This Week at The London Improv Comedy Club

If improvised entertainment was a mammal it would be a leviathan. A leviathan with a lovely cake, just for you. Singing.

Monday 16th May
Throw your hands in the air as Marbles presents their bi-monthly hip-hop comedy jam session/impro love-in. Jazz trio Furniture lay the foundation; Marbles, Rob Broderick (Abandoman) and Jurassic 4 (Max&Ivan, and Jon Gracey (Beta Males) blow your headphones with their ill microphone technique. Word.

“Like watching a younger and better looking Baddiel and Skinner; though more talented
and less smug.”
Beat, Rhymes and Mirth, £7, 8pm, at The Wilmington Arms

Tuesday 17th May
A couple of awesome gigs on Tuesday that are well worth mentioning. Lucky you.

Firstly, Music Box are performing their second show for the Brighton Fringe. Their first one on opening night earned a 5-star review from Fringe Guru, so check them out.

"Music Box stand out for their ambition, their variety, their creativity... and the fact they actually can sing." - FringeGuru

Upstairs at The Three and Ten, 17 May, 10:00pm-10:50pm.

Tuesdays at The Miller keep the comedy-momentum set to "fast" with Fun Stuff. Fun Stuff have but one aim - to give the audience a good time. Steve Roe of Hoopla! hand-picks a different cast of improvisers each show, and presents lots of fast and fun improvised games with ‘Whose Line is it Anyway?’ and ‘Fast and Loose’ favourites.

Cast this week includes Ben Hamblin, Duncan Pearce, Luisa Omeilan and Steve Violich
... with Steve Roe directing.

They are followed by Stewart McCure's Star Cast. Stewart McCure (Scenes from Communal Living), Rob Broderick (Abandoman, Hackney Empire New Act of the Year 2010), Rachel Parris (The Oxford Imps) and Tanya Bulmer create scenes and stories with your laugh-enjoyment in mind.
£5, Tuesday 8pm, The Miller, near London Bridge.

Wednesday 18th May
Shotgun attack the block with fast-paced comedy improvisation, with no rehearsal, no preparation and no script. They take audience suggestions and ideas, and reveal their underlying magnificence. They really are very good. Yes indeed.
£5, Wednesday 8pm, The Miller, near London Bridge.

Thursday 19th May
London Improv regulars Music Box will be joined on stage at The Old Vic Tunnels. They'll be with members of The Maydays, Showstoppers, Marbles and Friendly Fire... indeed just about everybody who improvises with music, for an impro music spectacular.
