Science and Soliloquies: This Week at The London Improv Comedy Club

Oh, there you are! Running about in the sun with such gay abandon, cherryade stains down your dungarees and lipstick smears across your cheek from when you 'experimented' with mum's make-up.

Keep having fun, won't you? Keep up the larking.

Just, when it gets a bit chilly, pop yourself indoors for some heartwarming improv and joyful comedy. Go on, it's warm. Like adding brandy to your ribena or smoking a cigar in a wendy house.

... kids.

Tuesday 17th April
Hey Arthur, what are you doing? Well it looks like you're playing some fun games and doing scenes a bit like what they used to do on Whose Line Is It Anyway?.. Carry on. Be careful. Don't go too fast near the pool.

Ooh, Arthur's my youngest improv-boy, but he has SUCH an imagination. And, gosh, he's funny.

Speaking of improv-boys, just behind Arthur you can see my oldest.. Steve... Steve Roe's been teaching impro for about 7 years and running the Hoopla impro school. He's about to do his first solo show which'll feature stand-up, juggling and all sorts of other things. And he can ride a bike. He's such a clever boy.
Tuesday 17th April
Time: Doors 7:45pm, Show 8pm - 10pm with interval.
Cost: £5 on the door.

Wednesday 18th April
Sara is one of mine too. Ooh, she's funny an' all. And she's written a musical about her own life. It's a preview for her acclaimed solo show at the Edinburgh Fringe festival this year. ‘Sara Pascoe: The Musical’ is the tale of a lady who lived from the 1980's to 2012. It's a great story with some catchy tunes and many morals. Sara's life features many TV appearances including Stand Up For The Week, Campus & Free Agents (C4); The Thick of It & Twenty Twelve (BBC).

Sara Pascoe will be supported by the local gang of impro-hoodies. The London Improv All-Stars are the best of the best improvisers on the estate. They may be tearing up the neighbourhood on scooters and BMXs but they mean you no harm... they just want to play.
Wednesday 18th April
Time: Doors 7:45pm, Show 8pm - 10pm with interval.
Cost: £5 on the door.

Silly String Theory is a ground-breaking improvised play that picks strands from our lives and explores how we meet, part, love and live together.

Silly String Theory returns by invite to the Canal Cafe Theatre, after the first series last December. Devised and directed by Katy Schutte ("...could easily hold [her] own with the likes of Merton, Frost and Jupitus" - Chortle) it features songs and real life monologues, learning what it means to be human and interact with others.
