Improv Comedy Every Thursday

At Malt Cross

Fancy getting involved? Come along to one of our fun, welcoming, drop-in sessions.

Our drop-in sessions are perfect for absolute beginners who’ve never been on stage! You don’t need any experience in comedy, improv, acting, etc and you don’t have to be “funny” or “witty” or “clever”. As long as you’re willing to throw yourself in and have some fun, this is the perfect place for you!

You’ll get to do loads of improv scenes and games within a loose workshop structure, combining skills development with all sorts of fun and games. The sessions are led by experienced MissImp performers and teachers in a fun, supportive, and welcoming atmosphere. They focus on different aspects of improv but are mainly about learning, having fun, and doing some great scenes together.

Whether you’re new to improv and you simply want to have fun or a hardened improv veteran, we can’t wait to see you at the next session!


On the second Thursday of each month the drop-in transforms into Gorilla Burger – a show open to the public. Everyone can get on stage and perform – although you’re also welcome to come along, watch and cheer. Buy your drinks upstairs and bring them down.
