Ex-imps impress

The imps are a training as well as a performance company, so it's been great to see a couple of our flock achieve the recognition they deserve in recent weeks.

First up, congratulations to Chris Turner, who reached the finals of 'So You Think You're Funny?' 2010, following in the footsteps of previous Imps such as Rose Heiney back in 2004.  Chris has also just won the Comedy Store's 'King Gong' showcase, which has launched the careers of performers as diverse as Alexei Sayle: we expect the fame to go to his head any day now.

Meanwhile, plaudits are also due to imp alumna Rachel Parris, who is up for the finals of the 2010 Funny Women awards.  They'll be taking place in the Leicester Square theatre on the 20th of September; London-based fans of comedy, musical improvisation and/or women can find booking details here.

If this has given you a taste for the life of an improviser, then good for you, you obviously have excellent taste. Not only that: you're in luck! We will be holding our annual auditions in October, and it would be criminal if you didn't attend. Take a look at all the details here.
