Improvisers launch a 'mullet' night

Because it's short form at the front, long at the back

The team behind improv show ComedySportz are to launch a new night called Improv Mullet – because it is short-form in the front, long-form in the back.

Its first half has quick games like those featured on Whose Line Is It Anyway?, while the second will involved longer improvised narratives and recurring characters. 

'The first half is going to be fast paced, supercharged laughs and the second half could be anything from an improvised farce to an improvised musical,' says improviser Sean Mason.

'We want to do a show that showcases the many different styles of improv out there but is still something an audience can grasp if they're only ever seen something like Whose Line?'

The monthly show kicks off at Manchester's TriBeCa on  September 21.

Fellow improviser Kate McCabe said the venue 'is building a diverse audience and truly supports new works... I think it's going to be an ace place to gig. '

ComedySportz has been performing family-friendly improv for 15 yeas, but the  new show is aimed at adults.
