There’s so much great stuff happening at Toronto’s Impulse Festival, which started Thursday and ends tonight at the Young Theatre in the Distillery District.

Improv troupes from as far away as Germany, Australia, France, and India have come to play and mingle with Toronto’s funniest.

If you can’t make it in person, you can still watch a livestream of the 55-hour improvised Soap-A-Thon in support of Gilda’s Club Toronto.

A core group of fearless (some would say crazy) cast members are doing the full 55 hours, including festival organizers Matt Baram and Naomi Snieckus, along with Chris Gibbs, Carmine Lucarelli, Wayne Jones, Mark Meer, Jacob Banigan, and a gaggle of others.

Each episode is an hour and forty-five minutes, and in true soap opera fashion, you don’t need to see it from the start to understand the story. We caught it around the 24-hour mark and the actors were still shockingly coherent, not to mention laugh-out-loud funny.

You can watch the live feed and donate online here. Or better yet, come on down and support our hilarious community.
