Spontaneous Comedy Theatre

Improvised comedy is unscripted and unplanned, emerging like magic from the performers on stage.

The evening is open to everyone and you’re welcome to join in whether it’s your first time or your fiftieth. Anyone can get on stage – whether you have experience or not. We want YOU.

MissImp will guide you through games and scenes to create spontaneous comedy theatre that has never been seen before and will never be seen again.

And, if you don’t want to perform, you’re still guaranteed a unique experience. Interrobang promises an evening of superb improvised comedy theatre from some of the best performers in the Midlands.Interrobang_SQ
