Impro Unwrapped: Australian Impro Community Unite To Help Charity for Xmas

So how does it work? You bring a wrapped Christmas gift to the show. We will randomly select and unwrap gifts during the show. The unwrapped gifts will be the inspiration for our Christmas stories and songs all made up on the spot, without a script, without a rehearsal, live before your very eyes! At the end of the night, gifts will be re-wrapped and donated to the fine folk at St Vincent De Paul to pass on to those less fortunate.

Quickhit: Catch comics doing festival previews before the Adelaide Fringe starts

The last few weeks have seen a smorgasbord of special-guest-spots from comedians testing their festival shows before heading off to Adelaide, where the Fringe Festival kicks off from February 26th. So for those of us who don’t live in Adders, this week is the last chance to catch some of these people around the traps for a month or more.
