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

Hoopla’s Improv Comedy Club was recently recommended as the best place to see improvised comedy in London by both The Daily Telegraph AND The Londonist.

“If improvisation floats your boat you should head to Hoopla. There’s fewer better ways to see what spur-of-the-moment comedy London has to offer.” - The Londonist.

We have various styles of improv each night including short-form games, scenes, long-form, and improv musicals. After the main shows listed below we also host additional informal late night shows.
