This week’s jam: T-Minus 7 Days
This week’s jam artiste is: Santa
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.
Thursday 18th December
8 Stoney Street
Entry Price: £3
We’re back in 2015 with Gorilla Burger on Thursday 8th January!
This week’s jam: Minutes Three to Six Redux
This week’s jam artiste is: Parky
Lots of our improv scenes start with a ‘hello’ or with two people meeting. Boring! This week we’re going to avoid all those pleasantries and do loads of scenes and games where we meet the two of you part way through your scene.
Imagine that your scene is 10 minutes long and we’re looking at the middle few minutes. Assume you’ve been talking/doing something for a while and don’t end your scene with a conclusion or a goodbye. We’ll end the scene when it feels right and at a time when there’s clearly more to come.
Sound fun? Sure does. Come along and warm your cockles in front of the fire of majesterial improv.

TOMORROW IS SHOWTIME! MISSIMP IN ACTION AT THE GLEE CLUB
This Friday – Once More With Feeling
Nottingham’s only monthly improv comedy show
Friday 28th November at The Glee Club
This month we bring you music, improvisation and comedy all wrapped up into a neat pre-Christmas package. Our dear friends Heather & Joe from the award-winning The Maydays are joining us on stage to add singing and music to the finest show on Earth.
You only get one chance to see this – and we only get one chance to do it. Entrance is just £3 for NUS and scarcely more than that if you’re lucky enough to have gainful employment. Drinks, seats and comedy are just some of the treats in store for you.
This is our last show before the end of 2014, so don’t miss out!

Slap on your ‘stache and stand on stage
Thursday 13th November
Gorilla Burger’s for fun and games – for getting up on stage and improvising with new folks and old friends. Chuck yer name in the hat and bite your nails with anticipation, twirl your moustache with mirth waiting for your turn to go.
Never done improv comedy? Marvellous. Done it before? Also marvellous. Like to drink and watch comedy? Ideal. Bring your own drinks to the Corner, put some cash Movember‘s way and have a laugh.
You should BRING YOUR OWN BOOZE (coz there’s no bar). It’s also a good idea to bring a jumper (it is nearly winter, or something). And a moustache (it’ll keep you warm).
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 night we close out with Fisticuffs doing something as yet unspecified (that’s a good thing).
Zero previous experience required.
