Bristol Improv Presents… (Bristol Improv / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013

The troupe are enthusiastic and on the ball, playing improv games based on show titles they read out from the Fringe guide. In one scenario, four performers take turns telling a story and are “killed off” by the audience if they stumble. Other games include a story based on random lines from books and a sketch that must change if the presenter demands it. The finale provides a longer set-up, and takes in a falling moon,  astronomers, werewolves and vampires. It also has an especially brilliant opening line; “there are no Pringles left, it’s done”. A talented group, who handle suggested material both imaginatively and hilariously.

Whynot?, until 24 Aug (not 13, 20), 3.00pm.
