Cambridge Impronauts (formerly ICE)

Welcome to the Impronauts website. We are a Cambridge University-based improvised comedy group who perform live, made-up-on-the-spot shows in theatres and other venues around the city and beyond.

Cambridge Improv Festival

The Cambridge Impronauts are proud to present the 2013 Cambridge Improv Festival. Each night from Wednesday 20th - Saturday 23rd November, the Impronauts will challenge a different troupe to a battle of wits, japes and saying silly words.

Our dastardly rivals will be:

Wednesday 20th: The Underground Players
Thursday 21st: Cambridge Improv Factory
Friday 22nd: The Oxford Imps
Saturday 23rd: Improvised Comedy Ents and Impronauts Alumni

All shows are at 7pm at the Howard Theatre in Downing College, and cost £5/£4 students.

To book ahead, use this form. As well as booking for all four shows, there is a special Festival Ticket available for £9/7 for which you can watch as much of the festival as you like.

For more details, see our Facebook event.

Michaelmas 2013's main show will be Improv from the Crypt at the Corpus Playroom:

Improv from the Crypt

Join the Cambridge Impronauts for an evening of untold terror, laughter and music as they take the world of horror, spin it around, kick it down the stairs and stick a moustache on it. Audience suggestions give lifeblood to a monstrous creation, meaning that a new tale of woe is constructed every single night.

Scream as the Archmage Dung Beetle unleashes an army of resurrected fridges to blast a hole in the Boyzone layer. Cry out in horror as the Devil himself takes on the Corpus Chronophage at Connect Four to see who will gain custody of George Lucas’ soul. Cackle with malevolent glee as the mutated form of Alan Sugar’s head transplanted onto the body of a tapir runs amok in Norman Bates’ kitchen.

If you don’t come out laughing, you won’t come out at all!

For more details see our Facebook event.


For our smaller shows this term, direct your eyeballs to the right, under the Shows heading.

We run regular free workshops and practice sessions during the University Full Term which anyone (even non-students) are welcome to attend. They are for performers of all levels of experience to come and have a go at developing their improv skills, and maybe even join us on stage!
