Your choice: Laugh or listen to Sledgehammer on repeat


Peter Gabriel will be 64 years old on Thursday. If you’ve never heard of the former Genesis frontman, you’ve missed out on literally a handful of avant-garde hits including Sledgehammer, the bizarre Games Without Frontiers and Solsbury Hill: the best tune ever about a spiritual experience on a tor in Somerset.

If you do own a copy of the So album or you’re a massive fan of the humanitarian, this Thursday brings you two choices. You can sit at home and enjoy his obscure late 70s oeuvre (perhaps Peter Gabriel 2/Scratch from 1978?) or you can celebrate the great man’s birthday in style by coming along to The Corner for this month’s Gorilla Burger show.

Gorilla Burger is our jam show where anyone can get on stage and perform in a thrilling mix of comedy, inspiration and glorious chance.This is an excellent opportunity to shake your improv booty or just meet some folks and get a feel for what we do here in MissImp.

Tickets just £4 on the door. You should BRING YOUR OWN BOOZE (coz there’s no bar).

Anyone can play. Put your name in the hat and come up and do a scene (or a shortform game from the other hat if you like). We’ll pick names out of the hat and performers will get to try out playing with new people – or even playing for the very first time. No previous experience required.

This month we’ll have a short showcase from our latest batch of Level 3 students, a range of fast-paced names and games and a visit or two to a quaint village of your choosing. Oh, and you’ll also catch a glimpse of some big budget shows heading for the West End in the near future. You may even get to audition for a part.
