Gorilla Burger – Improv Comedy Carnage – TONIGHT!

NCF On Stage Action

Woo, join us for the finest improvised comedy fuckabout evening in the Midlands.  Tonight is the time for anyone to get on stage and have a go, in the comfort of an immensely supportive room, filled with wildly enthusiastic humans (mostly humans).

New to improvised comedy? No worries. We promise you’ll have a great time. We’ll match you up (randomly) with other humans and together you’ll create scenes and play games that defy reason, imagination and sometimes, comedy. It is all marvellous.

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.

It’s probably the best mash up of cleverness, silliness, drinking and theatre you’ll find.

Nottingham Comedy Festival!
Rhymes Against Humanity & Four Far Away! – Friday 10th November @ The Angel – book online here

Audition for MissImp’s Female Improv Troupe!

Auditions for MissImp’s newest performance troupe will be held on the 13th of November 2017, at 19:30 upstairs at the Angel Microbrewery, with Emily Brady (Rhymes Against Humanity).

An all-female Harold team, we will be focused on relationship-driven long-form improv. By using the Harold structure, we will explore characters, delve into relationships, and create entire universes using just our imaginations. Natural, emotional choices and commitment are the name of the game! We’re looking for supportive, bold improvisers who can fully commit to a scene (and aren’t afraid to look a bit silly doing so). Above all else, focusing on relationships and emotions will be what drives forward our scenes.Improvisers of all experience are encouraged to audition – we’re looking for a team that gels well together, not individuals with impressive CVs. Members of other MissImp troupes will be able to audition as the rehearsals will not clash. More information on the rehearsal process will be provided in the audition. The audition itself will not deal with the Harold structure directly, but if you want to read more then a solid definition can be found here: http://www.chicagonow.com/inside-chicago-improv/2013/02/what-is-a-harold/

This audition is for the core troupe, however there is scope for invited guest performers to also be involved. It is advised that auditionees wear comfortable clothing. If you are unable to make the auditions but are keen to be involved then please get in contact and we can see if anything can be sorted!

Please be aware that as this is an all-women troupe, men will not be considered at the audition, however there will be opportunity for later involvement!

Gorilla Burger – Improv Comedy Carnage – Thursday 14 September 2017

Time to Put Your Improvising Shoes On

Hurray, it’s here at last! That fantastic mid-month opportunity to cut loose and go wild. This Thursday is Gorilla Burger and we’re going to play games and scenes all night. It’s a great way to explore the local improv community, meet some folks, have some drinks and do some cool things. The focus is always on maximum fun and support.

This month the ever-charming and not-at-all-sweary Nick will be bellowing and guiding you through the show.

New to improvised comedy? No worries. We promise you’ll have a great time. We’ll match you up (randomly) with other humans and together you’ll create scenes and play games that defy reason, imagination and sometimes, comedy. It is all marvellous.

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.

Gorilla Burger – Improv Comedy Carnage – Thursday 13 July 2017

Hot Dawg!

Maybe you’ve been to one of our MANY shows recently (Millions of Voices, Smash Night, MissImp in Action…) and were wondering what else we do – well, this is a great way to find out.

Gorilla Burger is a super-relaxed get up and do it show/jam, where anyone can get on stage and take part. It helps that most of the performers will be drinking, chilling, and indulging in the supportive atmosphere of the night. Bring a mate for support / peer pressure / to buy you drinks and have a fine time.

New to improvised comedy? No worries. We promise you’ll have a great time. We’ll match you up (randomly) with other humans and together you’ll create scenes and play games that defy reason, imagination and sometimes, comedy. It is all marvellous.

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.
