The Cambridge

★★★★★ Genuinely FantasticThe 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.

Book Us

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.

Join Us

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.

in Improv from the Crypt

August 15-24 at 00:45 (60 min),
Laughing Horse @ The Counting House, Edinburgh

Join the Cambridge Impronauts for an evening of untold terror, laughter and music as they take the world of horror, spin it around, and kick it down the stairs. Audience suggestions give lifeblood to a monstrous creation, meaning that a new tale of woe is constructed every single night. If you don’t come out laughing, you won’t come out at all!

in Mission Improv-able

6 - 10 May 2014,
Corpus Playroom

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to join the Cambridge Impronauts as we travel to a world of sharp suits, sharp knives and sharper wit, as we take the spy thriller genre, put a gun to its head and give it a thorough shakedown.

Following our signature blend of laughter, song and cold-blooded assassination, each night will feature a whole new host of cunning rogues, monstrous henchmen and devilish schemes. With you suggestions kept firmlyin mind, we'll weave a whole new narrative in the style of your favourite spy film, novel, play or video game.

You provide the intelligence, we'll provide the action.

No scripts. No rehearsals. No problem.
