Gorilla Burger – Improvised Comedy Carnage – Thursday 8 November 2018

Nottingham Comedy Festival Funtimes

This month’s Gorilla Burger is part of the Nottingham Comedy Festival, and is at The Lacehouse, rather than our usual venue.

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. Gorilla Burger at Nottingham Comedy Festival

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.

MissImp 20th Anniversary Celebration Jam – Thursday 18 October 2018

MISSIMP 20TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION JAM

Nottingham’s homegrown improvised theatre company MissImp celebrates its twentieth year with a whole weekend of comedy entertainment! Featuring five shows across two venues, ranging from full musicals to lightning fast skits, plus two free workshops, it’s sure to be a birthday like no other!

On Thursday, 18th October we’re thrilled to take over the newly reopened Malt Cross, where the original MissImp cast from 20 years ago are reuniting for one night only, followed by a showcase of our top talent, and a jam where anyone and everyone can take part!

MissImp has existed for TWENTY years! In that time we’ve come a long way, from our very first show ever, at the Malt Cross, to um… the Malt Cross! Tonight the whole of the pub is ours, and we present a celebration show featuring the original line up of MissImp (or Mission: Improbable as it was back then), followed by a titanic Gorilla Burger jam show in the bar.

This will be the perfect night to find out what the Nottingham improvised comedy scene is, and for everyone who’s ever attended a drop-in, watched a show, or appeared on stage with us. Let’s bring it all together and have a wicked night of comedy and spontaneity.

This is the celebration you’ve been looking for.

On Friday, 19th October we present a double bill of improvised comedy at the Nottingham Playhouse: at 7pm, The Vortex, our sell-out all-female team, will perform an hour-long play inspired by a single word from the audience. At 9pm, The Vox Pops take the stage, creating comedy from true stories – as told by special guest, Annie (of Annie’s Burger Shack)!

“UNIQUE PERFORMANCES THAT HAVE THE AUDIENCE IN STITCHES.” – LeftLion

Our final night on Saturday, 20th October continues the celebration, with Rhymes Against Humanity bringing an entirely improvised musical to Nottingham Playhouse at 7pm!
