Reviews of the Improv Guild

" We had a blast too – the feedback on your show was all very positive, many guests commented they really enjoyed your show! "

City of Airdrie, Volunteer Appreciation Night

 "We went to our first show yesterday. After being reassured by Rick's wife that the performers did not pull people from the audience 'my' Rick and I sat in the front row on an incredible couch. I cannot tell you how much we enjoyed the show. There were several times I had to do some facial exercises as the pain in my jaw and cheeks was overwhelming as I was smiling for WAY too long. I have been to a lot of improvs over the years but have to say that I enjoyed this one more than any other. I did not stop smiling and laughing. All players were on their marks and did an incredible job. The venue was also very cool. The whole atmosphere very laid back and casual. Next time I come I will get into the groove a little and sit around the lounge and chat it up. What a hidden gem... I will definitely be telling all. Can't wait to return!"

" We hired The Improv Guild to provide post dinner entertainment at our corporate Christmas party. Rick arrived early to ask us a few questions and used the information to tailor an improv show that fit our company. Everyone enjoyed their performance. It was money well spent. "

Kirk Graham, Evoco

" Thanks again for the wonderful entertainment at last nights party for Primary Engineering. Our guests really enjoyed themselves and I made a point of telling them of your upcoming performances at Fort Calgary. We were really pleased with the way the evening went. "

Mariellen Henriksen, Primary Engineering

 "You guys were definitely a hit! My parents raved about the show and told me about Larry Shaw meeting you in the hallway... coming from Mr. Shaw, that's huge. Congratulations on the great show. Hopefully when I'm in Calgary next I can catch your Saturday night show. Thanks again for putting on such a wonderful show! "
