Once more, Nottingham Comedy Festival is upon us!

Along with the already staggering number of excellent shows on, we’re hosting an improv comedy stage at our beloved Malt Cross.

Spread across the first and second weekends, we’ve our amazing local teams The Vox Pops, EPIC!, Denise’s 50th, Improvised Stars Wars and UON Improv, plus incredible visitors Project2, Neil + 1, and Do The Right Scene and we’re holding two All-Star Shows featuring the finest humans of the local scene and beyond!

Seriously, it’s a lot of really good stuff.

If you fancy taking a workshop we’re swapping our regular Thursday drop-in for a taster session aimed specifically at new folk (everyone is always welcome!), and three masterclasses with Katy Schutte, Chris Mead and Neil Curran.

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.
