“Inspired and hilarious” – The Herald Sun


IMPROVILICIOUS!

Impro-larious Comedy for Kids, Families and Schools

 

Improvilicious is a hilarious 55 minute improvised comedy show for everyone aged 10 years+.

 
Two improvisers deliver a six-part epic adventure, using audience suggestions, classic and new Theatresports-style games, funny scripted bits, and special guest performers from the audience. And because it’s improvised, every show features a unique new story and characters.

PEOPLE

AMBERLY CULL When Amberly was 10, she was on a boat and she was awarded coolest kid on the ship - this is her greatest achievement to date. Amberly loves doing all the things. She loves puppets, animals, theatre - even vegetables. When Amberly was younger she would play the legend of Zelda, but she thought that if she got hurt in the game she would get hurt in real life so she stayed in Kakarico village for hours. She is braver these days still loves Zelda, as well as Portal, Pokemon and anything in the world of Mario!

BEN RUSSELL Comic, actor and writer. The Tokyo Hotel, Aaron Chen Tonight, Nö Shöw, The Grub and Little Scamps. 2015 Golden Gibbo Nominee - Melbourne International Comedy Festival

BRIANNA WILLIAMS likes improv, comedy, and playing games with bright colours and loud sounds! Her foray into gaming began in 1998 when, in an attempt to impress her brother, she starting playing Final Fantasy VII. What was REALLY impressive was that she had to employ her brother's help to beat the really hard bosses, but she still beat the game which is what counts: winning.

CASSIE DALY has been improvising almost as long as she's been playing video games! As a kid, she never had her own console but always kept up with the best games at friends' houses! Now, Cassie lives in a house with an Xbox, PlayStation, Wii, N64 AND a SNES. Come over and play Mario Kart some time! Cassie's favourite game will always be The Sims - which probably says a lot about her personality...

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

LOUISA FITZHARDINGE loves games of all kinds - from Mario Kart to a cheeky round of Bananagrams! Her video game journey began when, at the ripe age of 10, she was given a Game Boy and a copy of Pokémon Yellow for her birthday. Since then she’s fallen in love with Portal, Skyrim, World of Warcraft, Braid and The Sims, but she’ll never forget those magical days of wandering around Kanto and attempting to beat Team Rocket. Her favourite things include improv, musicals, potatoes and wearing clothing with tiny pencils printed on it.
