Gorilla Burger – Improv Comedy Carnage – TONIGHT!

NCF On Stage Action

Woo, join us for the finest improvised comedy fuckabout evening in the Midlands.  Tonight is the time for anyone to get on stage and have a go, in the comfort of an immensely supportive room, filled with wildly enthusiastic humans (mostly humans).

New to improvised comedy? No worries. We promise you’ll have a great time. We’ll match you up (randomly) with other humans and together you’ll create scenes and play games that defy reason, imagination and sometimes, comedy. It is all marvellous.

Of course, you don’t have to perform! You can remain happily anonymous in the audience, settle back with a pint and enjoy the show.

It’s probably the best mash up of cleverness, silliness, drinking and theatre you’ll find.

Gorilla Burger – Improv Comedy Carnage – Thursday 14 September 2017

Time to Put Your Improvising Shoes On

Hurray, it’s here at last! That fantastic mid-month opportunity to cut loose and go wild. This Thursday is Gorilla Burger and we’re going to play games and scenes all night. It’s a great way to explore the local improv community, meet some folks, have some drinks and do some cool things. The focus is always on maximum fun and support.

This month the ever-charming and not-at-all-sweary Nick will be bellowing and guiding you through the show.

New to improvised comedy? No worries. We promise you’ll have a great time. We’ll match you up (randomly) with other humans and together you’ll create scenes and play games that defy reason, imagination and sometimes, comedy. It is all marvellous.

Gorilla Burger – Improv Comedy Carnage – Thursday 13 July 2017

Hot Dawg!

Maybe you’ve been to one of our MANY shows recently (Millions of Voices, Smash Night, MissImp in Action…) and were wondering what else we do – well, this is a great way to find out.

Gorilla Burger is a super-relaxed get up and do it show/jam, where anyone can get on stage and take part. It helps that most of the performers will be drinking, chilling, and indulging in the supportive atmosphere of the night. Bring a mate for support / peer pressure / to buy you drinks and have a fine time.

Improv Drop-In: Thursday 6 April 2017

This week’s drop-in: Knowing Me, Knowing You (Aha!)

Brought to you by Parky.

How many scenes have you witnessed where more than half of it deals with the two people actually meeting for the first time? Saying ‘hello’, finding out what people’s names are, and how they are doing is rarely the most important bit of a scene. What we really want to get to is the juicy bit – what these people are up to, where they are, and how they know each other.

So, we’re going to repeat one of the most productive sessions we do. Every scene will start half way through, meaning that you’re already part of the way through a conversation, and past all the ‘hello, how are you?’ stage.

What does this do? It means we get to the action faster. It means that you start your scene with the assumption that you know information and details about your scene partner. There’s at least a three minute back-story, (and often a lot more).

An evening of watching the middle, interesting bit of scenes. Lovely.

Improv Drop-In: Thursday 23 March 2017

This week’s drop-in: You Can, And You Will, Handle the Truth

Brought to you by Liam.

The truth is something we see pummelled, beaten and destroyed every day. The least we can do is fight back through improv. This week we’ll be working on listening and responding truthfully and faithfully to your character and to the moment! Y’know, the exact opposite of being a politician.
