Since 2017 they have been swooping in to bring improvised comedy to those eager to bear witness and hapless bystanders alike. Watch agog as they transform the stage into a portal for madness and wonderment, drawing on audience suggestions to create an unrehearsed, unscripted and entirely ungovernable performance!

This slick duo is ready to freestyle rap their faces off as they face off against each other improv style. Eva and Sanja will weave improvised freestyle raps around their scenes telling a multi-layered tale that may even end in competition! 

Capetown's longest-running, award-winning improv troupe present...Room with a (...)! A hotel room is more than a place.  Hotel rooms have many closely guarded secrets..and if only walls could talk... Watch how the magic of improvised storytelling can unfold in one room where love is lost and found, confrontations spark, lives change and truths are revealed.
