The Critical Hit Show: A Live DND Improvised Epic Fantasy
7:00pm - Wednesday, Aug 30, 2023
After a brief hiatus, the live, smash hit epic comedy THE CRITICAL HIT SHOW returns to the Rio Theatre's stage on Wednesday, August 30 for more monstrous mirth, merriment, and snacks!. Prepare yourself for a night of laughter, as some of Vancouver’s best comedic performers grace the stage in a night featuring intrepid cosplayers on a gallant quest for comedy glory (and more snacks!) in a hilariously epic adventure that has been running continuously since 2012.
Spanning over 100 live performances in both Canada and the United States, two years of “at-home” streaming, and frequent festival appearances, The Critical Hit Show is one of the longest running comedy shows around. #DNDLive is an improvised adventure that takes its inspiration from tabletop role-playing games, fantasy film and TV, and (most importantly) you!
Whether you’re a longtime fan, you’ve been enjoying our live streamed shows, or you’re brand new to The Critical Hit Show - you’re going to have a great time.
