We welcomed amazing guestsfrom Chicago, Orlando, Melbourne, Vancouver, Winnipeg & Toronto and each and every one left an indelible mark upon Calgary's improv scene.A huge thank-you to all the artists, support staff, volunteers, sponsors and most of all to the warm and enthusiastic Calgarians who came by to laugh at us! We love you all.
