  • So That Happened – Improv Comedy (24 May)

    🎭 An Evening of Laughter and Stories! 🌟

    Join us for a rollercoaster ride of laughter and spontaneity at “So That Happened,” the improv comedy show where true life meets unscripted hilarity!

    🤣 What’s It All About? Our talented troupe of improvisers doesn’t just think on their feet — they draw from their own lives! Each show kicks off with our performers sharing real, often ridiculous, personal anecdotes. From the heart-warming to the utterly absurd, these true stories are the springboard for a night of wild, off-the-cuff comedy.

    🎭 Expect the Unexpected No script? No problem! Watch in amazement as these stories inspire a series of spontaneous scenes, creating an ever-changing tapestry of humour that’s as unpredictable as life itself. Every show is a unique experience, sculpted by the strange, funny, and sometimes unbelievable twists of our own lives.

    🌟 Why You Can’t Miss It

    • Hilarious & Heartfelt: Enjoy a night where laughter flows as freely as the stories that inspire it.
    • Unique Blend of Comedy and Storytelling: Witness a seamless fusion of stand-up storytelling and improv comedy, where personal tales transform into wildly entertaining scenes.
    • Unscripted Brilliance: Be amazed by the quick wit and creative genius of our performers, as they craft uproarious comedy on the spot — no two shows are ever the same!

About our shows

Impulse Theatre produces a variety of fun and exciting shows. We love to challenge people’s ideas of what improvisation can be, and there’s something for everyone.

Improv can stray into “adult” content sometimes, but we’re good at reining that in when there are younger members in the audience. If in any doubt, please get in touch, or just let us know before the show.

Recent shows

Some of our favourites

  • Flatmates is our hilarious improvised sitcom, and has proven to be a real crowd pleaser. The story revolves around the amusing interactions and chaotic situations that arise among the diverse group of flatmates.
  • Strangers is one of our more dramatic (but often still funny) shows. It feels like watching a really good play. So much so, that we’ve had audience ask us after the show, “Who wrote it?”
  • Peregrine V is a full-length improvised sci-fi. It’s loads of crazy sci-fi fun, where the performers don’t know who, or even what, they will be playing until the show starts.
  • Red v Blue is classic quick-witted comedy improvisation.
  • Off Book is a full, improvised musical, that follows a continuous story for the length of the show (just like real musicals).
  • Living Art is one of our newest shows. It takes inspiration from the work of a local artist, who presents some of their art and we improvise! You’ll see scenes, stories, songs, poems, and more — plus some amazing art!
