Hey crew,

For those of us running jams, organising shows and thinking about developmental stuff, here’s a bunch of stuff I’ve either found or stolen. I think it would be cool to keep adding to this, so if you find anything useful or happen to make a list of exercises or tongue-twisters, email them in and I’ll upload them for everyone. We can also make additions using the comments at the bottom. Awesome.

Games Lists

Improv Games – most of the games we play, including some of the sillier warm ups (no descriptions)

Improv Encyclopaedia – definitive, massive, awesome


The Living PlayBook – a really cool bunch of games and ideas

Fuzzy’s Games List – we play a lot of these, and you might have a paper copy too. Lacks descriptions for some games.

Sometimes people say the nicest things!

The Metro

“Local improv heroes.”


“Charmed the audience through their enthusiasm and humour.”

“Unique performances that have the audience in stitches.”

Nottingham Evening Post

“Totally bizarre, funny and enthralling. Staggeringly brave. An entertaining set of characters, some great one-liners: incredibly satisfying.”

Reyt Good Magazine

“One of the best comedy nights I have ever been to.”

Three Weeks

“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.”

Behind the Arras

“A strong, professional, highly skilled and thoroughly entertaining performance.”

Weekend Notes

“High on imagination, performance and delivery.”

“Very sharp, quick witted & incredibly funny.”

“The jam at the end made the night perfect.”

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.
