INSTANT WIT : 8pm

Instant Wit, the best in improvised comedy. Fresh and inventive, each show throws up new nuggets of hilarity crafted by a company of the highest calibre. It’s a pick-me-up tonic with unexpected twists and a dash of sauce.

There’ll be sketches, songs and general silliness – and all of it based around audience suggestions. And if you’re too shy to shout anything out? Well don’t worry, you’ll have the chance to write things down in the interval. We’re the ones who’ll look daft, not you!

So now’s the time to indulge yourself if you’ve always had a secret yearning to see something really bizarre on stage. How about an English folk song about a tortoise going on holiday? A sketch where Sainsbury’s opens a branch on the moon? Well why not? Your wish is our command. Good suggestions get flying packets of custard, the best a bottle of wine.

Many people have seen improvised comedy on the t.v. – but remember, this is not recorded and edited, but totally live, making it trickier for the actors but more exciting for the audience. So, if you like your comedy fast-paced and with a slightly unusual edge, this is definitely for you.

We’re proud to use some of the best in local talent, with our performers regularly appearing at the Tobacco Factory, Theatre Royal Bath and the Bristol Old Vic.

Instant Wit – a bunch of very Unusual Suspects who are forever on the run from the Comedy Police.

"These are conspicuously skilful performers - everyone is exhilarated on stage and off!" The Guardian

“Instant Wit produce a show of surreal, mad-cap improvised hilarity that will leave you aching with laughter, chuckling with the stupidity of it all and, no doubt, wanting to go again.”

The Schmoozenbergs : 8pm

Conjuring up the mood of 1930s Paris, fused with the energy of a campfire jam session, The Schmoozenbergs’ uplifting gypsy jazz music will put a smile on your face and a bounce in your step.
With two guitars, violin and double bass, they bring irresistible rhythms, lyrical melodies and playful improvisation to create an upbeat and heart-warming sound.

“Relaxed yet upbeat (and eminently accomplished) swinging gypsy-jazz from this Bristol-based four-piece. A delightful break from the stresses of the day.”
(Festivalflyer.com : Glastonbury Festival, 2017)
