We enjoyed @SpecSciShow at #Fringe2019: expect nice jokes, explosions, and interesting experiments. It's a nice way to introduce kids to STEM. Hopefully more next year!

Cambridge Impronauts 10:41 on 26th August Twitter

Congratulations @zeroko_jp for a joyful and delightful show ("Zeroko's tea time") at #Fringe2019. It was one of our favourites from this year's fringe. Looking forward to next year!

Cambridge Impronauts 10:39 on 26th August Twitter

Congratulations @Maydays for your excellent show "Happily Never After"! It was a beautiful showcase of all the craft in improv: witty, chivalrous, and hilarious. The songs were so well done that it was hard to believe they were improvised! #Fringe2019

Yesterday, in #ImprovActually: Agatha is a candlemaker who enjoys setting fires. Elizabeth works in a match-factory but dreams of being a librarian.
The 1st date goes wrong and Agatha burns the restaurant: will they be able to recover, or are Liz's books fuel for Agatha's fire?

One of our improvisers helped in @phelanmagician's magic show and was very impressed with the blue glo-sticks trick! #Fringe2019

Cambridge Impronauts 23:20 on 25th August Twitter

Well done @BrodiSnook for your show today! We appreciated your courage and vulnerability, and your jokes about "all your eggs in one bastard" and "running away from yourself legwork". #Fringe2019

#ImprovActually: "Plant-tonic love". Nicholas is a retired headmaster who loves walking. John is a tree-hugger who loves making cosies for the trees in winter. They fall in love at the fete of their local town...
But will their differences be too great?…

Cambridge Impronauts 23:26 on 23rd August Twitter

We're almost at the end of #EdFringe19 so not many more chances to come and see #ImprovActually.
It's at 12:30 @Gildedballoon (Patter Hoose)
And it's suitable for ages 12+ so maybe you can bring the kids……

Cambridge Impronauts 23:00 on 23rd August Twitter

Thanks @BabaBrinkman for organising the Mic Drop yesterday. We had fun inventing the national anthem for a new country and playing a rap battle with you!

A glimpse from an "Improv Actually" show at #EdFringe19

"Love at first bite": Jason Russel is an alligator wrestler who meets Samantha, a doctor who hates animals. Jason falls head-over-heels and lies about his job. Will he be able to make up for it?...…

Thanks to @ShellShockImpro for inviting us to the Improv Jam on Tuesday. We had a brilliant time meeting and playing with so many others, and learned some great new short-form games.
Loving #EdFringe19!

Yesterday's #ImprovActually show @Gildedballoon:
"How to train your Saxon".
Hengest is a Saxon warlord well versed in war and battle. Saga, a Norse witch, visits the hillfort on a trade mission and they spend time together. \1

Yesterday we had "Cool Mill", where Rob, a fashion designer who likes cycling and scootering about, meets Denise, a Milan cycle mechanic. They met when Rob has a flat tire and their hands get stuck with the puncture repair glue...

We had a lot of fun creating "Brie my Baby!" with yesterday's audience of #ImprovActually at #EdFringe19.

Angus was a heavy metal guitarist with a soft heart.
Madame Beauvoir? A ballet teacher.
Could Metal-Ballet lead to love?

"Love is in the belly"
Yesterday, the #ImprovActually audience decided that our protagonist was a priest whose hobby was belly-dancing.
Priest Cuthbertson, the vicar in a quiet town, spends Wednesday and Saturday nights on his favourite hobby of belly-dancing.
