Live improvised comedy continues with Smash Night!

Come and give your laughter muscles a work out with FOUR great acts from Nottingham and beyond performing hilarious scenes and games for your amusement.

Join us at our new venue the Playwright for a Wednesday evening filled with lots of fun, laughter and a bit of silliness!

~~~Shortlisted for Improv Show of the Year in the 2019 Phoenix Remix Awards!~~~

Acts this month:

Improvoke

The mashup of improv and karaoke you never knew you needed! Enjoy musical mayhem made up on the spot by madcap wonder duo Jen Kenny & Hannah Platts and their randomised playlist of karaoke backing tracks. Witness the hilarity as these improv maestros put their fates squarely in the hands of the shuffle gods… will they end up singing a love song to Sabaton, rapping about bagels or winning a school sports day to a 90s rave classic? Come along and find out!

Dinoprov

More than 66 million years ago Tyrannosaurus Rex bros Elliott and Staggs wowed the cretaceous period with very unique short improv scenes full of rip roaring energy. Possessing inflatable powers of time travel the Dinosaurs have returned to bring you something sharp toothed and very memorable.

Ersatz Natterjack

One man and two books create one impossible story.

Smash Night Social Club

A selection of the finest improvisers from the Nottingham scene, some of them wily old veterans, some fresh to the stage. They gather to serve up a fine feast of fun – who knows what they’ll produce this time?!
