Have you heard??!




In front of a capacity 850 seat theatre in the ritzy side of west Berlin, two juggernauts of the impro world came together in a clash similar to that of titans. With the pressure of a live, nationwide televised broadcast and with the fate of the whole world resting upon their very malformed shoulders, Belgium and Canada dug deep into their respective comedy bag o'tricks, spat in the bucket, and came out fighting.

Canada lost one point to the very stringent German rule of 'No Mistakes', and got a little distracted by the very sexy crowd.
By the end of the first half Belgium pulled away slightly leading by two points, but with the spirit of a thousand pine trees and the raging power of the mighty North Saskatchewan River, Team Canada wowed, stunned, caused much mouth gaping and was able to pull level by the end of regulation time.
It was then that nail biting became the order on the menu of tension.

After three(!) tie breaker attempts and the threat of penalty kicks it was decided that there could only be one winner. That winner was: IMPRO! And so for 2006 there would be two World Champions!!! Huzzah Belgium!! Huzzah Canada!!

The world is now a safer place.
end transmission.
