Improv Nonsense | | Saturday 2 October 2021

MissImp proudly presents a showcase of spur of the moment comedy and theatre. Each performance of Improv Nonsense showcases different local and national stars of Improvised Theatre. You might see a series of duologues, a panoply of theatre games or just about anything else under the sun. One thing is certain. It’s all unscripted and guaranteed to be a one night only production.

This month, a series of extraordinary improv duets!

The Square Pegs

A brand new improv duo forged from the fires of the Midlands improv scene; Pat Robinson and Stags Woodward, aka The Square Pegs, will transport you to an emotional hinterland. Come dally a while in lives lived on the outskirts and mayhaps warm your cold, dark heart with a belly laugh or two.

The Sisters Karazmatik

Ben Pals

Ben likes to make theatre with his friends. He’s made quite a few over his decade of improv experience. The problem is he doesn’t always get to see them. Ben Pals is an improv show built from a mutual love of friendship and storytelling. Every show features Edinburgh Fringe Sellout performer Ben Macpherson and a special guest improviser as they create something wonderful for you in the spur of the moment.

Long Boi and The Noise

Joe is a diligent, hardworking and experienced improviser with big long legs and looks a bit like that conductor man off BBC2. Charlie is short and very loud. Against the wishes of anyone, they come together as Long Boi and The Noise! Just as an oyster takes a grain of sand and produces a pearl, Joe and Charlie will take audience suggestions and plunge them into the deepest depths of the ocean where no one can hear you scream. Saddle up, sit back, start clapping…
