Improv 201 Showcase by The Artsy Apples

Looking for an excuse to let loose and enjoy some much-needed laughter? We have the perfect suggestion for you – the upcoming comedy showcase by the graduating class of The Improv Company’s Improv 201 course!

On the 17th of February, for one night only at the Aliwal Arts Centre, watch as these newcomers transform even the most random audience suggestions into clever, hilarious skits crafted entirely in the moment.

If you’ve never experienced the magic of improv before, it’s a unique form of theatre with no scripts or planning whatsoever. The performers spontaneously improvise entire stories on the spot based on prompts shouted out by the audience. These prompts can be witty, crude, weird, or even boring to truly challenge the performers’ creativity.

This means that no two shows are ever the same, allowing both the quick-thinking comedians and the audience to actively collaborate in crafting the comedy as it unfolds. It’s a wildly entertaining night of watching them conjure characters and scenarios out of thin air! This rare form of art, where audience participation makes up 50% of the show, guarantees a hilarious time as you hear these wacky scenarios thrown into the air and turned even wilder!

A little background on The Improv Company: Founded in 2013, they are Singapore’s first improv school and theatre. Over the years, they’ve produced hundreds of shows, imparting their “Yes, And” philosophy to foster creativity and agreement among their students.

Their talented coaches have nurtured many independent troupes over the years, while also representing Singapore on the world stage at numerous international comedy festivals. They even host the biennial Singapore Improv Festival, which has been going strong since 2016!

Now, you can support their latest batch of rising improv talents as they apply their spontaneity, imagination, and wit to entertain you on the fly. With audience suggestions that can range from the mundane to the downright absurd, this showcase promises a night of belly laughs, gasps of amazement, and nonstop good vibes.

So, gather your friends for a night out and get ready to bust a gut laughing! With The Improv Company delivering playful, good-natured comedy, it’s sure to be one of the most hilarious and entertaining shows in town.
