Acts this month

Where’s My Gravy?

An improv troupe of Sheffield based folk. For over a decade now, we’ve been making up songs and telling characterful stories. We love to smash the two together and bring peace to all people as a result (well, make them laugh at least). Where’s My Gravy? – guaranteed to change your life (please note, performances may not change your life)

Mockbusters

We need your help! Mockbusters are here to entertain you with a fun, fast paced improv gameshow… but without your suggestions we are nothing. Come along and gift us with your presence, suggestions and help with scoring. Prepare to be both entertained by our enthusiasm and frustrated by our lack of knowledge. Either way we can’t do it without you.

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?!
