One could be forgiven in thinking that the holiday season has fewer entertainment choices, but in reality nothing could be further from the truth. Here are the events we’re most looking forward to this week.
The Vancouver TheatreSports League presents its annual Year in Review. From the Royal baby to Rob Ford to twerking, VTSL’s improvisers will lampoon pop-culture phenomena from the year that was. The 90-minute show features a team of four improvisers, along with a host who will call on the audience for suggestions to fuel each scene. As always, VTSL’s quick-on-their-feet performers will then create comedy magic centered on these suggestions.

If you’re not off to the Polar Bear Swim at English Bay on New Year’s Day, you might want to join the Bent Car guys for their 4th Annual Gay Guy Car Gathering at Spanish Banks from Noon to 3pm. Bring your car (modern or vintage, they’re not fussy) plus some snacks, your favourite car related stuff, chairs, blankets, dogs, sunglasses! And oh yeah, car pooling is allowed!
It’s a Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious time in Vancouver as Mary Poppins literally flies in for a visit with the Banks’ family in this fun-for-all ages musical comedy. With only a couple more chances to see this “jolly holiday treat” at the Arts Club Stanley Theatre, you’ll want to get your tickets now.
On Sunday, head over to East Vancouver for some laughs as the Instant Theatre Company presents an evening of stand-up and improv at the Havana.
