If you've never seen an Impro Melbourne show, do yourself and your endorphins a favour and go and see a show. There are two reasons why I'm a regular at their shows: firstly, because they're so hilarious. They're a little like a box of chocolates - you never know what you're going to get but you can be assured of some sweet delights. Secondly, they're so affordable! I buy my tickets online for $15 and if I'm bringing my family, I can get a family ticket which includes two adults and two kids for just $40.
How does Impro work? Basically, there are a number of players and they're usually given a topic, and it's their task to come with a script on the spot. There's no rehearsing and the results are often hilarious. Think about television shows like "Who's Line is it Anyway"; this is a live performance version of that.
Impro Melbourne presents Mork and Mind. This is a special event in addition to their usual fare.
This show is "A celebration of Robin Williams' life and a charity show – fundraising for Mind Australia in celebration of the life and memory of a comic genius." Mind Australia is a community run service providing support and information in regards to mental illness for sufferers and their families.
Do yourself a favour and support a great organisation while enjoying a night of comedy at the Courthouse Hotel at 86 Errol Street North Melbourne.
