Improvised Comedy Night

Weds, 30th August – 7:30pm – Smash Night – The Angel

WARNING: This night has the potential to descend into total chaos…. Smash night is a monthly event where local improv teams get together and experiment. Watch as the various performers take audience suggestions and turn them into dramatic and hilarious scenes and stories. What you will witness will never have been seen before and will never be seen again – it’s all made up on the spot!

With tickets costing only £5, this is a great way to get a taste of what improvised comedy is about.
