The comedy-dense monthly improv show hits the Room Above. Four of the best improvisational comedy groups finally come together to show off their comedy chops!
First up, The Room Above's all-star shortform squad brings the fast-paced short-form improv to the night. Think the best bits, games, and challenges you've seen from your favourite talk shows. A series of improvised scenes expertly performed by the squad and each scene inspired by a slew of audience suggestions. This is the perfect introduction to improv for the uninitiated - a guaranteed laugh.
Post intermission, a selection of 3 of the burgeoning scene's best sketch-based improv groups will bring their A-game for your viewing pleasure. Each group will develop an audience suggestion into a whole mini show tailored to you - all of this within a fast-paced, gong inducing, hilarious hour of comedy.
Each and every show is completely different - and always created in the moment. But don't worry - they know what their doing.
In their original “epilogue” format, Birdwatchers explore the present and past of 2 characters reminiscing together. The exploratory flashbacks combine comedic elements, heartfelt scenes, and absolutely ridiculous moments that are sure to make you laugh and think that maybe your own family isn’t that weird after all.
Since forming in 2019, Jazz Police have performed improv comedy all over the UK, including at the Edinburgh International Improv Festival and the Birmingham Comedy Festival. Prepare to dive headfirst into a world of side-splitting scenes and comedic bits, as an entire show is effortlessly crafted from a single word.
