An improvised show from the stars of  Whose Line Is It Anyway?.

The resident Impro troupe from the most famous comedy club in the world, The Comedy Store Players have been delighting audiences for over 30 years. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see the original stars of Whose Line is it Anyway? strutting their stuff on tour. Expect lightning-quick reactions and world-class silliness!

There’ll be improvised songs and games and, of course, the audience is always at the helm, leading the show with its suggestions.

Guinness World Records has officially confirmed The Comedy Store Players is the world’s longest-running comedy show with the same cast!

“Witty, silly, satirical, occasionally ludicrous, ultimately crowd-pleasing”

Sky Arts

“A bottomless supply of surreal sketches, dramatic vignettes and almost tuneful operettas… a must for anyone with a pulse and a sense of humour.”


“A supportive crowd wills on six brave performers who arrive with no script and not the faintest idea of what will happen. Through improvisation they create whole sketches and comic dramas that are amazingly inventive and sometimes take off into flights of surreal brilliance. Whose Line Is it Anyway? is a pale TV imitation.”

The Telegraph

“We’re lucky to be living in a world that has them in it… go see them make magic live.”
