Have some fun playing a mix of games, scenes and show formats specifically designed for zoom!

These online drop-ins are open to everyone, all levels welcome, but if you are totally new to improv you may want to start with one of our online taster days first.

As always we will create a safe, fun, friendly and supportive environment where improvisers are free to play and be themselves.

Each session will start with a chat to build the right environment, a quick guide on how to use Zoom for improv, then some fun warm ups and core skills before doing LOADS and LOADS of games, scenes and show formats for fun!

We’ve also now added some themed specials around topics like Characters, Story, Scenework and more.

Most of all the focus will be on improvising in a fun and carefree way, getting lots of practice in, and having a massive laugh!
