THE COMPANY: IMPRO MELBOURNE'S contribution to Australia's live performance culture is extensive and impressive. For more than 25 years, the company's Theatresports™ season has thrilled audiences with expert displays of improvised comedy and 'competitive sport'. Add more than 10 years of sell-out shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (Late Night Impro and Celebrity Theatresports™), and you have an improvised theatre company without peer.
THE SHOWS: Included in the variety of formats every week will be SuperScene (a format from Germany), How 'Bout This?, Theatresports™, Maestro™, The Harold and many more. As every performance is improvised from audience suggestions, each and every show is a unique theatrical experience!
Some of) THE PEOPLE: IMPRO MELBOURNE regulars include Lliam Amor (Thank God You're Here, The Micallef Program), Jason Geary (Skit House, Thank God You're Here), Patti Stiles (Neighbours), Rik Brown (Comedy Smackdown) and Simon Dowling (Thank God You're Here).
IMPRO MELBOURNE is proud to be a part of the exciting and always-changing culture that is the City of Stonnington.
