Benjamin Clost - BOFA commentary from a fan.

"At the beginning of high school improv wasn't something I was really interested in, I always dismissed it as one of those things I would never get in to.......until BOFA season hit me."

The Habs of High-school improv
Canterbury goes into the National Finals this weekend trying to take back the title it has won six of the past seven years
by Janice Kennedy, Published by The Ottawa Citizen, March 1996

"In less-favored NHL cities, fans have always grumbled enviously about the Montreal Canadiens, the world's greatest hockey team. By the time my childhood heros had won the Stanley Cup for a record-shattering fifth consecutive year in 1960, under the inspirational coaching of Toe Blake, the jealous muttering was dark indeed."

The Canadian Improv Games
Finding (Out) the Vision
Published in The Canadan Theatre Review
Winter 1993

"Ottawa 1974: Two high school students crash an Improvistion workshop wearing loincloths and wielding cardboard spears.

Ottawa March 1993: the Theatre of the National Arts Centre was filled to its nine-hundred-seat capacity with avid fans, alumni, and the merely curious to witness the finals of the Canadian Improv Games. The event was given national coverage via YTV."
