About the 404s

The 404s – Improv ComedyThe 404s, the world’s finest Geek Improv Troupe has become a warm fixture in conventions across Canada, asking for only the attendance and laughter of those who dare to join their audience (which, they assure us, is not to be used for some kind of ritual).

Providing their infamous improvised comedy set, The 404s touch on many subjects such as Pikachu’s birth name, the philosophy of giant robots, class structure in Super Mario Bros., and many more topics you wish you could get a doctorate in. And, as always, some brave souls get invited to the stage where they are wrapped up in a web of bizarre lies and betrayal that they label comedy.

To that end, all are invited to behold this unyielding juggernaut of funny people with odd habits as you watch the conception of a thousand new internet memes, each too beautiful for this world!
