MissImp 20th Anniversary Celebration Jam – Thursday 18 October 2018

MISSIMP 20TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION JAM

Nottingham’s homegrown improvised theatre company MissImp celebrates its twentieth year with a whole weekend of comedy entertainment! Featuring five shows across two venues, ranging from full musicals to lightning fast skits, plus two free workshops, it’s sure to be a birthday like no other!

On Thursday, 18th October we’re thrilled to take over the newly reopened Malt Cross, where the original MissImp cast from 20 years ago are reuniting for one night only, followed by a showcase of our top talent, and a jam where anyone and everyone can take part!

MissImp has existed for TWENTY years! In that time we’ve come a long way, from our very first show ever, at the Malt Cross, to um… the Malt Cross! Tonight the whole of the pub is ours, and we present a celebration show featuring the original line up of MissImp (or Mission: Improbable as it was back then), followed by a titanic Gorilla Burger jam show in the bar.
This will be the perfect night to find out what the Nottingham improvised comedy scene is, and for everyone who’s ever attended a drop-in, watched a show, or appeared on stage with us. Let’s bring it all together and have a wicked night of comedy and spontaneity.
This is the celebration you’ve been looking for.

“HIGH ON IMAGINATION, PERFORMANCE, AND DELIVERY” – Weekend Notes

On Thursday, 18th October we’re thrilled to take over the newly reopened Malt Cross, where the original MissImp cast from 20 years ago are reuniting for one night only, followed by a showcase of our top talent, and a jam where anyone and everyone can take part!

“TOTALLY BIZARRE, FUNNY AND ENTHRALLING.” – Nottingham Evening Post

On Friday, 19th October we present a double bill of improvised comedy at the Nottingham Playhouse: at 7pm, The Vortex, our sell-out all-female team, will perform an hour-long play inspired by a single word from the audience. At 9pm, The Vox Pops take the stage, creating comedy from true stories – as told by special guest, Annie (of Annie’s Burger Shack)!


“UNIQUE PERFORMANCES THAT HAVE THE AUDIENCE IN STITCHES.” – LeftLion

Our final night on Saturday, 20th October continues the celebration, with Rhymes Against Humanity bringing an entirely improvised musical to Nottingham Playhouse at 7pm! Our weekend concludes with Smash Night at 9pm, pitching our monthly show from The Angel onto the Neville Studio stage for a special performance filled with improvisers old and new.

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.
