Nothing stops the Mega-Jam! We are going to keep running our Mega-Jam online during lockdown. Places are going to be limited to 20 people (our online drop-ins are 10 people) so that it feels more like a show but you still get lots of stage time. We start with a few warm ups in break-out rooms to form the team, and then there are going to be LOADS of games, scenes and some great new show formats designed for Zoom.
Sign up on your selected date below and we will send you the zoom link about an hour before it starts. You’ll need a laptop with camera to take part (laptops work better than ipad or phone). Please only book a date if you can make it, we will be unable to transfer dates or do refunds.
Dates: Every Sunday during lockdown.
6pm – 8:30pm Sundays.
Venue: Online using Zoom.
Host: Liam Brennan.
Price: £5 (to help us keep running during lockdown).

Real-Life Jams (currently on hold)
Hoopla Jams are a cross between a workshop and a show and are open to anyone to turn up and come and perform improv on the night. You just arrive a bit before it starts, chat to the host, and sign up. Over the jam people are then selected at random and put into a variety of games and scenes. Everyone who signs up gets on stage at some point. You are also welcome to come and watch.
You just have to get there at sign up time to get warmed up and meet the team, and then can perform in a variety of games and scenes with other improvisers. This is a great place to build up performing experience and meet other people from Hoopla courses. There’s a host there to help run the evening and you can stay afterwards for free to watch the later shows and meet other improvisers.
