Starting with their first disastrous show, LaughterBus follows the trials of the eponymous improv troupe LaughterBus. Composed of textbook actor Shannon, improv student Anesti, and former business mogul Cliff, the troupe struggles to make a name for themselves in the Toronto comedy community, despite their lack of experience or ability.

The show follows the troupe as they find new places to perform and new ways to hone their craft. As well, dark secrets about the members' former lives are revealed, leading to brushes with violence, encounters with dangerous people, and generally panicked expressions.

Join Laughterbus as they battle tough audiences and tougher hitmen. Beep beep!
