On Stage Comic Carnage This Thursday
We’re at 8 Stoney Street with Gorilla Burger!
Part jam, part show, this is a chance to get on stage and play. ANYONE can perform whether you have experience or not, whether you’ve ever improvised or not – or just come and enjoy the show. We want YOU.
Anyone who wants to play can throw their name into a hat and take to the stage when it’s drawn out.
An opportunity to meet cool people, improvise on stage, see what improv comedy is and have fun.
For regular MissImp folk, please note that Gorilla Burger takes place instead of the weekly jam!
Bring your own drinks!

This week’s jam is run by: Nick
This week we’ll be capitalising on the excellent work done in the last three jams – inspiring ourselves and our scene partners by trusting them, listening to them and responding to them. It doesn’t matter if you’ve attended the last few weeks – it’s still improv!
We’ll be taking our inspiration initially from excerpt from a terrible novel, finding out what that inspires in us and using it to create short scenes in small groups, which then lead to another short scene and another… Like magic. Except real, in that it won’t just be a trick. You can only cheat yourself.
Thursday 2nd May
8 Stoney Street
Entry Price: £2
Fair warning notice – next week the price of the jam goes up to £3 – sorry!
