This week’s jam: Super easy, super natural

The focus will be on making improv so easy, so natural that we don’t even need a suggestion.
What if the scene is already in front of you, without you needing to invent things? What if we aren’t making things up – we are just dealing with what’s already there?
You’ll get to play only as far away from your own self as you need to in order to serve the scene – and then play a whole bunch of scenes for the rest of the evening.
Leave your stock characters at home as this week, unless we specifically need one in the scene, we’re not going to need that belligerent Belgian, wistful Welshman or wacky Iraqi character; we’re just going to need your natural reactions. Funtimes!

High Five for February
It’s that time of the month again – it’s time for on stage action with neither script, censorship or serious intent. We give you Marilyn, Ben, Martin, Colin, Parky and Nick to delight and invigorate your minds.
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 27th February. Book your tickets here and we’ll warm your seats for Friday.

This week’s jam: Unthpeakable!
This week’s jam is brought to you by: Nick
This week we’re digging our Unspeakable Acts scene format out from the grave of infamy in which it lies. We’ll have scripts and screenplays to start our scenes and experiment with the creation of character and narrative. Dastardly, villainous, absurd and irrelevant revisions of famous and obscure screen plays will ensue.

Put On Your Fighting Trousers
Thursday 12th February
Egad, it’s time to cheerfully imbibe while having a crack at improvising!
Gorilla Burger is a live jamming 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 including a sliver of team based action from A Weekend At The B&B* (Parky, Eddie, Jeanette, Phil and Jamie). There will also be lots of opportunity to get on stage with 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/coat/sleeping bag (it is February, 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.
