BIG NOTE: we’re at Broadway Cinema throughout May & June! This week’s drop-in: Standing, Sitting, Silliness Brought to you by Lee. It’s time to break the rules! This week Lee will be (metaphorically) putting red noses on your faces and constraints on your behaviour. Expect to say less, and do
Gorilla Burger – Mayhem! LET’S GO! It’s time for our monthly bout of joy – slinging names and games in and out of the hat to produce a super-low key, maximum-fun jam show! BIG NOTE: we’re at Broadway Cinema this week (for the Malt Cross still has a soggy bottom)!
A great actor can play anyone in any situation, but you don’t often see people lining up around the block to see the most critically adored actors. You usually see people lining up to see the stars with genuine charisma like Al Pacino, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, George Clooney, Will
This week’s drop-in social: A Mayan Adventure Brought to you by Ben. Due to the ongoing work at the Malt Cross, we aren’t able to get to our normal room this week so it’s high time we had another social! After the last time was so much fun we are
HEADS UP! We are not at Malt Cross for the next few weeks as they’ve got a hideous flooding problem to resolve! Instead, we’re upstairs at The Castle pub this week. Plus there is no drop-in next week (25 April) – we’ll be sorting out some social fun instead. This week’s drop-in:
This week’s drop-in: Let’s Monologue Brought to you by Richard. “Alas, poor Yorick…” sure, that’s more of a soliloquy, but you get the idea. We use monologues in improv as the inspiration for different kinds of improv show, from the very brief personal glimpses at the beginning of the Smash
This week’s drop-in: Specific/Explicit Brought to you by Ben. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Two improvisers get up on stage. They spend the first half of the scene interacting with what might be a relationship or a premise, and it’s clear nobody really knows what’s going on!
This week’s drop-in: Whose Line Brought to you by Nick. The eponymous game of the amazing improv radio and TV show Whose Line Is It Anyway?, a staple of shortform shows and one of my favourite games of all time. I love it because of the apparent randomness the lines
Gorilla Burger – Mad March! Woah, somehow it’s halfway through March already! Get your game on tonight with Cupid’s improv games and scenes where YOU are the star! This month, Ben will direct the action, leading players into our new long-form sections as well as the jam! Alongside the usual
This week’s drop-in: Finding a Tree in a Wood Brought to you by Jack. Sometimes we get suggestions that are generic or don’t pique our interest enough to get our comedy flowing. This week’s workshop is about generating ideas as a group before scenes begin, to help us find that
This week’s drop-in: All By Myself – Soloprov Made Easy! Brought to you by Emily. We all know improv is a team sport, but what happens on those rare occasions when you find yourself completely alone on stage? Do you panic? Freeze up? Flee? NO! You take a deep breath
This week’s drop-in: Super Agreement Brought to you by Richard. So there is an improviser named Katy Schutte (author of a great book called The Improviser’s Way: A Longform Workbook) who wrote about the improv phenomenon of pimping as follows: “When we ask someone to ‘read that poem you’ve been
