The Uk’s First Improvised Comedy Club

Improv Comedy Club


The UK’s first ever Improvised Comedy Club.


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.


“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.


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


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.


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