Improv & Comedy

Bright Lights, Big City Impro @ Edinburgh Fringe

2017-08-26 | 15:30

What happens when a group of workers from the City of London break free from their offices and let their imaginations run wild?

You get an adrenaline-fuelled show like no other where performers conjure up characters, wise-up on wordplay and act in a way that would get them thrown out of the boardroom! Having cut their teeth at over 130 shows in London, including sell-out runs at Shoreditch, Camden and Brighton Fringe festivals, City Impro are excited to finally bring their fast-paced fully improvised comedy show “Bright Lights, Big City Impro” to Edinburgh Fringe for a strictly limited run.

Six improvisers will step out into the bright lights of Edinburgh where their showbiz agent extraordinaire will spin the Wheel of Games to decide which game, song or sketch they create next.

City Impro have been wowing the London improv scene since 2013, with members of the group coming from a wide variety of backgrounds including finance, IT and law. Playing by the simple philosophy of wanting audiences to laugh as hard as they can, previous shows having been recommended by Remote Goat (★★★★ – “A masterclass in improvised comedy”) Arts Award Voice (★★★★ - “Incredibly good”), Time Out and the London Evening Standard.
