Double Trouble, Two’s Company and other cliches don’t really describe the joy this week brings. First up – the regular random chaotic genius that is Gorilla Burger, followed on Saturday by the fractionally more refined and theatrical Consenting Partners. Both are awesome, which one will win? There’s only one way to find out…

Gorilla Burger: Show Off or Watch the Show

Get up on stage, get matched with a selection of other performers and get it on (theatrically! Honestly, it’s not really that kind of show). This is improvised comedy theatre and together we’ll be brilliant.

All you have to do is stick your name in the hat – the receptacle of randomness – and you’ll be drawn, partnered and slung on stage. Your choice of game or scene will guide you in an episode of spontaneous theatre.

Of course, you don’t have to give us your name. You can remain happily anonymous in the audience, settle back with a pint and enjoy the show.

It’s probably the best mash up of cleverness, silliness, drinking and theatre you’ll find.

*Don’t forget that this month we’re in the salubrious surroundings supplied by the Ned Ludd’s upstairs space.
