Gorilla Burger & MissImp Christmas Awards 2021 | | Thursday 9 December 2021

It’s that time of the year again – MissImp is bringing back the MissImp Awards!

Dead important: we’re now back at our beloved Malt Cross, in the workshop under the main bar area.

Your evening of live improvised comedy carnage returns! It’s theatre karaoke where you can be the star, this time with added MissImp Awards!

At Gorilla Burger you can get up on stage whether you’ve played before or not. Hugely supportive and tons of fun, this is a delightful way for you to experience improvised comedy. 

Let us know at the start if you want to join in the fun or you can just sit back, enjoy an evening of unplanned, uncensored improv comedy theatre with a pint from the bar.

MissImp Awards

It’s the glitziest night of the year, where we celebrate everyone in our community!

The fun part is, the awards come from YOU GUYS! A Google Form with the confirmed attendees will be shared on 29th November, for you to submit your suggestions of nominations to suit each person. The best ones get picked! When you get called up to do a scene at Gorilla Burger, you’ll also be given your award!

Dress Code: Those who dress very fancy receive more kudos – it is entirely optional, but encouraged!

COVID safety: please ensure that you take a COVID test tomorrow before attending (and have it come up negative, obviously!), and bring a mask – you may wish to wear one when not performing, and for going to the bar upstairs as we expect that to be pretty full.

Age Recommendation: 18+

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 below.

“Fun, inclusive improv. Their patent talent is refreshing, the pace never slackens.”

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.
