MissImp back in action

Improv Comedy Every Thursday

We're back in action – at the Broadway Cinema every Thursday throughout September!

Weekly Improv Drop-Ins

We’ve run a weekly drop-in workshop for improvised comedy in Nottingham since 2005! Come and check it out – everyone’s welcome to join the fun.

The perfect intimate opportunity to practice some of our favourite improv games, and stretch out those improvising muscles. Each week features training in a different set of skills, exercises, scenes, or games, facilitated by various members of the Nottingham improv community.

18+, and suitable for all levels of experience, with an emphasis on having a good time and improving everyone’s improvising experience.

Gorilla Burger Jam Shows

On the second Thursdays of the month we run Gorilla Burger! This is our jam show where you throw your name in the hat and get to play a wide range of improv theatre games and scenes with other fun and friendly people.

We play a lot of different games, some that might be new to you or have a different name. Check out our hat games list for the games we’re likely to play, and find even more games you might like to introduce from the links here: MissImp Hat Games, our regular Gorilla Burger games list which is continuously updated. Also check out the extraordinary Improv Encyclopedia, ImproWiki and the mighty Hoopla. Find a new game and bring it along!

Virtual Improv Drop-In Series

During 2020 we commissioned a series of thirty recorded improv comedy workshops from improvisers around the world on subjects ranging from musical improv, to physical energy, wellbeing through improv, to how to run a session in Zoom. There’s so much stuff here, and it’s all available for you to watch whenever you want.

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.
