Edinburgh Fringe Improvisation

Improvisation acts are an opportunity to see performers attempt to come up with something entertaining on the spot. Yesterday I saw two improvisation acts.

Firstly during the recording of Jo Whiley and Simon Mayo’s show I saw Baby want’s chocolate; they were given a theme and immediately came up with a musical style song. It was towards the end of the show.


Then I saw Improvbungo at The Space at Niddry. They are there every night until Saturday at 9.20pm. As the audience was going in, we all had to write a location on a piece of paper, all these were put into a jar and then one was picked during the show. Similar audience interaction determined that the 6 actors would act out a thriller murder mystery movie set around a garage called the Mad Mechanic. Some audience members were given buzzers to influence the show. For example, when one buzzer was pressed the performer speaking had to on the spot develop and sing a song.
