Hoopla!

Hoopla Impro Newsletter


A variety of advanced improv courses including Advanced Long-Form Formats, Improvised Musicals, Story, Improvised Plays, Narrative Long-Form, Harolds, Solo Improv, Sketch Comedy, Improvising on Film, YouTube, Producing, Directing, Improvised Poetry, Two Prov and Genres.


We’re going to be using our Advanced Improv Courses to introduce improvisers to the full variety of improv styles available, and hopefully inspire future developments in the wider improv scene.


All of our advanced improv courses also have an end of course show at our Improv Comedy Club, where you perform together as a group.


These courses are designed for people with previous experience of performing improv. If you don’t have previous improv experience it’s best to start with our other improv courses first.
