article imageImprov Group Pulls off Red Carpet Stunt in Toronto Special

By KJ Mullins     Sep 15, 2009 in Lifestyle
On Sept. 12, theatrical group "Improv in Toronto" closed off the city's Bloor Street and rolled out the red carpet. Fake security, press and "celebrities" were part of the stunt taking place in heart of the Toronto International Film Festival.
During the middle of the Toronto International Film Festival, a fake red carpet came out at Cumberland and Bellair Streets just for the fun of it.
Why? Because Toronto has some of the most creative people who are members of a group called Improv in Toronto .
Saturday's event was a prime example of the fun this group brings to the streets of Toronto. You never know when and where the group will "attack" next. They have run missions in the fight against breast cancer in the past.
On Saturday, the group put a red carpet down on Bloor Street near the Bay subway station. Their red carpet event featured fake press and security. But more importantly, they had the star factor.
Stars were all over in suits and prom dresses. There were some who wore less and some who were decked out to the nines. With this group you never know what to expect.
And that's the whole point. Improv in Toronto brings the fun in with wacky plots to bring smiles to the faces of those lucky enough to be in the 'attack' zone.
One of the founders Eddie Cheung took time from his studies to answer a few questions for this Digital Journalist.
KJ: What is your group's motivation?
Eddie- Our group runs on the fact that in every mission we do, we are able to make someone's day, sometimes the city is a tad gloomy, routines everywhere, we just want to put a smile on other people's face!

KJ: How much money has Improv in Toronto raised so far this year?
Eddie: Improv in Toronto doesn't deal much with money and organizations, the last event with boobalicious was one we thought had a good message, so we accepted their offer and decided to help them out. This group is purely made up of volunteers, and all of the materials is funded by individuals.
KJ: Do you guys have anything planned in the near future?
Eddie: We plan to hold many things in the future, some details we can't really release yet, but mark your calenders for October 3rd.
