In 2013, four young-blooded improvisers set out to create a space for comedians in Regina, Saskatchewan. Above a shoe store in The Creative City Centre, founders Andrew Parry, Cameron Chomyn, Danny Murphy and Samantha Gross ran shows involving local Regina improvisers and guests from other cities. At the end of a series of sold out shows, they opened their doors further and grew to become Hitchhikers Improv Company.
Now with a brilliant team of hardworking and dedicated staff, Hitchhikers Improv Company is focused on the training and direction of improvisers with the mandate of fostering an improv community in our beautiful (and hilarious) city. We currently have over forty talented members more than five teams. We produce close to 40 shows a year—from improv to sketch and stand-up—and have performed in festivals from Winnipeg to Vancouver.
