What is 'The TBC Improv Theatre' Anyway?
Since its inception in 2009, To Be Continued… has worked tirelessly to create a home for improv in Scotland: an epicenter for those wishing to watch, perform and/or learn this exciting art form. After performing at various venues throughout the country, and watching countless more other improv groups perfroming at other venues, the time is right to focus all that talent to one location; to create a venue where people know to go for improv comedy. This venue is The TBC Improv Theatre.
Run by To Be Continued…, the TBC Improv Theatre provides a home not just to our group but to the numerous other groups performing throughout Scotland. In addition, this venue provides a perfect location for visiting improvisers to perform. This improv theatre will truly be a home for improv comedy in Scotland.
And for those wanting to catch some improv action - either to get that much needed improvised comedy fix or to find out what all this "making stuff up as you perform" is all about - this is the go-to place. With a focused space for improv comedy, reaching audiences for shows and workshops will become much simpler: followers of one group will know where to go to discover even more improv goodness. It's worked in London. It's thriving in New York, Chicago, Toronto and more. We're determined to make it work in Edinburgh!
