This summer, Bad Dog Theatre presents Fever Pitch, a 15-week competition pitting 13 longform improv teams against one another.
how it works
Each team will perform three times over the course of the summer. Each show features three longform improv teams squaring off, with the audience choosing their favorites. At the end of the night, after the votes are counted, the top team earns 3 points, the second place team earns 2 points and third place earns 1 point.
At the end of the summer, the teams with the most points will square off as until there’s only one top dog left.
Each show takes place Tuesdays at 9:30 PM at Bad Dog Theatre. Ticket prices are Pay-What-You-Can - no one will be turned away due to lack of funds!

SHOW & ACCESSIBILITY INFORMATION
Tickets for the show are Pay-What-You-Can, which means you decide how many to pay. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. The suggested price for the show is $5 but you can pay whatever you like.
Bad Dog is located on the second floor of a building, accessible via a 20-step stairwell with a handrail on the right. The washrooms are not wheelchair accessible. The closest subway station is Ossington, which has elevator access. Most seating is elevated, requiring at least one step up, although limited accessible seating is available on the floor.
threepio at montreal improv
Fever Pitch is heavily inspired by Montreal Improv's Threepio competition, created by Marc Rowland, and intentional similarities between the two shows (of which there are many) were implemented with permission.
