24 Hours of Improv

24 HOURS OF IMPROV

Welcome to the ultimate improv battle royale. For a cause.

From 7pm on Friday, March 10 to 7pm on Saturday, March 11 Bad Dog players will improvise for 24 straight hours. This battle royale will be raising funds for Bad Dog's Diversity & Inclusion Program. Bad Dog is raising funds for year two of Our Cities on Our Stages, a two-day symposium with a focus on how to better reflect Toronto’s diverse voices on our unscripted comedy stages and exploring diversity/inclusion within improvisation as it pertains to performers, audiences and organizations. Set to take place on May 20 & 21 of this year. Participants will include artistic and administrative leaders in North America's improv comedy scene, thought-leaders from the Toronto Arts & Culture sector, and community participants.

 

SPONSOR A PLAYER

For just $15 you can sponsor a player for one hour of the improv-a-thon

But... what happens if they don't make their goal? 
It's up to them! 24 hour players must perform the opening and closing shows, and are committed to the total number of hours they raise funds for, but otherwise... they can come and go (and sleep) as they please.

What's in it for me?
A sweet, sweet tax receipt for donations over $15
and the knowledge that you control these people's lives, if only for a day.
