Hilarious comedy! Inspired improvisation! Ridiculous stamina! We have it all as we enter the fifth glorious year of the Bristol Improv Marathon.
For a staggering 26 hours a team of intrepid performers will create an entirely improvised, entirely unscripted play using nothing but their skill, imagination and a hefty dose of caffeine. The show brings together performers from all across the city and includes stars of hit shows such as Closer Each Day: The Improvised Soap Opera and Murder, She Didn’t Write by Degrees of Error!
“An impressive display of the actors sheer stamina and creativity. It was extremely entertaining to watch.”
Stage Talk Magazine
“Carrying the flag of improvised theatre with talent and verve.”

Ah, Easter. The time of chocolate, bunnies, fluffy little chicks, and Jesus dying on a cross and then coming back to life again. Far less confusing and much more entertaining than that mixture of Easter goodness is an Easter Special on Monday 22nd April 2019 at 7.30pm at The Wardrobe Theatre.
Put down that bunny, let the chick free, give your chocolate-saturated body a rest, do what Jesus would do and join us for sure-fire fun times!

Our brand new show is coming to Brunel’s SS Great Britain for 5 nights in December 2018 and it is just the thing for a great festive evening out!
Hilarious comedy, astonishing drama, endearing orphans, steam ships, steam trains, figgy puddings and perhaps the odd catchy music hall number! This Christmas join Closer Each Day Company aboard Brunel’s SS Great Britain for something festive, Dickensian and entirely improvised, created on the spot from YOUR suggestions!
Come along for a right old knees up and enjoy improv in the time of cholera!
9th/10th/11th/21st/22nd December at 7pm, in two acts with an interval, finished by 9pm. There is a bar on board selling wine, beer, cider and, of course, mulled wine and maybe even mince pies.

Pilot Season: The Improvised Next Big Thing
Following this May and last May’s sell-out shows on board Brunel’s SS Great Britain, Closer Each Day Company, the creators of Bristol’s cult comedy ‘Closer Each Day: The Improvised Soap Opera’, are thrilled to be back to present a brand new show.
In a world of boxsets, catch-ups and digital content, this a show that you can’t stream or download and that will never be repeated. You, the audience, are the TV executives about to watch the first screening of a pilot episode of a new series (the direction of which will be decided by you in the opening moments). In this show there is no Pause, Rewind or Record: there is only Play. There could be love, lust, fear, despair, mild annoyance – anything can happen!
Bristol’s hottest theatre talent melts minds and captures hearts with their brilliant, truthful and dynamic improvisation; join them in the fantastic setting of this Bristol landmark, as they bring their signature mix of high stakes drama and hilarious comedy to this one-off show that you need to watch!
Show starts at 8pm, but arrive from 6.30pm to look around the ship and museum first. There is a bar serving beer, wine, cider and soft drinks. There will be an interval and the show finishes around 10pm. Hope to see you there!
