The Uk’s First Improv comedy club

Hoopla Improv Comedy Club

The UK’s first ever Improv 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.


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.

8pm. THURSDAY 22nd FEBRUARY 2018: NEWSICAL, MAD MONKEY, SHAKES PAIR


Newsical: Improvised music inspired by newspaper clippings. Fast and funny mix of music, improv and satire.


Mad Monkey: With no rehearsal and no script, the Mad Monkey Improvisers have to rely on their imaginations and wit to transform audience suggestions into hilariously funny scenes in the blink of an eye. A unique and completely different show every time!


Shakes pair: What happens when you cross blank verse with a blank page and two very blank minds? The "Shakespair" bring you a two-handed show of Improvised revelry. We give you our comedic homage to the bard. Yay, yay and thrice yay! "All the worlds a stage and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances, and one man in his time plays many parts"... and two men can play many more and make some stuff up from audience suggestions too!
