Thursday Night Lights is open-for-all improv jam, workshop and show… all rolled into an awesome way to spend your Thursday!
If you’ve never been to an improv jam night before and don’t know what to expect; it’s like an open mic for bands, poets or stand-ups but for improvisers, and it’s FREE ENTRY.
Just arrive in time at the Venue (schedule and details below) to sign-up with the host and you’ll be joining in the action onstage in a safe, supportive and curated night of entirely improvised comedy. All the jammers get to warm up together in a short workshop after sign-up, which will help bring out the best in everyone before the show as well as help you to connect with your fellow players.
Each Jam section has its own distinct feel, plus you get to watch a couple of acts from across the circuit who might even join you in the jam!
Each week we host a monthly resident improv group as well as a guest team or act, (through application here) teams often join in the jam, so you’ll not only get to watch some of the best up-and-coming improv comedians but also perform alongside them
So, if you’re brand new to improv, or you’re a pro and looking to get in some ‘reps’ onstage there’s something for everyone.
Three Types of Jam
Fun comedy games that the host will explain and curate.
A series of longer comedic or dramatic scenes, more character focussed than usual with a focus on our house style of ‘emotional connection and freeform silliness’ giving much more free rein for performers to stretch their improv legs.
The Mystery Jam ©™!
A stylised series of scenes where each week the host invents a new concept never-to-be-seen again that will flex improv muscles you didn’t know you had.
Order of the night
7:30pm – Arrival and sign-up for Jam
We get an idea of who you are and which of the jams you would like to try.
7:40pm – Collective warm up
This is a big part of the night. If you’d like to play, come and warm up together.
8:00pm – The Show
Different every week, in format, content and tone. You’re very welcome to show up at this time if you’d like to just watch rather than play.
10:00pm – End of the night
End of the night AKA drinks and chats at the bar. We’ve found this is one of the best places for people to form new groups and friendships, and bask in the glory of shared creation.
