Bringing Improv Comedy To Derby
This Saturday we’re defying the gods of fire who rained destruction on the Assembly Rooms last month (they had to cancel the gig and everything) - we’re bringing an introductory crash course in improved comedy to Derby instead.
Based in the Club Rooms (in the arches of the Guildhall Theatre) we’ll be teaching the basic techniques and ideas that make improvisation such enormous fun and such a great tool for any creative activity. This is for anyone from beginners to people who have never heard of improv and to those wishing to brush up on some old skills.
Nick and Parky will guide you through games and exercises that bring out the best in everyone in an informal, supportive and fun environment. This workshop is ideal for anyone with even the slightest interest in how to make things up, make people laugh (including yourself) or learn a new skill. Improv is a perfect complement to theatre, drama, music and performances of all kinds.
Give it a go, you might just surprise yourself.
Book your place online at Derby Live.

Improv Comedy: New, Unique, Awesome
Nottingham’s only takes all comers experimental comedy night
This is our jam show where anyone can get on stage and perform in a thrilling mix of comedy, inspiration and glorious chance, as frequently recommended by LeftLion in their pick of the week.
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).
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.
This month we’ll be having a Fisticuffs team giving us a dose of mono as well as tonnes of games and scenes from the masses.
No previous experience required.
