The Comic Strippers
The Humanities Theatre, University of Waterloo
No extreme nudity. Just extreme hilarity. The Comic Strippers, a fictitious male stripper troupe, played by a cast of some of Canada’s best improvisational comedians, performs a sexylarious improv comedy show. These guys try to be sexy. it just comes out funny. Come and join the explosion of ridiculousness that was the smash hit of the Adelaide Fringe in Australia and has recently been selling out theaters all over Canada and the US.
