Improv Jam: Thursday 16th January 2014

This week’s jam: The Sound of Improv

This week’s improv jam is run by: James

SoundzOfMoozikA lot of sounds we hear in our improv jams are usually from our mouth words, and every so often we force ourselves to add sound effects using our mouths on and off stage to help bring our scenes to life more. This Thursday, we’re going to dive back into the world of sound effects and improv!

You will explore different ways of creating sounds such as foley, vocal foley, sound effects, musical sounds and other types to challenge our improv games.

A foley table, mic setup, and sound system will be provided on the night, and also a welcome return to The Mysterious Wheel of Sound Effect Judgement!

Four things will be required…

1. Your lovely selves
2. Your weird and crazy voices
3. Some props that make all kinds of sounds for our foley scenes.
4. A hand to help quickly set it all up

There is even further reading and some videos James linked to previously at The Sound Of Improv.

wpid-Gorilla-Burger2_SQ_SM.jpgWe’re at The Corner with Gorilla Burger this Thursday!

Our last show of the year and it’s one for everyone – you, yes you can get on stage (if you want) and shake your festive improv tailfeathers. We’ll also be interspersing the comedy with the (equally entertaining) MissImp Awards 2013, recognising brilliance and anything that anyone’s been nominated for.

Join us – even LeftLion says you should in their Pick of the Week. And they’re bound to be right, after all we live in the same building.

Bring your own drinks (yes – the boozy kind) and maybe a jumper and celebrate the death of December with MissImp.

Unspeakable Acts – Theatre on Bath Salts – Tuesday 19th November 2013

Unspeakable Acts_SQ

Unspeakable Acts – A Deadly Mind Trip into Theatre

We bring you a mutant hybrid of scripted drama and improvised comedy – taking the best / worst of Hollywood and showing you the film that plays out when our improvisers get their kaleidoscopic brains on it.

The players will begin performing a scripted play chosen by the audience; as the show progresses, the script is distorted, violated and abandoned. In its place we will create a new narrative, a squalid perversion of the playwright’s intentions or a beautiful butterfly made of broken dreams.

Challenging, deviant, endlessly inventive and surprising. Oh – and funny. Funny is important too.

MissImp in Action – Improv Comedy Show Friday 27th September 2013 at The Glee Club

Punch Autumn in the Funny Face

A Brave New World

MissImp_in_Action-SQ2We are massively excited to be back at The Glee Club in a few days time with the Nottingham Comedy Festival – you should be there too.

This show just gets more exciting, fresh and ingenious: we’re mutating, evolving and bulging unique comedy muscles that we’re keen to show off in front of you lovely folks.

A Unique Line Up

We are the only show in town bringing you a gorgeous blend of brand new improv comedy talent, some of whom have never graced a comedy stage with their faces before! And that’s just the start…

We give you short form comedy from Mayhem Improv playing games to make you laugh and torment the players. We follow that with quick fire lateral Marvels of Montage with familiar faces and uncommon wits.

In the second half your beloved Glee team give you an Assscat taking inspiration from stories and then finally, after a night of incomparable unpreparedness Unspeakable Acts present a film or play you know and love in a totally different way.

There’s nothing like improvised comedy – it’s unique and different every single time. You will NEVER see the same scene twice, so come along and enjoy comedy that is for your eyes only.

This month’s show is on Friday 27th September and you can book your tickets here.
