IMPROVILICIOUS!

The Improvised Guide to Video Games 

 

Switch off that video game and come to our totally unscripted, spontaneously live and awesomely improvised show about… VIDEO GAMES. From Pac-Man to Pokémon, from crushing the candy to saving the princess, our players will put you in the game!
 
The latest release of Improvilicious features everything you want from a video game, but live on stage!
 
Extraordinary characters, fantastic worlds, epic challenges, weird sound effects and even cute animations – all created by two performers, based on suggestions from the audience, via a magical interface called “a stage.”
 
Expect to see a few audience members sucked into the game Jumanji-style. No tricky consoles (just shout out commands), and graphics so good you’ll think it’s the REAL THING. And because it’s improvised, every show is a new and unique awesome ADVENTURE!

PEOPLE

BRIANNA WILLIAMS
Comedian, writer and definitely not three kids in a trench coat. A senior member of The Big Hoo-Haa! Melbourne, Williams has performed all over the world, from Edinburgh, to New York City, to Rottnest Island. Her unique blend of solo sketch comedy has earned critical acclaim in Melbourne Fringe, Perth Fringeworld and Melbourne International Comedy Festival. On Channel 10 she co-hosts The Bachelor/Bachelorette Unpacked.

CASSIE DALY 
began performing at the age of 12, when her teacher taught her Space Jump and she learnt she could make people laugh without saying “poo” or “fart”. A constant performer, Cassie has played Juliet in Romeo and Juliet, Olivia in Twelfth Night and Portia in The Merchant of Venice - and has toured schools all over WA and Victoria with countless theatre in education productions.

JIMMY JAMES EATON
Ever since Jimmy first got a Sega Master System with an inbuilt Alex Kid game way back in 1989, he’s been hooked on video games. Jimmy now does live comedy, TV shows, voices cartoon movies and basically anything else he can do to afford extra time and money to buy and play more video games. His favourite game is The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time. "An hour of laugh out loud." ★★★★ The Herald Sun
