Information:

Instant Wit! The best in improvised comedy.

Fresh and inventive, each show throws up new nuggets of hilarity crafted by a company of the highest calibre. It's a pick-me-up tonic with unexpected twists and a dash of sauce.

There'll be sketches, songs and general silliness - and all of it based around audience suggestions. And if you're too shy to shout anything out? Well don't worry, you'll have the chance to write things down in the interval. We're the ones who'll look daft, not you!

So now's the time to indulge yourself of you've always had a secret yearning to see something really bizarre on stage. A country and western song about a musical cat flap? Julius Ceasar on a camping holiday with Cleopatra? Well, why not? Your wish is our command. Good suggestions get flying packets of custard, the best a bottle of wine.

Many people have seen improvised comedy on the t.v. - but remember, this is not recorded and edited, but totally live, making it trickier for the actors but more exciting for the audience. So, if you like your comedy fast-paced and with a slightly unusual edge, this is definately for you.

We're proud to use some of the best local talent, with our performers regularly appearing at the Tobacco Factory, Theatre Royal Bath and Bristol Old Vic.

Instant Wit - a bunch of very unusual suspects who are forever on the run from the comedy police!

"These are conspicuously skilful performers - everyone is exhilarated on stage and off!" - The Guardian

"Extremely funny, on occasion hilarious... Very clever and skilful with their improvised comedy sketches. They got the audience involved at every oppourtunity - they even made up a song about a round of sausage sandwiches I had had for breakfast!" - Bristol Evening Post
