    Improv Mullet by Comedy Sportz

    Brand New comedy from the team behind ComedySportz and Let's See What Happens.

    Frequently asked questions about Improv Mullet:
    Why Improv Mullet? Because the first half is fast-paced, quick-witted gags and games, the second half is longer scenes, sketches and stories.
    And it’s Improvised? Yup. it's 100% improvised from audience suggestions.
    Cool. Like ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’ *sigh* Yes. Like ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway.’
    Do I need a mullet to find it funny? No. But if you have a genuine mullet you get in for free. Sound fair?
    When is it? First Saturday of every month. Even the rubbish months like March.
    How much is it? £3 on the door. That’s a lot of comedy for not a lot of money.
    Wait, aren’t you ComedySportz, Manchester’s longest running Improv troupe? Haven’t you performed worldwide, with sold-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe where you performed for royalty? Yes. Yes we are.
