Yeah, that was a Who-ism, and why not? We’re doing a Doctor Who “Missing Episode” show, and complete with costumes, props and cheesy effects. We’re hoping to one-up our over-capacity “Game of Thrones” show from last year, and if the big blur box in the corner has anything to say about it, we’re on our way there!
Mark and Tom from The 404s are participating in an improv fundraiser for Obviously Improv, a very awesome improv team in Calgary. Our team of two “Tributes” will perform for your votes and admiration among several teams culled from the best our local improv community have to offer!
The show is on Saturday, April 4 at Festival Hall Downtown. Tix are $20 and include “sponsor” coins to support your favorite teams on the field of improv battle! Optional dress code of the “Capitol” style from the Hunger Games movies is encouraged – and there’ll be a photobooth there for additional fun times!
Here’s our poster. You can find everything you need to know at the event page HERE!
We’ve got teaser posters for two shows we’ll be doing at the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo – have a peek!
The Calgary Expo is one of our favorite nerd conventions to do, and every year we try to top ourselves with how nerdy our improv can be. Last year we abolutely packed our shows, which included Improv Against Humanity, a mullet style show (short games up front, a longer one in back – get it?), and the missing episode of “Game of Thrones”.
This year, we’re upping the stakes with a brand new edition of Improv Against Humanity, plus two fandom tributes to two of our favorite shows. Guess which ones they are!
The 404s are proud to be back at Dickens Pub for another show. This month it’ll be the infamous LAST PANTS STANDING format, where the cast will duel to be the last improviser standing – and with their pants on or off! The audience will be instrumental in judging who survives – so be there to play your part!

The Eastside 404s are holding an open workshop!
What is this?
It’s a chance to join us for a practice, do some exercises with us, and, just as a subtle hint, we DID have two members graduate last year, so we may have eyes open for people interested in auditioning.

Doors open at 2:00. The workshop itself begins at 2:15ish.

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!
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!
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!
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.
