Improv megastars: This Week at The London Improv Comedy Club

Things are hotting up, aren't they?: The weather, the world of improv,.. these thermo-pants.

If you like that sort of thing (pants included), you'll be pretty excited about the forthcoming week. We've got epic adventures and international superstars popping on down to our stage at The Miller.
That's pretty hot.

If you don't like that sort of thing, we'll make sure we switch the air-conditioning on.

Tuesday 10th April
Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. We forgive him. He's a good enough chap, and everyone makes mistakes. We're not sure about his girlfriend though, she sells sea shells on the seashore. To our mind, that's a terrible place to sell them when anyone can find them just metres away.
Ha! Tongue-twister fun.
Red Lorry Yellow Lorry is a new improvised musical. Join them for their debut show, and bring your junk mail along as they'll be creating a musical story from it.

And they'll be followed by the delightful Imagine If You Will who'll improvise a fantastic adventure of magic and jazz. And other things.
Tuesday 10th April
Time: Doors 7:45pm, Show 8pm - 10pm with interval.
Cost: £5 on the door.

Wednesday 11th April

with CRUMBS!
Ask a lot of prominent improvisers what their favourite improv group is and you'll frequently get the immediate reply: "Crumbs!". For proof, check this article.

Crumbs are Stephen Sim and Lee White, and they've been improvising together since the early 1990's. They're known for their cinematic storytelling, their absurd characters and their laid back, lo-fi style of performance.
People also think they're funny.

We are massively excited to have them. Like... ridiculously. It's the equivalent of Frank Oz and Jim Henson doing a Punch & Judy show at the Tooting Bec Lido.

They will be supported by Musical Comedy offerings from duo:
Horse And Louis, and stand-up from Gary Tro ("a great line in anecdotal, narrative based stand up" ***** What's On Stage).
Wednesday 11th April
Time: Doors 7:45pm, Show 8pm - 10pm with interval.
Cost: £5 on the door.
Where: The Miller, 96 Snowsfields Road, London, SE1 3SS.

Ooh, also, we thought we'd let you know that tickets for this year's London 50-hour Improvathon have just gone on sale. A 50-hour non-stop improvised comedy set in Ancient Greece during the 2012 BC games.
The cast includes some of the finest improvisers from around the world: Canada, Australia, India, Norway and Holland are all represented as well as the cream of the UK crop!
And London Improv's very own Jonathan Monkhouse will be lighting improviser for the whole thing (gulp).
Friday 11th May - Sunday 13th May
Time: Episodes start on every odd hour throughout the weekend (7pm, 9pm, 11pm, 1am, etc). Each episode lasts 1 hour 40 minutes.
Our special family episode is at 11am on Sunday 13th May.
Cost: 50hr pass is £50 (£40 early bird*),
an episode pass costs £12.50 (£10 early bird* & concession).
You can also upgrade your episode pass for only £5 to see another episode.
Where: Hoxton Hall, 130 Hoxton Street, Shoreditch, London N1 6SH.


So grease up those surfboards, get your bikinis on, and get yourself to the warmest, friendliest form of comedy there is. (It's improv, by the way).
