New Year. New Start.

Hello 2021! Whilst it may yet be some time before we return to live shows we’re still continuing to keep you entertained with our online shows and workshops.

Don’t miss our New Year, New Games match tonight from 7pm GMT. We have online shows every Wednesday and Saturday – subscribe to our YouTube channel today to never miss a match!

Want to try something new for 2021? Sign up to our January courses in Improv and Stand-Up Comedy. A great way to make connections, build confidence and develop communication skills. Courses are fun, friendly and a great way to learn how to play!

The 100 Black Improvisers Partnership is a joint venture among corporate sponsors, improv teachers, and improv schools/theaters around the world which are actively seeking diversity. By pledging to provide a minimum of five scholarships for Black students, each of us contributes to a common goal of getting 100 more Black people into Foundation Improv level workshops by July 2021.

We have pledged to provide five spaces on our next foundation improv course. You can sign up to this scheme by emailing us or via the Black Improv Alliance website.

If you have questions about any of our shows, workshops or getting us involved in a local project then don’t hesitate to get in touch.

SHOWS UPDATE

Well, we think it’s safe to say any of our remaining plans for live shows in 2020 haven’t exactly gone as we’d hoped. We’re rescheduling our dates at Lock 91 and our show at Chorley Theatre for a tentative January 2021 – we’ll have confirmation on those in time for our next newsletter. Waterside Arts, our regular venue, is remaining closed until April 2021 but we will be back!
online comedy shows
So what does that mean for the rest of the year? We’ll be continuing online with weekly shows (ComedySportz: Wednesdays and Saturdays 7pm GMT) and online improv Drop-Ins will return from 7th November. We’re also planning more festive fun and special shows for all ages this winter. Be sure to follow our social media for regular updates!
Thanks to everyone who booked tickets for our return to live shows. You will either have received a refund already or may be offered the opportunity to transfer tickets to our new dates when they’re confirmed for next year.
Drops-In Improv workshops every Saturday
Thank you for your continued support this year. It’s been a difficult one for all of us and we’re immensely grateful for your support. We’ll still be here to keep you entertained throughout this second lockdown and beyond with more all action, all improvised competitive comedy for all ages!
