The Grand National Impro Show, Exeter Bike Shed Theatre, Sunday 11th September, 6pm
A one-off event – never to be repeated! Professional Improvisers from all over the SouthWest are gathering together for… Whose Line is it Anyway? – knockout-style directed by Kevin Tomlinson.
Twelve improvisers start the race. Improvised scenes and games are set up by the director – Kevin Tomlinson – and the improvisers perform in these scenes. After each scene the audience awards points to the improvisers: rewarding the ones they liked best. One by one the improvisers with the lowest scores fall back, and the improvisers who are awarded the most points surge forward.
At the end of the show the improviser with the highest score is crowned the Grand National Impro Winner. Everyone cheers; the winner is fed sugar lumps and then led off to their enclosure. Cue the celebratory music and partying!
Come along and join in the fun. And try and pick the winner.
Kevin Tomlinson is one of Europe’s leading mask and improvisation performers and has been invited to perform all over the world. Kevin previously performed alongside the cast of Whose Line is it Anyway? – and Hollywood actor Jonathan Pryce – in the Royal Court Theatre show Micetro (for charity) at London’s Hackney Empire. This was directed by the legendary Keith Johnstone and Improbable’s Phelim McDermott.
Tickets cost £6.
