Improvised Characters


On 20th June we have our very special workshop Improvised Characters’.
Have you ever fancied being someone else for a while? A supermarket pirate, an elephant’s child, an operatic diver or an operating diva, a drunk prime minister or part of the team in the Queen’s best tea set? Have you ever wondered how it would feel to slip into another persona?
This is a workshop for people:
– New to improvisation
– Want an opportunity to gain more confidence in themselves.
– To learn to find ways to improvise characters.

This workshop is designed to help people reconnect with their own inspiration and creativity (that sometimes get brushed aside in these busy times).

Our lovely, kind and brilliant Antony Noad is going to host and guide this special class.
It starts at 10am until 2pm at
The Theatre Delicatessen
19 Farringdon Road
London EC1R 3ER
Only £20 for the whole day

Taster Session


We close the month of June with our monthly Taster Session on 24th June.

Two hours discovering what improvising comedy can be – what better way to explore the fun, joy and laughter, than actually doing it and experiencing it first hand?

We would like to invite you an evening of games and laughter. The supportive teamwork will enable participants to feel free to embrace ‘foolishness’ and capture a childlike spirit of playfulness.

This evening will be led by the warm and friendly Sophie Pumphrey & Antony Noad.

Time: 7-9pm, at

Torriano Meeting House,

99 Torriano Avenue,

London, NW5 2RX.

It has been an amazing evening so far, but don’t take my word for it and please read the testimonial feedback:

‘Really fun, practical introduction to Improv led by three awesome and talented teachers. Highly recommend these courses to others interested in learning about improvisation. It was really fun, you’re so full of energy and intensity, love it! So much fun! Anthony and Sophie are very good teachers!’ (Jamie)
