Thursday 2 November at 7.30pm | Bath Spa Univeristy Theatre | Tickets £10/8/5


Bristol’s highly acclaimed Comedy Improvisation Company INSTANT WIT are delighted to be returning to the Bath Spa University Theatre.


Welcome to an evening of songs, gags and general silliness – all of it based around audience suggestions. Do you fancy a scene set in the loo at 10 Downing Street but played in a Shakespearian style? Or how about a folk song about some rubber gloves that are a size too small?  But don’t worry, nobody is forced to participate and we even build in a section where anonymous suggestions, written down in the interval, can be acted out. Good suggestions receive flying packets of custard; the best of the evening gets a bottle of wine!


Many people have seen improvised comedy on the TV but remember, this is not recorded and edited, but totally live! If you like your comedy fast-paced and with a slightly unusual edge, this is definitely for you.


Instant Wit use some of the best of local talent and squad members include Nik Howden (Hetty Feather Bristol Old Vic and tour), Howard Coggins (Treasure Island, Henry VIII and Peter Pan Bristol Old Vic) and Chris Bianchi (Tartuffe Tobacco Factory Theatres). The team this time round will include Jon Monie (Aladdin Theatre Royal Bath),  Bryn Holding  (King John The Egg, Theatre Royal Bath)  plus Artistic Director Stephanie Weston.


Instant Wit – a bunch of very Unusual Suspects who are forever on the run from the Comedy Police!


These are conspicuously skilful performers – everyone is exhilarated on stage and off!

The Guardian


The Instant Wit gang lit up the stage in the Bristol Old Vic Studio. They were extremely funny, on occasion hilarious, and were very clever and skilful with their improvised comedy sketches.”

Bristol Post


“The Shakespeare sketch set in a customs line and the opera version of JR Hartley’s TV advert

brought tears to my eyes and will remain a fond memory for some time to come…a thoroughly enjoyable evening.”
