Improv Drop-In Every Thursday*

Fancy getting involved? Come along to one of our fun, welcoming, drop-in sessions.

The drop-in sessions are perfect for absolute beginners who’ve never been on stage! You don’t need any experience in comedy, improv, acting, etc and you don’t have to be “funny” or “witty” or “clever”. As long as you’re willing to throw yourself in and have some fun, this is the perfect place for you!

A silly old good time!

You’ll get to do loads of improv scenes and games within a loose workshop structure, combining skills development with all sorts of fun and games. The sessions are led by experienced MissImp performers and teachers in a fun, supportive, and welcoming atmosphere. They focus on different aspects of improv but are mainly about learning, having fun, and doing some great scenes together.

Whether you’re new to improv and you simply want to have fun or a hardened improv veteran, we can’t wait to see you at the next session!

*On the second Thursday of each month the drop-in transforms into Gorilla Burger – a show open to the public. Everyone can get on stage and perform – although you’re also welcome to come along, watch and cheer. Buy your drinks upstairs and bring them down.

Every Thursday
7.30 – 9.30pm | £5 / 3 concessions
The Malt Cross (downstairs in the workshop)
16 St James’s St | Nottingham | NG1 6FG

Please let us know if you’re coming along for the first time, or if you have any questions at all send us a message. Also, do read the MissImp ground rules before coming along.

Improv Drop-In: Thursday 15 November 2018 - This week’s drop-in: Hostage to Fortune Brought to you by Richard. The idea behind this week’s drop-in comes from a time when I was trying to do a walk on in The Vox Pops, and Ben stuck me in a chair and started cutting my hair… I just sat there panicked and people wet themselves…
Gorilla Burger at Nottingham Comedy Festival 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.

Improv Drop-In: Thursday 1 November 2018 - This week’s drop-in: Practical Telepathy Brought to you by Lee. The best film, TV, and improv scenes are filled with subtlety and nuance. Unfortunately as improvisers we don’t have the luxury of reading the script beforehand to know what the other performer is communicating! This week we’ll be working on subtlety in improv, why we…
Improv Drop-In: Thursday 25 October 2018 - This week’s drop-in: Character Charisma Brought to you by Elliott. **Please note the change of venue: we are back at the Malt Cross!** A great actor can play anyone in any situation, but you don’t often see people queuing round the block to see them. We’re usually drawn instead to those stars who drip with…
