Cambridge Impronauts

Who are we?

The Cambridge Impronauts are the biggest and oldest Improvised Comedy troupe in Cambridge (Since 2003), and our members are a mixture of students from both universities, and locals. We love Improv because we get to create new stories, situations, emotions, and reactions every time we step on stage. Audiences love it because they get to help create something with their suggestions, and they know they’ve seen a genuinely unique show!

We create shows based on sketches and games, and also entire improvised plays. See Past Shows for an overview.

We also run free weekly Open Workshops for students and locals alike during term time. Want to get involved with improv and learn some skills, make friends and have a laugh? Come along!

Would you like us to create a show for your event? Send us a message! We perform at may balls, freshers’ shows, garden parties, events and more. We can also perform for free at welfare and charity events!
