Gorilla Burger – Christmas Awards Special Thursday 12 December 2019

This week is hosted by Emily Brady

It’s that time of the year again – MissImp is bringing back the MissImp Awards! Mashing up the usual carnage of names and games plucked from a hat of dreams with our legit knock-off Oscars ceremony, this is the perfect sayonara to 2019, and the best way to avoid all that ghastly election nonsense.  

It’s the glitziest night of the year, where we celebrate everyone in our community! The award nominations are being compiled, and they are amazing. Improvisers have been nominated for a tonne of awards and we’re looking forward to handing them out to much applause, excitement and so forth! We’ll also be presenting the MissImp Outstanding Achievement Awards. These are awards for two people who the community has adjudged to have really gone above and beyond for MissImp this year, in whatever capacity. 

When you get called up to do a scene at Gorilla Burger, you’ll also be given your award. Please note that if you haven’t already booked your place in in advance, you won’t receive a personalised award, but we promise you’ll still get a lot of love!

Dress Code: Those who dress very fancy receive more kudos (Emily will again be rocking her grad ball dress and Nick will be stuffed into a suit) but it is entirely optional!

New to all this? Ace. If you fancy having a go, we’ll pop your name in a hat with some other fabulous folk. When we draw your name it will be time to shine! We’ll pop you in a game or a scene with some of those aforementioned fabulous folk, and comedy will ensue, honest! Of course, you don’t have to perform! You can remain happily anonymous in the audience, settle back with a pint, and enjoy the show.

Sometimes people say the nicest things!

“Local improv heroes.”

“Charmed the audience through their enthusiasm and humour.”

“Unique performances that have the audience in stitches.”

“Totally bizarre, funny and enthralling. Staggeringly brave. An entertaining set of characters, some great one-liners: incredibly satisfying.”

“One of the best comedy nights I have ever been to.”

“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.”

“A strong, professional, highly skilled and thoroughly entertaining performance.”

“High on imagination, performance and delivery.”

“Laughter levels were cranked up to full wattage, which spiralled into utter hilarity.”

“A fun filled hour of geeky entertainment.”

“The bright centre of the universe.”

“The next generation of the Nottingham comedy scene.”

“This Missimp group is fucking awesome I love them. So sweet and smart and each with a distinct sense of humor. I love that.”

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.
