The Improverts is a long-running improvisational comedy troupe, produced by the EUTC. They perform every Friday night at 10.30pm at Bedlam Theatre during Edinburgh University’s term time to an often packed house. Various improvisation games based on audience suggestions give rise to a hilarious and unique show every time. They also perform yearly at the Edinburgh Fringe and are notable for being, at 25 years, the Edinburgh Fringe’s longest running improvised comedy show.

Tickets to The Improverts usually sell out quickly. As a result, you are encouraged to book your tickets online to avoid disappointment!

Review for The Improverts -

Saturday 18 May - By Sam Bradley for The Student

One of the finest acts on the student comedy scene and one of the most reliably riotous nights out on a student budget, the Improverts’ Friday night slot is a comic staple of the local circuit and deserves to be seen by every student in Edinburgh.

Tuesday 21 August - By M H Allner for FringeGuru

Unmissable and a staple part of the Fringe, this Edinburgh University-based troupe of comics is a symbol of the comedy scene in the city… An energetic, must-see for any and all who like to laugh.

Review for The Improverts -

Friday 03 August - By Adam Bloodworth for Broadway Baby

The show is conceptually fresh and seriously funny, as all pitch in, taking it in turns to lose their dignity in front of a meaty, sold out audience.
