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.

At 9pm, The Vox Pops take the stage, creating comedy from true stories – as told by special guest, Annie (of Annie’s Burger Shack)!

MissImp and Friends at the Leicester Comedy Festival 2018!

February is cold and miserable, right? WRONG! MissImp is bringing some fantastic shows to the Leicester Comedy Festival, and some of our chums are out too! Take a look at what we’ll be hitting Leicester with! Snap up those tickets before they all vanish…

______________________________________________

Rhymes Against Humanity


MissImp’s own musical team is bringing their unique brand of improvised insanity to Leicester! What Andrew Lloyd Webber has years to work on these performers must perform instantly, with no scripts, no conferring, no pre-planning, just totally spontaneous musical madness! The genius minds of such hit musicals as “Cannibals In Love”, “Techno Dancing Queen” and “It Came From The Gunge Tanks In The Abandoned Nickelodeon Studios” reunite to create an hour-long musical complete with characters, storylines, music and choreography.

The Clones


Witness the incredible, as improvised duo THE CLONES take to the stage. With no script, no staging, and only a pair of chairs for a set, they spin a simple audience suggestion into a hilarious, spontaneous show. Plots and sub-plots galore, and a whole cast of characters effortlessly juggled by the two improvisers. This is comedy theatre like you’ve never seen it before. You will laugh, you may cry… Who knows what’ll happen? They sure don’t. Join two of the Midland’s best improvisers – Lloydie James Lloyd (The Maydays/Rhymes Against Humanity) and Liam Webber (“Extraordinary Performer” -The Scotsman) – for an hour of improvised wonder!

The Fall of Byron Montrose; Poet, Gentleman, Lover


Ben Macpherson (The Vox Pops, Millions of Voices) will be taking to the stage as his lyrical alter-ego, Byron Montrose.
Don Juan meets Milton Jones in the pun filled Adventure; Byron has delighted sell-out crowds at the Nottingham Comedy Festival, the Student Fringe Festival, and the Edinburgh Fringe. The fall of Byron Montrose tells the tale of a lost romantic poet as he deals with love, opium and Napoleon. A Daring story of exile, lust and laudanum. From one of Nottingham’s most promising comedians, The Fall of Byron Montrose; Poet, Gentleman, Lover is silly, witty and just a little bit naughty.

Happily Never After


If Rhymes Against Humanity got you craving more musicals, more improv, and more Lloydie James Lloyd, then look no further than the smash-hit Happily Never After. Award-winning improvisers The Maydays present this skin-prickling tale full of black comedy and haunting music, inspired by the warped imaginations of Tim Burton, Lemony Snicket and the Brothers Grimm. Starting with your suggestion, The Maydays take you on a bone-chilling journey, meeting the grotesque and the innocent, weaving a fantastical story that’s different every time.
