Micky Overman (★★★★ - The Voice), was nominated for Chortle Best Newcomer, has done tour support for Jamali Maddix and received millions of views on her social media sketches. "A pin-sharp torrent of precision gags and delightfully silly one-liners" - Observer Patrick Spicer: Who’s This All of a Sudden?

Ghost Written by The Descendants

Hoopla Impro’s narrative house team, The Descendants present: Ghost Written.

The Importance of Being Anxious

Hal Cantor is a middle-aged, white cis-gendered American male (but don’t hold that against him). The last thing he’d ever be accused of being is privileged and powerful. Besides, there are many more things about Hal that are problematic. Like he came out as gay. Late. Very late. But then again, he always thought of himself as a 60/40 guy. The problem was: he didn’t know the 60. His explorations of trying to figure that out — what today might be called fluid sexuality or bisexuality — is just one of the many subjects explored in The Importance of Being Anxious, which you might call a coming-of-middle-age comedy. Hal’s breathtakingly honest, and often hilarious look at himself — and the state of his mental health as it pertains to grief, shame, sexuality, popular culture, religion, and career (Hal writes TV for Hollywood, that most equitable and non-triggering of places) — is spot-on to our moment. The Importance of Being Anxious — by its very form — demonstrates The Importance of Theatre and its unique ability to reflect life back to us, warts ’n all, with humour and heart. And lots of gay sex.

Cul-Baret

Cul-baret the brazen Cabaret by Impossible Theatre features ten artists as bold as brass from different disciplines. In this second edition of their Cabaret, Impossible Theatre will go further and will take the audience on a shameless journey. So be ready to be blown away with a night full of fun, glitter, sass, and naughtiness. Be brass and leave your shame at the door.

JEMIMA SMALLBONES

A new one woman show titled JEMIMA SMALLBONES. Endearingly naïve (she gives us that impression), 40 something Jemima Smallbones talks openly about her frustrations of NOT ever being a lesbian. Think Shirley Valentine meets Birds of a Feather. When Sara revealed to the Casting Directors that she had written the piece they advised her to turn the monologue into a one woman show because Sara's writing and performance style impressed them.

Ascent

This autobiographical piece explores class identity and social mobility as a working-class woman takes the audience on a journey through time and space, navigating her way through different social spheres in order to find her place in the world. It weaves the theme of space throughout, highlighting the way in which social mobility forces us to drift through class barriers and once you go too far there is no way back to who you once were. Diversely relatable, the show tackles the concept of discovering where we fit in on the social ladder and how attributes such as wealth, accent, etiquette and education affect our social standing. Immersed with physical theatre, multi-rolling and spoken word, this one-woman show is funny yet necessary and reflective of our society which focuses more on merit than reducing inequality. Celebrating what makes us different, this thought-provoking show highlights that we can’t choose where we come from, but we can take all our favourite parts from it and choose where we go.

Cara Connors: Straight for Pay

A “formerly kept woman and your current girlfriend’s favourite ex-girlfriend,” Cara Connors has performed at Montreal’s prestigious Just for Laughs Festival, is a series regular on E!’s Dating #NoFilter, and is the creator and star of the feminist investigative comedy Cara Takes Up Space on OUTtv, A perpetual late bloomer, the hour explores their second adolescence and sexual awakening, post-divorce “rumspringa,” and occasionally feral existence as a queer, millennial comedian chasing her dreams in Los Angeles while trying to make up for lost time. It’s messy and vulnerable, and also very, very funny. “This effervescent comedian has become a headliner, actor, producer, writer, creator and on-screen star. Her meaningful shenanigans would make Sacha Baron Cohen proud.” - Chicago Now “They were relentless, electric, authentic, and a human embodiment of what Adderall was invented to quiet. Their comedy leaned into the absurd, and this may be the key to their success. Weirdness invites weirdness. Within the span of an hour, Connors’ openness and authenticity became infectious.” - The Varsity “With­out utter­ing a sin­gle word, Con­nors announced her hilar­i­ous arrival to the stage. The show was a wild ride, fast paced at times, pep­pered with thought­ful pas­sages, and all with Con­nors mov­ing about the stage to engage with her sold out audi­ence. Her char­ac­ter work through­out the show was a blur of impres­sions. Don’t pass up the chance for a non-stop evening of comedy.” - Comedy Wham “Even after catching a break, Cara remains humble, authentic and hungry to share her stop-for-no-man attitude.” - Fools Magazine “Connors just likes to have fun, to have hoot & holler energy, which is what those attending her show can expect.” - Austin Chronicle

Tadhg Hickey – In One Eye, Out The Other

Acclaimed Irish comedian Tadhg Hickey - "Outstanding physical and comedic performer" - The Scotsman - brings you his weird and wonderful part-theatre, part-stand-up comedy show, In One Eye, Out The Other. The show tells the story of Feargal, a downtrodden but cheery man who fulfilled his lifelong dream of becoming an alcoholic. Using the Catholic calendar as a roadmap, Feargal leads us on a surreal and hilarious journey with many poignant twists in the hope of arriving at a sort of light at the end of the tunnel for the bright man. The show is loosely based on Tadhg's own journey with alcoholism. During promotion of the show, Tadhg went public with his own story and has since had many mental health and alcohol action groups, as well as sufferers reach out to him. "I started writing the show when I was still drinking, maybe trying to find the funny side of slowly drinking myself to death. Sober now years, not in my wildest dreams did I imagine the drunken scribblings would one day make it to an international audience and possibly help someone else who might be struggling with alcoholism". - Tadhg Hickey In One Eye, Out The Other is characteristically brave and ambitious, as Tadhg searches for cathartic humour in a surreal retelling of his own battle with alcoholism. "Great art. A vital catharsis. I laughed until I cried. Go see it." - Sunday Independent "Both funny and poignant; a brave, risky performance. This is exciting work" - The Independent

Njambi McGrath: Work in Progress

Black Black is a political comedy hour delivered with the confidence of the no. 10 Downing Street cat. It satirises the idiosyncrasies of modern-day British politics with stark parallels of the colonial past. As Britain declares a culture war in a bid to contain the ugly ghost of its past, Njambi scrutinizes her grandmother’s life whose entire life was determined by British occupation in Kenya in her new show Black Black. She explores striking similarities of racial politics implications on blacks, amid growing emboldened racism. On arrival in early 1900’s Kenya the British created a society of haves and have-nots causing rampant homelessness, deportation, starvation, and delinquency whilst despots lined their pockets with ill gained money. Amidst mass deportations, mass deforestation, growing nationalism, Nazism and socialism, modern British politics has never been so close to 1940s, but no one could have imagined that vanilla scented vaginas would be the polarising spanner in the works.

Be a Better Performer: Improver’s Summer School. Wouldn’t you like to be the best comic creator and performer that you possibly could be? This is a course suitable for: People who have worked with Logan before. Comics and performers who feel stuck in a rut.

People who enjoy a good laugh and believe, as Winnicott famously said, that ‘all creativity comes out of play’.

Spend six weekend sessions with Logan Murray as we look at ways of improving your performance. The group size will be small, so book early to avoid disappointment. Let’s explore Spontaneity, emotional exaggeration, distal and proximal movement, basic clowning skills, creating narratives, audience complicity, ranting and creating and inhabiting extreme versions of ourselves (among other things…). There will be a few writing exercises along the way, to generate fresh material, but the vast majority of the sessions will be entirely practical And physical. All the games are designed to make us better comedians and performers. There is an optional final show where we get present our ‘new and improved’ selves to the general public and peers.
