If you've never seen improvised comedy before, you are in for a right treat. All the games, scenarios, and situations are formed from your suggestions ... that's right YOU, the audience. 

"5 STARS! The comedy is creative and crude, quick and quirky, the performers commit completely to the games and create funny and fantastic characters at a moment's notice." - Remotegoat

"There's a wonderful slapstick nature to it all but they are all impressively literate in film culture and genres too, creating brilliant, quick draw pastiches of popular cinema that will have you in stitches." - Manchester's Finest

"Total fun and instantly engaging." - whodaresgrins.com

The MC for both nights, as always, is the very funny Chris Lumb.

With more strings to his comedy bow than a funny Robin hood, he's a comedy director having award winning films played at festivals such as Raindance. 

Also a keen impressionist Chris also appeared on Russell Howard's Good News.

 

Friday 28 June:

Opening the show we have top impressionist and Internet sensation Charlie Hopkinson.

Charlie has over 100k YouTube followers and some of his videos have had over 12 million hits. From The Peaky Blinders to Breaking Bad... from Robin Williams to Gandalf the Wizard... there aren't many voices he cannot do! Charlie also recently narrated the Channel 4 sitcom Lookalikes as the voice of Morgan Freeman and even made a cameo in the show.

Also a talented stand up comedian, Charlie is really taking the scene by storm, landing places in various comedy competition finals and winning a number of fantastic awards. 

Charlie finished third in the Yorkshire Fringe New Act of The Year, third in the Nationwide Hilarity Bites New Act Competition, reached the final of the Leicester Square New Act of the Year and was winner of the 2018 Southport Comedian of the Year Award. He is the current holder of the Harrogate Comedian of the Year Award.

Plus, stand up sets from Daniel Nicholas.

“A sharp, obtuse wit ...Someone as inventive as this should have a future in comedy.” - Steve Bennett, Chortle.
