-Why Join Us?-
- We encourage a supportive, kind and inclusive community of improvisors.
- We welcome everyone, regardless of experience and background!
- We teach improv comedy, which will help build your confidence.
-What do we do?-
University is the perfect place to try new and scary things. What could be scarier than standing in front of a bunch of strangers and trying to make them laugh with no script or plan? This is the society where we teach you how to do it.
We will teach you the fundamental skills necessary for improv, and provide an encouraging environment for you to hone your collaborative skills and find your comedic voice. Here are some of the things we have done in ImprovSoc:
- Drop-in sessions twice a week (It's never too late to join!)
- Workshops with experienced improv coaches
- Live performances in Bournemouth
- We perform at Edinburgh Fringe - a week long run at the Free Fringe in Edinburgh.
- Collaborated with the BBC Centre on a live improv show.
As fun and crazy as these events are, every single thing we do here is 100% voluntary across the board - if you just want to stop by to chat and play, then you are absolutely welcome! The more the merrier :)

-2023 Edinburgh Fringe Trip-
Our performance was called 'Jury Duty', a group of "Lawyers" (the Improvisors) would act out the supposed crimes of an audience member!
We performed for 7 days, raising money for the society through the audience's donations!
In our time off from performances, we were able to explore the beautiful city of Edinburgh and the local culture, and go see other Fringe performance's.
