Best of Fest : VIIF 2015!

Monday, November 16, 2015

It was a magical week of VIIF 2015 and we couldn’t be happier to showcase our BEST OF THE FEST! You all voted on your favourite performers/groups and the results are in!

Festival Favourite Group : TEDxRFT 


With their utterly hilarious and mostly ridiculous presentation slides (which they have made for each other and haven’t seen until the moment that they’re on stage), TEDxRFT stole the show with great justifications and lightning fast reactions to each crazy slide. You can catch this amazing duo at RapidFire Theatre in Edmonton, Alberta.

Favourite Local Ensemble Performer: Travis Bernhardt


What can we say other than Travis Bernhardt is a delight to watch on stage, from his excellent and hilarious mime and physicality, to his fantastic sense of humour and even greater storytelling ability. You can catch Travis around town performing with Instant Theatre, occasionally The Fictionals, and more!

Favorite International Ensemble Performer: Alastair Forbesalistair forbes

As an alumni of the Second City mainstage in Toronto, this improv powerhouse brought his A-game and then some to the VIIF ensemble stage. With lightning fast reactions and a wonderful sense of play, Alistair’s delightful style of improv won audience and improviser hearts alike. You can catch him with his improv troupe Bonspiel in the lovely city of Toronto.


Join us again for VIIF 2016 and another week full of amazing improv talent!
