We know January’s been a horrid shock to the system and we’re here to help you get back on track. 2015 is the year of the badger, chair and cyborg eye: let us guide you into it with a night of unscripted, fizzing comedy.
Our show is a vigorously blended puree of theatre, drama and comedy, garnished with questionable sanity and poured into a comfortable glass. We bring you entirely unplanned adventures, scenes, sketches, games and songs from the darkest depths of our imaginations. You give us the suggestions for every scene and we filter them through our mind engines before setting them upon you. Don’t delay – seize your tickets today .
This month’s show is on Friday 30th January. Book your tickets here and we’ll warm your seats for Friday.

This week’s jam: Feeelings!
This week’s master of jamremonies is Ben.
Feelings! We all have them, some of us are better at expressing them than others – same is true of people and the characters we play in improv. This week we are going to be looking at the dramatic and theatrical aspects of Improv especially. But fret not comedy fans, emotion is also a great way to bring out comedy in our scenes whilst grounding our characters.
In this jam we are going into full on emotional overdrive including such things as gurning, grotesqueprov, cartoon improv as well as playing on different levels of emotion and riding emotional roller coasters. There will be more feelings in this jam than in a therapist’s office. We will end with a load of scenes. Your Thursday night will be funny and dramatic.

Happy New year!
MissImp have awoken from Christmas hibernation
Thursday 8th January
Yup, we’re shaking off the sedation of the season, tugging out that ursine plug, raging at the return to work and seeking joy in January.
We have the brain cure – Gorilla Burger! It’s a live show for anyone and everyone – all you have to do is put your name in the hat, get it magically drawn forth and find yourself on stage doing something awesome and funny.
We give you an evening of spontaneous entertainment topped off with something special by Ben and Gareth. There will also be lots of multiplayer games, plenty of drinking and a great bunch of people. It is always an awesome evening out – whether you take part or not.
This is an excellent opportunity to shake your improv booty or just meet some folks and get a feel for what we do here in MissImp – this is live, unscripted comedy theatre.
You should BRING YOUR OWN BOOZE (coz there’s no bar). It’s also a good idea to bring a jumper (it is January, you know).
Anyone can play. Put your name in the hat and come up and do a scene (or a shortform game from the other hat if you like). We’ll pick names out of the hat and performers will get to try out playing with new people – or even playing for the very first time. And, there may even be a short MissImp improv set for you to enjoy.
No previous experience required.

It’s the last jam before Christmas – cause for much confused sadfacedness and delight. This week we’re going to make up the words for our favourite Christmas carols, toss some Henrys about and do scenes based on our vaguest memories and ideas of this Yuleish period.
