IMPROV GUESTS


The 404s

The 404s, the world’s finest Geek Improv Troupe has become a warm fixture in conventions across Canada asking for only the attendance and laughter of those who dare to join their audience (which, they assure us, is not to be used for some kind of ritual). Providing their infamous improvised comedy set, The 404s touch on many subjects such as Pikachu’s birth name, the philosophy of giant robots, class structure in Super Mario Bros., and many more topics you wish you could get a doctorate in. And, as always, some brave soul gets invited to the stage where they are wrapped up in a web of bizarre lies and betrayal that they label comedy.
