17 Feb - Scared Scriptless: Tisk Mister
Four improvisers compete in a series of bizarre (and hopefully hilarious) challanges, scenes and tasks issued to them by our Tisk Mister, Pengelly. The winner will take it all (like ABBA) while the loser will be put to death (like Hunger Games). Come for the comedy. Stay for the shaming.

Audience Reviews (4)
"Hilarious, the interaction with the audience was amazing and one actor in particular had an extra amount of flair and dazzle which had my entire table laughing and loving it all night (sea hag man I don't know your name but you are beloved), but they all played off each other to make a hilarious show that was wacky and creative and had the whole room laughing. the musical accompaniment really topped it off too and led to some truly show-stopping singing. For my first ever comedy improv show I'm highly impressed!! ""I have been to this show about 4-5 times now. Every show is highly entertaining. The Jesters do a wonderful job. ""Spur of the moment idea to check this out. Down from Welly for a long weekend and this was a great suggestion. Very talented group and awesome audience interaction. Just wasn't long enough!""Playing to a late-night audience, it would be easy for the Jesters to devolve into crass or coarse humour. I was really impressed at their own ability to monitor and redirect each other mid-show, to make sure the overall result was adult-rated, but not in poor taste. A great ability to work with each other to control the situation, on the fly."
