So, I'm in an improv comedy group in Newcastle called Spontaneous Wrecks. This is our Facebook page and here's our Twitter.


We do a show every month in the city centre, at the Bridge Hotel pub opposite the Castle Keep (good beer there), and each one has a different theme. The next one is on Wednesday 5th April, just a few days after WrestleMania 33, so it seemed clear that we had to do a wrestling-themed show!




ImprovMania will be a night of 'Whose Line Is It Anyway' style games and scenes, all made up on the spot and led by audience suggestions - but with a wrestling twist.


I've never plugged one of our shows on here before, but with this month being a wrestling theme, if any north-east based UKFFers fancy a comical end to their WrestleMania week, please do come along.


Tickets are £4 on the door or 2-for-£5 if you buy online in advance here. Doors are at 7.30pm, show scheduled for 8pm, but in true BritWres fashion it'll probably be a couple of minutes after 8 when we get going.


A couple of us are big wrestling fans so will be doing our best to get as many in-jokes and references into the show as possible that the likes of you lot will enjoy, and wrestling suggestions are welcome, but there'll also be plenty of non-wrestling content so we don't alienate our audience - or players - who've never seen wrestling before! 


(For example, we'll probably be playing the classic 'Whose Line' game 'Party Quirks' - but it'll be played under Royal Rumble rules, where a new player will enter every 30 seconds. That kind of thing. Trying to please non-fans and fans alike!)


Finally, the event page, with full venue and show details etc, is here (there's another ticket link in here too). Much like WrestleMania itself, anything could happen at ImprovMania...


(And if you don't fancy that, May 3rd is our Star Wars show!)

HG, I think it is very selfish of you doing this in Newcastle, rather than say, Bath, Bradford on Avon or Bristol. 


Anyway have a good one, sounds like a top event.

Thanks Gus. It's extremely selfish, I agree, so if you want to book us all the way down there and pay us I'm sure we could consider a little holiday!

I think I'll get along to this. Not been to The Bridge for years. 

Still sealed, as new, comedy box sets for sale. Go on, treat yourself to a good laugh!
