Improv Comedy Club


The UK’s first ever Improvised Comedy Club.


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.

We have various 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.
