MissImp is one of '10 Things You'll Surely Love About Nottingham City Centre'!

Kinda random, but we accept. Nottingham Cars posted this fun little video on Facebook, in which we get all kinds of nice (and true) things said: “The city is the forerunner of improvisational comedy in the Midlands, MissImp is a growing force in the comedy scene in Nottingham.”
There are also other good Nottingham things mentioned – do them all.

While you’re here, don’t forget to book for two big shows coming up very fast, and selling out doubly so:

The Vortex // Squidheart // All-Female Improv Jam

Missimp’s fantastic all-female team The Vortex will transform a single audience suggestion into a whole fantastic show with no scripts, no conferring, and nothing preplanned!

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.
