Gallery 7 Theatre presents the comedy improv group Panic Squad on Friday, Sept. 25.

The event begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Abbotsford Arts Centre.

Gallery 7 artistic/executive director Ken Hildebrandt said Panic Squad’s super-clean comedy improvisation is suitable for the whole family.

“All I can say is be ready to laugh – a lot,” he said.

Panic Squad, who perform across North America, usually feature three improvisers, but the show in Abbotsford includes a few more top-notch performers from throughout the Lower Mainland and Pacific Northwest.

At the helm of the team is Andrew Bright, based in Bellingham, Wash. One of the founding members of the Panic Squad, Bright is Mr. Physical Comedy and loves to bend his face and body into anything the scene calls for.

He discovered his love for improv at Trinity Western University, where he became part of the university’s comedy improv league, 11:07.

Bright started the Panic Squad in 1996, and it became a full-time venture in 2001.

Tickets for the show are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors/students, and $15 for children ages 12 and under.

They can be purchased at House of James (2743 Emerson St.), online at gallery7theatre.com, or by calling 604-852-3701 or 1-800-665-8828.
