Improv Drop-In: Thursday 23 January 2020

Why are improvisers told to not ask questions? What’s wrong with questions? What do I do if I do ask a question? Will I get in trouble? Will my scene partner support me? What am I supposed to do instead? What do I do if I’m asked a question? Do

Reviews

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.”

“The funniest Friday night available in Nottingham.”

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.
