Thursday 8th October 2015

The East Midlands’ favourite improv karaoke night is back this Thursday.

Gorilla Burger is a live improvised comedy show for anyone and everyone. All you have to do is put your name in the hat, wait for it to be magically drawn forth and get up on stage to do something awesome and funny.

Even if you don’t fancy having a go (although, why wouldn’t you?) you should come along and enjoy a couple of hours of unpredictable  comedy fun.

And, as a special treat this month, you’ll also get to enjoy some wonderful improvised theatre from four of MissImp’s top performance teams.

7.50pm – Wings of Wax
8.40pm – Maverick Junk
9.00pm – JJB Sports
9.50pm – Rumblestrips

Gorilla Burger gives you the chance to drink, play and get on stage with a great bunch of people. It is always an awesome evening out – whether you take part or not.

Don’t forget to BRING YOUR OWN BOOZE (coz there’s no bar). No previous experience required.

Improv Jam: Thursday 1 October 2015

This week’s jam: Crying For No Reason

This week’s improv jam is brought to you by: Parky, the letter C and the number 8Convince

A lot of the improv we do is for laughs (not all of it though – you know who you are. Honk). However, for me, getting an audience to really care about the characters on stage is as least as important as getting them to laugh. Getting a chuckle at the end of the scene is great but getting an ‘aaaah’ or tears is easily as good.

For a part of this week’s jam – only a part, mind – I want you to concentrate on playing it straight. So, you’re going to improvise some scenes but you’re going to do them as a drama, and not for laughs. The aim is to ‘yes, and’, play the scene as real as possible and avoid those silly puns and weird observances that we rely on for titters.

Then, if we have time, we’ll do daft stuff for cheap laughs. Boom.
