This year marks Ganza’s super-sweet 16 birthday party and what better way to celebrate than with a team of strippers … Vancouver’s Comic Strippers to be exact! A fictitious male stripper troupe (played by a cast of some of Canada’s best improvisational comedians) perform a sexylarious improv comedy show. These guys try to be sexy…it just comes out funny. Constantly grooving and gyrating in between scenes they banter with the crowd and perform their hilarious twist on improv sketches. They sing, they “dance”. These guys are oiled up and ready to make you laugh at them.
