COMEDYSPORTZ Our award-winning competitive comedy show for all ages! Two teams go for gold with quick-witted gags, games, sketches and songs inspired by audience suggestions. It's comedy as a sport - not about sports - with the audience helping to decide the winner! There's a referee on hand to ensure a good clean match - it's a family friendly event after all - with penalties for bad behaviour and bad jokes. Don't miss comedy's funniest fixture!

THE TOTALLY IMPROVISED MUSICAL Join us for the opening - and closing! - night of brand new comedy musicals composed before your eyes and ears using nothing but your suggestion for a title. With live musical accompaniment, our players will weave together showstopping songs and nonsensical plots that will get you laughing and your toes tapping! Fans of musicals and comedy will love this show!

THE TOTALLY IMPROVISED PANTOMIME Bored of the same old pantomimes every year? This loving pastiche of traditional pantomime tropes sees our panto players craft a brand new adventure using only your suggestions and a sprinkling of fairy dust. With both family friendly shows and adults only, this is one alternative festive treat you won't want to miss!

NEW ADELPHI COMEDY NIGHT Fast and fun adults only laughs in partnership with the University of Salford. Professional improvisers and student comedians mix it up for a night of improv, stand-up, sketch and more... Previous line-ups have included award-winning student stand-ups developing material and launching their careers. Don’t miss your opportunity to catch the top talents of tomorrow… today!
