely ANY event if you want to liven things up and thoroughly entertain your crowd!”

- Jeremy Androsoff, Director of Programming at Anime Revolution
