The Great Möbius

On March 21st, at 2PM, Edmonton Improv severed the fabric of time creating a loop. Our undercover agents meticulously repeated a five minute cycle over the course of forty five minutes.

"A twist in the fabric of space where time becomes a loop, from which there is no escape. When we reach that point, whatever happened will happen again."

Saturday, February 20, 2010's Melissa Bowen Jensen!

On February 20th, Edmonton Improv agents arrived at Hawrelak Park, armed with posters and cameras, to take in the Silver Skate Festival and await the arrival of a very special celebrity; Melissa Bowen Jensen!

Melissa, known by some (mostly Edmonton Improv agents) as the latest thing, arrived around 2:40pm to take in the festival. Escorted by bodyguards, Melissa was met with eager anticipation.

"She's so human!" One onlooker shouted as Melissa took in the sights. It wasn't long until regular festival goers took notice and circled the star. As some ventured near to chat, take pictures, and ask for autographs, other, slightly shyer fans took photos of and filmed the star from afar.

A Scene But Not Obscene: Support the Annual "No Pants Subway Ride".

On January 10, 2010 thousands of people from around the world united with a common dream; a dream of riding their local subway... pant-less. Yes, that's right. Originally the concept of New York based Improv Everywhere, the international "no-pants subway ride" event has grown over the past 9 years to include over 40 host cities from around the world.

Though pant-less, the intentions behind the event have far less to do with "exhibitionism" and "shock-value" than with doing something out of the ordinary, creating smiles, and living in a world where anything can happen.

Show your support for the "no-pants" event, Edmonton Improv, and other improv groups but going to the Edmonton Sun's website and voting in their online poll (half-way down on the right-hand side).
