The Hoopla Improv Marathon

This is an annual event at Hoopla and it is EPIC!!!!

Once a year in September we run shows NON-STOP back to back from 7pm Friday until midnight Saturday. Shows run through the night, through the small hours of the morning, through the daytime and then finish with one big party!

Many of the improvisers and audience stay for the whole lot without sleep!

There are big headline shows, small shows, open to everyone jams and lots and lots of crazy mini late night shows happening throughout the weekend.

The mini-shows late at night are a sight to behold! It’s where the weirdest and most exciting ideas in improv get to happen on stage for one night only, and it makes a once in a lifetime experience for the audience.

Previous one-off shows have included improvised shadow puppet theatre, an improvised ARNIE movie where every actor is played by Arnold Schwarzanegger, Spring Watch Live, Hot Morris the sexy improvised morris dancing show, RAVE with improv set in an early 90s rave, Nicholas Cage inspired improv, hip hop musicals, MEGA FACE, late night whale music, pie face and more.

Over 200 performers and over 50 shows are usually involved over the weekend.

Back as a smaller scale event this September 2021!

The Hoopla Improv Marathon is back in September 2021. It is now on a much smaller scale than normal, running for a shorter amount of time and with reduced audience capacity and other covid precautions, but still lots of fun!

Due to the reduced audience capacity we recommend booking ahead!
