Absolute Improv!

Comedy troupe To Be Continued... present a hilarious hour of spontaneous shenanigans. Paul, Sam and Harry are a good team, each with their own particular quirkiness.

A quick glance at their website shows that they have a whole array of games to choose from, so it's safe to assume that each show they do is going to be very different. Today they warmed up with an eighties style rap-off, where the audience chose a random word that the lyrics were centred around. As with all improv performances, the show requires a great deal of audience participation. As a result, how good the show is can sometimes depend on how imaginative the audience are. This particular crowd didn't seem to be aware that their involvement was imperative and were relatively reluctant to get involved.

The players were not deterred, however, full of spirit and bounding about the stage, making up for the lack of audience enthusiasm with their own. They chose which games to play on the spot, adding to the impulsive atmosphere. A few obliging members of the audience got the ball rolling and the players set about creating sketches. Extremely quick-witted and intuitive, the troupe clearly know each other well, being able to ricochet off each other with an uninterrupted flow of merriment. While the whole set is amusing, the players excel at absurdist humour, earning the biggest laugh when they pretended to be pieces of cheese in a sauna. The evening show is family friendly and will keep you feeling full of fluffy mirth for the rest of the night.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
