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.

Takahata101

Curtis "Takahata" Arnott

Guess who’s back? Back again? Curtis is back, tell your friends!

For Saturday ONLY , we have a limited engagement with Tsukino-Con regular Takahata101 (Curtis). He is with us for at least one day this year, so make sure you come to join him for his panels or just see him walking around hi-fiving people.

Curtis Arnott, more commonly known as Takahata101 is a voice actor, editor and writer for TeamFourStar. He is one of the co-founders of TeamFourStar, along with one of the most well-known abridgers online.

Takahata has become a popular figure in the Abridging community as the most popular Dragon Ball Z Abridged Character Nappa, making a character most popular for saying “What does the scouter say about his power level?” into a lovable, hysterical character in his own right in TeamFourStar’s Dragon Ball Z abridged. Takahata101 with the help of the team created a parody of the song “Ghostbusters” by Ray Parker JR into the cult classic “Ghost Nappa” after the death of Nappa in episode 9-10.

During the Christmas season of 2009, the song “Killing in the Name Of” was added in the song collection as a joke. The next year, KaiserNeko, the series editor, collaborated with Takahata101 as he mentioned fans were not too happy with that song not being downloaded and featured the full version of the song with a downloadable feature like they did for Ghost Nappa.

Takahata101 is a skilled non profit voice actor in the abridging community. Takahata101 has been in a multitude of fandubs and is part of multiple fandubbing groups. Takahata101 has many projects to date as a popular Canadian voice actor.
In an April Fools video on LittleKuriboh’s channel CardGamesFTW, Takahata101 is referred to as a “voice whore”, although he has been referred to as that long before Kuriboh’s video.
