This week’s drop-in: Santa Grants Your Christmas Wishes! 

Brought to you by Minder.

We’re kicking off the first Jam in December with a Christmas Extravaganza! This is your chance to ask Santa for an improv present!

How does it work? Send Santa (Minder) an email to ImprovWish @ with something you’d like to do/see at this week’s drop-in and it might just happen.

Want to play a specific game that you love? A scene set in space? Play with another performer that you admire? Maybe there is something you would love to do but have never had the chance – This is your chance! Whatever your improv wish, Santa will try to make it come true!

Send 1 – 3 wishes to Minder by email by 7pm on Wednesday 6th December for the best chance of having a wish come true. If you don’t send a wish, don’t worry! You can still join in on Thursday and we can try to include any wishes you think of on the night.

What else will there be?

  • A Missimp band – For Christmas songs AND to help with any musical improv wishes
  • Christmas Tree shaped (triangle) snacks – Lee has offered to bake – if anyone else wants to contribute, we won’t complain!
  • Missimpers dressing up as elves, Santa and Christmas plague doctors – feel free to join in by dressing up in something Christmassy/amusing.

Sometimes people say the nicest things!

Three Weeks

“Fun, inclusive improv. Their patent talent is refreshing, the pace never slackens.”


“A whirlwind of different locations and characters, with funny and gloriously bizarre scenarios rolling straight off of the tip of the performers’ tongues to come to life milliseconds after they’d been thought up.”

Hi There!

During the coronavirus outbreak, MissImp has continued to offer entirely free online activities for our community, including commissioning an ongoing series of paid virtual drop-ins from improvisers around the world, fortnightly online Gorilla Burger shows and more. If you’d like to help us keep these activities going and keep our lights on we’d be immensely grateful. Together, we can get through this.
