MissImp is the Nottingham comedy scene’s improv group. We’re a monthly resident at The Glee Club and you can find us improvising wildly elsewhere too. Comedy improv is the fusion of sketch and theatre, with the script lying ignored on the floor. We’ll take you to places you’ve never been… they may only exist in the gap between your suggestion and the yawning emptiness between our ears. We’ll fill them with the weird and wonderful – characters of jabbering insanity driven by the random engines of improvisation.
This week’s jam: Put Yer Name In An Hat
This week’s improv jam is run by: Martin
Your names shall be placed into the hat of dreams, then extracted and married to a card drawn from the mysterious hat of games. Once wedded you shall play the game with your designated partner. Names and games and no frills, unless they emerge on their own.

This week’s jam: Giz a Story
This week’s improv jam is run by: Nick
We will, of course, be mostly playing games and amusing ourselves and each other but with some exercises and games to encourage and consider narrative and consequential action. Big words, sure… It’s all about cause and effect, one thing happening because of another. Anyway, we’ll be doing stuff which emphasises the overall story and the parts we play in it. And messing about.

It’s the last MissImp Glee show of the year!
This time we’ve got music
Start your month of happy boozing and indulgence early with us this Friday. What with it being nearly Christmas and all we’re celebrating by inviting Heather & Joe, two of our friends from Brighton’s award-winning The Maydays to join us on stage and add music and singing to the mix.
We bring you entirely unplanned adventures, scenes, sketches, games and songs from the darkest depths of our imaginations. You give us the suggestions, we turn them inside out. We’re on in just a few days – and you can seize your tickets now.
Fight off the terrifying imminence of Christmas
We are the only show in town bringing you a gorgeous blend of seasoned old pros and brand new improv comedy talent. Brilliant and weird enough to shake all thought of what you want for Christmas from your mind.
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 29th November. Book your tickets here and we’ll see you on Friday.

The Monday Mayhem Show features fresh improv talent from up and coming improvisors mixed in with some more experienced performers. Short form improv games and a bit of longer stuff thrown in. Hosted by Geoff.
Over the past few weeks there have been two courses running for new and more experienced improvisors. If you come along on Monday you’ll get to see the future improv talent of Nottingham raw and unleashed. There will be laughs-a-plenty. See you there!
If you can’t make Monday, we hope to see you Friday!
