This Week at the London Improv Comedy Theatre

Tuesday 14th June
Oh yes, good news, Music Box have another gig. We went without them for ages in May, but they're back at The Miller with their kick-ass brilliant Improvised Musical. Music Box really are propelling into the summer season with shows every Friday at London Zoo, regular shows at The Miller, and loads more besides. Catch them before they sell-out to ITV2.

"So funny I spat my wine across five rows of people and right up onto the stage. I would recommend this to everyone."
- Clara Jackson, Producer at ESPN

Then we have the extraspecially pleasant Bec Hill, with an extraspecially pleasant preview of her Edinburgh Show. Bec wins amazing reviews every time she plays, so this really will be a treat. We know she's funny just from that photo there.

"Bec Hill and her side-splittingly funny stand-up routine are a joy to behold."

"A superb show which leaves one feeling warm and hopeful for hours afterwards. A must see."
★★★★★ - ThreeWeeks
