Brief Bios

Jacob Banigan (Edmonton) has played over 1300 improv shows in a stunning array of styles and structures. He teaches improv theory in North America and Europe, and has carried home over a dozen ridiculous first place Theatresports trophies with Rapid Fire Theatre. Banigan was Rapid Fire’s Artistic Director from 1995 to 2004.

Derek Flores (Calgary) was jumpstarted at Loose Moose Theatre, home of Theatresports, and has since been a global panic in The 3 Canadians and a metropolitan tornado on the mainstage at Second City.

Steve Sim (Winnipeg) is part of the international sensation CRUMBS, creator of IF… Improv Festival, Benevolent Emporer of The Manitoba Improv League, and two time winner of The Masters of The Obvious Theatresports Tournament.

There is over 40 years improv experience between them. These men represent the roots of Canadian Improv, and are on the leading edge of the current global improv renaissance.
