Improv Drop-In: Thursday 20 September 2018

This week’s drop-in: Magical Realism

Brought to you by Lee.

**Please note the change of venue: we are now at the Lacehouse**

There is an old Irish joke:

tourist asks for directions to Belfast City Hall and the local says, “Well, I wouldn’t start from here”.

As improvisers we often have a great idea for a scene and want to get there as soon as possible, or we have nothing and need to build a reality to explore. Through exercises, scene work and some pretty unwieldy metaphors, Lee is going to take us through establishing the base reality of the scene, checking what we have established, and then exploring that base reality to find our character’s emotional grounding and the humour in our scenes.

Gorilla Burger – Improvised Comedy Carnage – Thursday 13 September 2018

It’s New Every Single Time

Celebrate this Thursday by trying something new! Gorilla Burger is our get up and try it night, where you (yes, you!) can be part of the show! Whether you’re an old hand or never done it before, this is the finest opportunity to play on stage with a wide range of brilliant people. 

How does it work? So glad you asked… if you fancy having a go, we’ll pop your name in a hat with some other fabulous folk. When we draw your name it will be time to shine! We’ll pop you in a game or a scene with some of those aforementioned fabulous folk, and comedy will ensue, honest!

New to improvised comedy? No worries. We promise you’ll have a great time. Of course, you don’t have to perform! You can remain happily anonymous in the audience, settle back with a pint, and enjoy the show.

This month your master of ceremonies will be Nick.

September is our MIND charity month, and on top of two of our mob raising money by running the Robin Hood half-marathon, we’re also donating a chunk of all the change we make! Make a difference: improvise.

September is MissImp’s Mind Month!

Make a difference: improvise.

This month, two of MissImp’s heroic improvisers, Duncan and Elliott, are running the Robin Hood half-marathon to raise money for Mind – the Mental Health Charity. It’s a charity close to many of our hearts (and minds, obviously), so we’re delighted to support them as they run/walk/crawl. Even better, we’ll be donating a percentage of all our profits to them at the end of the month – you can make a difference just by showing up to one of our events!

September Stuff

Brave men.

Wanna support tha boyz directly? Ace: here’s their JustGiving page.

Wanna make a random donation? Give it straight to us at a MissImp event and we’ll wrap it up in the overall donation.

Make a difference: improvise.

Improv Drop-In: Thursday 6 September 2018

This week’s drop-in: Super Sharp Shooter*

Brought to you by Nick.

**Please note the change of venue: we are now at the Lacehouse**

OK, probably not shootsing peeps, but tonight we’re aiming for fast and splendid. Building on the delightful speed carnage of 60 second scenes we’re gonna attack montages with the same ferocity, going for quick and brutal edits, packing the maximum stuff into tight and tidy ten minute montages. FUN!
