Back to All Auditions
  • Start Date Flexible

The Second City’s Family Friendly “Improv Showdown” is back for 2019 and looking for talented improvisers to join our ensemble!

The show will have matinee performances on Family day weekend, Easter Weekend, March Break, and throughout the summer. This is a non-union contracted position.

Show Description:
Get ready Toronto, The Second City is taking family entertainment to a mind-blowing new level! Two hilarious teams of top-notch improvisers will face off in a winner takes all comedy showdown – and they’re going to need your help! Fuelled by weird suggestions and energized by audience volunteers, our teams will work hard to earn your votes in a desperate attempt to become the heavyweight comedy champions of the world! At least until the next show… Specially designed for kids (and the old people in charge of them), this show has it all. High-energy characters? Check! All the Fortnite dances you can handle? Check! A scene with a puppy, an alien and a thousand pound watermelon? Who knows! It’s an Improv Showdown – anything can happen (and probably will)!
