The Water Poet is playing host to a festival showcasing the talent and variety of improvisation groups in London. Across three days, thirty of London’s best comedy improv and sketch groups will be amazing audiences (and themselves) with their spontaneous, quick witted and absurdly funny scenes, sketches, stories and songs. Plus, there'll be craft beer and quality food available to purchase.
The 2017 headliners include: Multiverse, Music Box, Shakespair, The Coaterie, Comedy Shenanigans and City Impro. They are joined by Paniky Tack, Left Foot First, Human Machine, Duck Duck Tales and many more! In addition, the Festival also proud to announce:
