Improv Comedy For All
Nottingham’s only free for all 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.
No previous experience required.

In brief then: we returned to The Glee Club Nottingham for our regular monthly show. We fielded nine players to a decent little audience – just forty or so (who I coerced with loving words into a fine and fizzing audience. Lots of shortform nonsense which felt very fun. I cannot now recall and of my scenes… I like to think that is a good sign. Plus we went out afterwards till ghastly o’clock to celebrate Geoff’s 50th birthday.

This week’s jam: Takin’ It Slow
This week’s jam is run by: Ben.
It’s all about taking it slow. Building on some of the ideas raised at last weekend’s workshop with Heather & Jules on intimacy and naturalism, we are going to be looking at a slower style of play using fewer words and silence.… …. …
Yes, fewer words and silence. We are going to be playing more reactive scenes and look at getting ultra specific with the few things we have at the top of a scene, not rushing to find the funny thing but trusting that it will come up in its own time.
Emotion is going to be core this week and there will be open scenes a-plenty.
