Hoopla present a selection of the best improvised comedy in London every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday night. At least two different improv groups each night from the UK’s flourishing live impro scene.

Recommended by Time Out, The Evening Standard, The Metro and The Daily Telegraph.

We support all styles of improv and have a variety of styles of improv each night including short-form games, scenes, long-form, improvised plays, improvised films and improv musicals, as well as occasional late night jams, shows and parties.

We also run improv courses for you to try improv yourself as well as stand up comedy courses and corporate training.
