Improv Nonsense presents Truth and Comedy | | Saturday 18 January 2020

Throw off those January Blues with our first Improv Nonsense of the year! This show has acts and performers that will take truth and make it into comedy gold, right before your eyes. Whether its our teams finding out what you like or a local legend telling stories from their lives, every act is going to be inspired by reality. From there it will go places we can’t begin to imagine, but it’s sure to be fascinating.

The Teams

Nonsuch Likeable Ensemble

The first act of the evening makes you, the audience, the centre of the show! Improvisers from across Nottingham will fill you with love, joy and laughter as they find out the things that make you Likeable, then turn it into an improvised delight of sketch and drama before your eyes.

The Improclaimers

Our next act are an improvised musical duo; The lmproclaimers. The audience creates the set list, and The lmproclaimers craft the suggestions into an unforgettable set of pop hits. From heartfelt ballads to punk anthems, this promises to be a gig to remember.

The Vox Pops

And our finally, a sketch show to be made up on the spot, just for you. The Vox Pops are our headline act, return to the Nonsuch Studios with a comedy collage of improvised comedy! Each show a different artist, expert or local hero tell spontaneous stories from their lives. Then The Vox Pops find the funny and create a literally unrepeatable sketch show. You’ll laugh and gasp as The Vox Pops jump between wacky worlds and serious situations, introduce you to funny characters and find the comedy in truth.
