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 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.


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 and stand up comedy courses for you to try it yourself.
