This week at The London Improv Comedy Club

Wotcha! Improv follows:

Tuesday 31st May
Ooh, look at Long-form, look how it flourishes this week. Tuesday at The Miller sees the arrival of a fresh new group with a fresh new approach. Indoor Fireworks' debut show is about to go off. Light them with audience suggestions and stand well back for the glittery magic to happen.
Featuring: Geoff Marshall, Neil Goulder, Vicki Pipe, Clive Moore, Nick Oram, Dan Attfield, Rhys Collier, Holly Prescott and Luke Beahan.

Then, after a Miller hiatus, the incredible Music Box return from their tour of the festivals with a 5-star review and some earwigs under their belt. Music Box are gearing up for a very busy summer and a full Edinburgh Fringe run, so catch them now while you still can.
"Music Box stand out for their ambition, their variety, their creativity... and the fact they actually can sing... this is the purest style of improv" ***** - FringeGuru

Wednesday 1st June
8bit kick it all off as seven improvisers grab one single word from the audience and weave it into a whole world of tales and characters. Inspired by Chicago improv with a twist of London Lemon, it's like pouring Budweiser into a tea-cup.
"The best British Harold I've seen… very slick… very focused…"

8bit are coached by one-half of this:
... so it gives us great pleasure to welcome the Katy and Rach show to the London Improv stage. Katy Schutte (The Maydays, Music Box, 8bit coach) is joined by Alexis Gallagher as he steps into Rach's shoes for one show only. Alexis (Upright Citizens Brigade, Burn Manhattan) normally directs Katy And Rach, so this show is going to be extra-specially ace.
"...combine[s] the humour and spontaneity of improvised theatre with the emotional complexity of a modern play." - The Argus

"...the laughs came thick and fast, the audience swept along with Katy and Rach..." ***** - Remote Goat

It's like KatySchutteFest '11, which is fine by us.

Tuesday and Wednesday at The Miller, 96 Snowsfields Road, London Bridge, London, SE1 3SS.
Time: Doors 7:30pm, Show 8pm - 10pm with interval.
Cost: £5 on the door.

A special mention for next week: Wednesday 8th June
London Improv presents: We Are The New Them, Live

For the Pentecost Festival this year, two brilliant groups - Music Box and 8bit - introduce impro to a whole new environment. In a proper theatre with seats and lights and everything. It's going to be pretty down-right marvellous, like having a laugh with your mates but every single one of those mates has trained for years to make themselves even funnier.

And with Christian Aid on board too you might even learn something about the world around you.

Or you might not. You might just laugh a lot.
That’s a risk you’ll have to take.

Also, there may.. MAY.. be biscuits.

Book tickets here, before they run out:
