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.

“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.

SMASH NIGHT at The Angel Microbrewery – Wednesday 28 February 2017

Sod the snow: it’s SMASH NIGHT!

Never-seen-before… Never-to-be-seen-again! Watch in amazement as some of the finest improv teams around live life on the edge, experiment and push the boundaries of what they do with hilarious results! Witness them take to the stage with nothing but their wits and transform YOUR suggestions spontaneously into scenes and stories bound to be breath-taking and bloody hilarious.
What more could you want from a Wednesday? Well, warmth for one thing. We advise you to wrap up warm and enjoy the show.
This week’s line-up:
Mark Craig’s Me Plus One
Mark has been performing on stage since the age of eight, and in all that time has managed to slightly improve. For the past ten years, this performing has mainly been improv and so far no one has put a stop to it. Based in Edinburgh, Mark regularly teaches improv to anyone who’ll listen and is a member of To Be Continued…, The Spontaneous Players, Four Folks Ache and any other group that needs an extra body onstage.
Tonight he will be joined on stage in a one-off twoprov that reunites him with Missimp’s own Lloydie!!

The Vox Pops
Each show they have a monologist (storyteller, to you and me) who will tell us a true story from their lives which The Vox Pops will then unpack to reveal the real meaning of the story through a cavalcade of characters and a smorgasbord of scenes. The truth has never been funnier.
And always… Smash Night Social Club
Our in-house team is a revolving cast of longtime vets of the improv scene. This ragtag collection of comedy cowboys play fast ’n’ loose with the rules (and their metaphors), throw off the hand brake, and whisk you away to a place you never dreamed of.

Tonight is SMASH NIGHT at The Angel Microbrewery – Wednesday 27 September 2017

We’re Back! Let’s Smash It.

Never-seen-before… Never-to-be-seen-again! Watch in amazement as some of the finest improv teams around live life on the edge, experiment and push the boundaries of what they do with hilarious results! Witness them take to the stage with nothing but their wits and transform YOUR suggestions spontaneously into scenes and stories bound to be breath-taking and bloody hilarious.

What more could you want from a Wednesday?

Tonight’s line-up:

THE CLONES
Witness the incredible as The Clones take to the stage. With no script, no staging, and only a pair of chairs for a set, Liam and Lloydie spin a simple audience suggestion into hilarious, spontaneous entertainment. Plots and sub-plots galore, and a whole cast of characters effortlessly juggled by the two improvisers. You will laugh, you may cry… Who knows what’ll happen? They sure don’t.

THE VOX POPS
The Voxpops are a Missimp House team who turn true stories into great comedy. You’ll never guess the twists a story can take with the Vox Pops and the truth has never been funnier.

PLUS

SMASH NIGHT SOCIAL CLUB
Our in-house team is a revolving cast of the brightest and boldest of the improv scene. This ragtag collection of comedy cowboys play fast ’n’ loose with the rules (and their metaphors), throw off the hand brake, and whisk you away to a place you never dreamed of.

Spinning your suggestions into scenes and stories, characters and creatures, myths and monsters! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you may even find yourself questioning everything you ever knew… Only one thing’s for certain when these guys hit the stage: you ain’t in Kansas any more, punk!
