First Sunday of the Month: The Improv Living-Room and Invited Improv Double-Bill

The First Sunday of the Month (05 February 2017) - The TBC Improv Theatre @ Monkey Barrel Comedy

Okay, may seem a bit odd to have "the first Sunday of the month" mentioned last, but as quite a few people were … "recovering" on 1 January, we decided to start this on in February ;)

The TBC Improv Players make their Edinburgh return in February with The Improv Living-Room. Catch the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Sell-out group as they chat and perform scenes about life, science, the universe, pop-culture, or anything and everything that inspires them in the moment; all this created on the spot and inspired by a single word suggestion!

Followed at 8:45pm by Invited Improv Double-Bill, the first Sunday of the month is looking pretty great, even if we do say so ourselves ;).

The Cutting Room | Sunday 05 February 2017 | 7:30pm - 8:30pm | Free (Pay What You Decide) | The TBC Improv Theatre @ Monkey Barrel Comedy, Edinburgh (Details)
