MissImp back in action

Improv Comedy Every Thursday

We're back in action! Now playing out in the park every Thursday (unless it's horrible weather...)

Improv Playtime Sessions 

The perfect intimate opportunity to practice some of our favourite improv games, and stretch out those improvising muscles. We’re playing outside for now, so can have a maximum of 30 attendees. Please book in advance. No set cost – pay what you feel and are able.

Gorilla Burger Jam Shows

We’re running Virtually Gorilla Burger out in the park, or online through Zoom if the weather is grim! 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.

Virtual Pub

Every Thursday since March 2020 we’ve been hanging out in a Virtual Pub on Zoom. Low key, strictly for chatting and general socialising, we use breakout rooms to chat in smaller groups and all-round catch-ups. It’s been a lifesaver.  With us slowly returning to life, these are now a little more erratic! You’re welcome to join us: send us a message or join the MissImp Members Facebook group to get the link.

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.

Sometimes people say the nicest things!

“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.”

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.
