Genuinely Fantastic—The Tab
We are the biggest, oldest and best loved University improvised comedy (improv) troupe in Cambridge. Improv is totally made up on the spot, and comes in two varieties: short form and long form. Short form shows consist of a series of unrelated short games; long form shows are a consistent narrative lasting the entire length of the show. We do both.
We love performing at balls, comedy nights, and similar events. We'll also do charity gigs for free if you're trying to raise money. Get in touch with the committee to make a booking.
If you'd like to have a go at improv youself, you can come along to our beginners' workshops. They're friendly and welcoming, and don't assume any prior improv experience. They're open to everybody affiliated with the University of Cambridge or Anglia Ruskin University. Email our committee for more details. If you shine at beginners' workshops, you'll be invited to members' workshops, and start to get the opportunity to perform in real shows.
You can get updates on our upcoming shows by subscribing to our mailing list.
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? The answers to these questions and more depend on you. Provide us with your ideas for an original superhero and watch as the Cambridge Impronauts spin an improvised tale of heroic proportions.
Based on your suggestions, every performance showcases a different style of the superhero genre: whether it’s the gritty pseudo-realism of the Dark Knight or the whimsical world-saving of the Avengers, every night is a unique adventure tailored to what you want to see.
