It's A Trap! The Improvised Star Wars Show at Squire's Comedy Superday | | Saturday 11 November 2023

It’s A Trap! explores untold stories of the Star Wars universe, packed with Jedi, jokes and jawas. A handful of audience suggestions creates a unique episode before your eyes – complementing and breaking the canon in unexpected and ingenious ways! Truly geeky, hilarious entertainment – this IS the show you’re looking for. IT’S A TRAP! is a Best Improv Show finalist at Leicester Comedy Festival 2022, and has left audiences on the funny side of the Force, up and down the country. Smart, sharp, geeky and packed with pop culture, you don’t need to know a thing about the Star Wars franchise to enjoy this show.

Squire Performing Arts Centre and Late Stage Comedy are proud to present the All Day Comedy Fest, part of the 15th anniversary edition of Nottingham Comedy Festival.

Throughout the day we’ll have dozens and dozens acts from the biggest comedians to breakthrough new acts taking to the three stages featuring a mix of stand up, musical comedy, improv and much more.

Featuring sets from Ignacio Lopez (Live at the Apollo), Steve Royle (Britain’s Got Talent), John Robertson (creator of The Dark Room), improv from MissImp’s It’s A Trap (as seen at Nottingham Playhouse), Harriet Dyer (The Russell Howard Hour) and much, much more!

Your ticket will allow you access to all comedians on the day and also give you a guaranteed seat in the lower auditorium for one of the shows on the main stage – wristbands will be handed out on the day. First come, first served for availability for each show.

Whilst space will be limited for each stage and getting in early is recommended to guarantee your seat, especially for the shows on the smaller stages, there will always be availability in at least one stage for each ticket holder.

The venue has a fully stocked bar and will have a pair of fantastic food trucks including vegetarian and vegan options!

There are also special early bird prices, so don’t delay – tickets for this are going to fly!

Please note the line up and timings may change before the day.
