Gorilla Burger & MissImp Annual Awards – Thursday 8 December 2016


The Annual MissImp Christmas Awards and Party 2016

Thursday 8th December 2016

gorilla-burger-xmas

Games, scenes, food, drink, awards and prizes – all under the watchful eye of your host Parky.

Get up on stage, matched up with our selection of other performers and see what wonders will emerge. This is improvised comedy theatre and together we’ll be brilliant.

All you have to do is stick your name in the hat – the receptacle of randomness – you’ll be drawn, partnered and slung on stage. Your choice of game or scene will guide you in an episode of spontaneous theatre.

Of course, you don’t have to give us your name. You can remain happily anonymous in the audience, settle back with a pint and enjoy the show.

This month, we also have our 5th Annual MissImp Awards. Everyone present will receive an award – all nominated by fellow MissImpers – and you’ll also get a prize from Parky’s Table of Joy.

We’ll also have our annual vote for which two people you think deserve our very special MissImp Outstanding Contribution awards (no one who has previously won can get it again!)

While we’ll also put on some party food and snacks, and the bar upstairs is loaded with amazing boozoids.

It’s a Double Show Week! Gorilla Burger and Consenting Partners!

Double Trouble, Two’s Company and other cliches don’t really describe the joy this week brings. First up – the regular random chaotic genius that is Gorilla Burger, followed on Saturday by the fractionally more refined and theatrical Consenting Partners. Both are awesome, which one will win? There’s only one way to find out…

Gorilla Burger: Show Off or Watch the Show

Get up on stage, get matched with a selection of other performers and get it on (theatrically! Honestly, it’s not really that kind of show). This is improvised comedy theatre and together we’ll be brilliant.

All you have to do is stick your name in the hat – the receptacle of randomness – and you’ll be drawn, partnered and slung on stage. Your choice of game or scene will guide you in an episode of spontaneous theatre.

Of course, you don’t have to give us your name. 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.

*Don’t forget that this month we’re in the salubrious surroundings supplied by the Ned Ludd’s upstairs space.

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.

This month, we also have our 4th Annual MissImp Awards. Everyone present will receive an award – all nominated by fellow MissImpers – and you’ll also get a prize from Parky’s Table of Joy.

We’ll also have our annual vote for which two people you think deserve our very special MissImp Outstanding Contribution awards.

While we’ll also put on some party food and snacks, don’t forget to BRING YOUR OWN BOOZE (coz there’s no bar). No previous experience required.

Gorilla Burger – Improv Comedy Carnage – Thursday 9 April 2015

Do it do it do it Do It.

Thursday 9th AprilGorilla Burger2015

The unique improv comedy karaoke night we’ve all been looking for.

Gorilla Burger is a live improvised comedy jamming show for anyone and everyone – all you have to do is put your name in the hat, get it magically drawn forth and find yourself on stage doing something awesome and funny.

This month we give you the Face of Geoff as host, a Hat of Names, a performance by the graduates of our most recent L2 improv course and so much more.

There will also be lots of opportunity to get on stage with plenty of drinking and a great bunch of people. It is always an awesome evening out – whether you take part or not.

This is an excellent opportunity to shake your improv booty or just meet some folks and get a feel for what we do here in MissImp – this is live, unscripted comedy theatre.

You should BRING YOUR OWN BOOZE (coz there’s no bar). It’s also a good idea to bring a jumper/coat/sleeping bag (it is February, you know).

Anyone can play. Put your name in the hat and come up and do a scene (or a shortform game from the other hat if you like). We’ll pick names out of the hat and performers will get to try out playing with new people – or even playing for the very first time.

No previous experience required.

Mad March Haring About

Thursday 12th MarchGorilla Burger2015

Emerge! Emerge from your wintry dwelling and join us for an evening of on-stage fun.

Gorilla Burger is a live jamming show for anyone and everyone – all you have to do is put your name in the hat, get it magically drawn forth and find yourself on stage doing something awesome and funny.

We give you an evening of spontaneous entertainment including a finale by Tam O’ Shanter* (Parky, Eddie, Jamie, Lloydie and possibly Mark, hailing from Britain’s cesspool: London).

There will also be lots of opportunity to get on stage with plenty of drinking and a great bunch of people. It is always an awesome evening out – whether you take part or not.

And, there may even be a short MissImp improv set for you to enjoy.
