Vikes Improv

Vikes Improv is an improvisational comedy performance group based out of the University of Victoria. Vikes consists of students from all departments and all years, including graduate students! There are currently 3 performance teams, 2 of which are coached, and one self-directed team.

Not Rocket Science: NRS is Vikes self-directed team. They’ve been together as an official team since September but have been improvising together for a couple years in some way or another. They enjoy playing grounded characters with a flare for the dramatic.

Competitive Christmas Lights: Competitive Christmas Lights is a brand new improv comedy troupe performing together since September 2016. They are comprised of six students all in different departments: writing, computer science, geography, theatre, anthropology, and English . This eclectic mix of background makes their improv fun and diverse, a true reflection of the UVic spirit.

The Pendleton Collective: If you know a congregation who only speak in emojis and measured love in laughs, you know the Pendleton Collective. Established in 2016 this fresh Vikes Improv team made strides in the art, from short form games to long form scenes. The Pendletons' are a dynamic combination of veteran and new improvisers alike.
