Who is AATH? We are an inclusive community of humor professionals and enthusiasts with a shared mission to elevate and nourish the human spirit through the intentional use of humor and laughter. One way we do that is by offering professional development and continuing education at our annual humor conference.

AATH welcomes anyone interested in learning more about the application and benefits of therapeutic humor. Attendees include scholars, psychologists, counselors, allied healthcare practitioners, nurses, social workers, physicians, cancer survivors, funeral directors, business executives, human resource managers, educators, clergy, hospital clowns, speakers, trainers, and so many others who incorporate humor in their life and work.

Join us and connect with scholars and practitioners who appreciate the value of using humor as a catalyst for change. Network with supportive, approachable, and oftentimes funny colleagues from around the world and learn the science and art of strategically using humor to elicit positive results.

Save the date and join us at the 2024 AATH Conference & Humor Academy April 4-7, 2024 in Denver, Colorado!

Since 1994 Instant Theatre has produced improvisational theatre performances and trained generations of improvisors through the education programs it has offered or sponsored in the community. Its legacy has long been established through the exceptional shows, festivals, and improvisors it has produced in that time, which have become part of the fabric of the Vancouver improv community. After a pandemic hiatus Instant Theatre is returning to the stages and studios of the city to continue that legacy, with a new look and new team behind it.

Our team is made up of passionate improvisors who were introduced to improvisation through Instant’s programs and had formative development experiences with the company. We’re excited to bring Instant Theatre back to the community, and to offer that same kind of experience to the next generation of improvisors in Vancouver.

Instant Theatre is building an improvisational theatre community of practice that is inclusive and accessible. We strive to innovate and advance improvisational theatre through curated experiences for artists and audiences, and services for our clients.
