Illustrated Men have been playing clubs, theatres, festivals and corporate functions around the world for an extraordinary number of years now. Formed in 1987, the company has developed its own unique brand of improvised comedy that is unequalled in Canada. Combining lightning-fast improvisation and music, the Men bring first-rate satire to the comedy landscape. Operating from premises and situations dictated by audience suggestion, The Men fly in the face of danger with shows comprised of both improvised and written material. Professional actors and writers, together they have created, written, filmed and produced live productions for audiences across the country, often mixing in political and socially conscious themes.
