The Improfessionals Show - Improvised Comedy in English

Six actors. One musician. No script.

A creative cocktail of sketches and scenes all made up on the spot by Paris’s premier
international improvisation troupe. Fantastic fables, captivating characters and
spontaneous silliness meet for 75 mintues of original comedy.

The Improfessionals Show is composed of:

  • short scenes (3-5 minutes) based on suggestions from the audience or a set up from one of the actors
  • longer stories (10-15 minutes)
  • some silly games
  • moments of audience participation on stage (volunteers only!)

Anything can happen in this comedy show that reinvents itself every time.
