December improv shows in Singapore

A note before we dive into a new month’s worth of improv shows, this monthly improv show round-up is brought to you lovingly by YQ of The Modern Schemers.

3 December: Talk Cock Sing Song by ASAP Improv

Improv Show in Singapore ASAP

Where: #02-05 Aliwal Arts Centre
When: 7:30 to 8:30pm
Price: $15 onwards
Facebook event page |
Tickets

The Song family would like you to think that they are an average Singapore family. I mean, they only have 3 cars and a modest terrace house that’s about 5000 square feet in size. A far cry from the posh folks who live in your 15000 square feet Good Class Bungalows.

Setting an example as prominent community leaders (and also because Mr Song owes his politician friend a favour for George’s letter of recommendation), join Mr and Mrs Song and their two Anglo-Chinese School-educated sons Frederick and George as they take part in a government-commissioned game show where they’ll be playing games (musical or otherwise) not unlike the ones on Whose Line Is It Anyway.

Based off your suggestions, they’ll have to come up with original songs and create never-before-seen sketches on the spot. Which shouldn’t be a problem since putting on an act in front of strangers is a daily affair.

So laugh along with them (or at them, although the Mrs will have you know it’s unbecoming for learned folk to laugh inappropriately) and host cum maestro Joel Chua as they talk cock, sing song, and maybe play mahjong for your entertainment in this entirely improvised and unscripted show of epic proportions.

Be an early bird an save 25% of the standard ticket price. Early bird sales end 28th November 2359hrs.

Improv Show in Singapore ASAP

Where: #02-05 Aliwal Arts Centre
When: 7:30 to 8:30pm
Price: $15 onwards
Facebook event page |  
Tickets

The Song family would like you to think that they are an average Singapore family. I mean, they only have 3 cars and a modest terrace house that’s about 5000 square feet in size. A far cry from the posh folks who live in your 15000 square feet Good Class Bungalows.

Setting an example as prominent community leaders (and also because Mr Song owes his politician friend a favour for George’s letter of recommendation), join Mr and Mrs Song and their two Anglo-Chinese School-educated sons Frederick and George as they take part in a government-commissioned game show where they’ll be playing games (musical or otherwise) not unlike the ones on Whose Line Is It Anyway.

Based off your suggestions, they’ll have to come up with original songs and create never-before-seen sketches on the spot. Which shouldn’t be a problem since putting on an act in front of strangers is a daily affair.

So laugh along with them (or at them, although the Mrs will have you know it’s unbecoming for learned folk to laugh inappropriately) and host cum maestro Joel Chua as they talk cock, sing song, and maybe play mahjong for your entertainment in this entirely improvised and unscripted show of epic proportions.

Be an early bird an save 25% of the standard ticket price. Early bird sales end 28th November 2359hrs.

Some secrets, we’ll take to our graves. Secrets so BIG they’ll freak our friends, alienate our lovers, and scare our pets. These are the kinda secrets we need from YOU to power the funniest improvised comedy evening you’ve ever seen.

It works like this: ANONYMOUSLY share your most unbelievable secrets with us. Then watch us weave them into comedic gold.

It doesn’t matter if you’re secretly in love with your MP or if you’re a chemistry teacher secretly dealing meth, as long as it’s juicy, we find the funny. And trust us… it’s going to be a whole lot of funny.

So join us for a wild one-night-stand of high-octane improv comedy, courtesy of the most epic secrets you dare to spill.


3 September: ASAP Presents “I am Brother Hand 3”, an improvised reality singing competition. [Tickets]

Improv in Singapore

Where: Word Forward
When: 7.30pm-8.30pm
Book tickets | RSVP on Facebook

After two successful sold-out shows, ASAP is back with the third season of their improvised reality singing competition “I Am Brother Hand”!

That’s more original never-before-heard songs inspired by you the audience, more unscripted never-before-seen scenes, and more wacky somewhat bilingual (we perform primarily English but might throw in some Mandarin and/or dialect) fun with the ASAP crew.

To get a foot in the music industry, many aspiring artistes go through the intense pressure of a reality singing competition. But following a reality show through from audition to finals takes up a lot of time, so we’ve condensed the good parts into a 1-hour improvised extravaganza.

We’re doing the exact same thing. Except our songs are improvised, our contestant backstories are made-up on the spot, we aren’t broadcasted on any networks, and at the end of it all instead of a recording contract or a ton of money, we take home only the satisfaction of audience applause (this is not said to sound noble, we really don’t have money to give away. Or money in general).

For a 25% discount off the standard price, be an early bird and get your ticket before the 29th of August (Tuesday) 2359 hours.

Brother Hand sees you, and wants to please you.


9 September: The Improv Company’s The Company Players Presents: SURVIVORPROV

improv in singapore the improv company survivorprov

Where: 62B South Bridge Road
When: 8:00 PM – 9:30 PM
Facebook RSVP | Get Tickets
$15 online

In regular improv shows, the improvisers’ mission is to support and make each other look good. In this show, however, we have a different mission.

To give you, the audience, a one-of-a-kind improv experience, The Company Players will bravely step into the battle arena deep down in the heart of one of the most unforgiving places in Singapore- the stage of The Improv Den.

This is an improvised social experiment unlike any other. Improvisers will be left onstage to fend for themselves and will be forced to work together to create mind-blowing improv scenes while battling the elements, and each other. Audience members will possess crucial powers unimaginable that will shake the course of the game at any moment. Improvisers must learn to create alliances, trust one another, and deceive other players if needed, or they will be voted off their team. In the end, only one will remain to claim the title of The Improv Company’s Sole Survivor.

This is SURVIVORPROV (Out-Yes, Out-And, Outlaugh)!!!

Details to come…

Where: Toa Payoh Central Community Club Theatrette
When:16th Sept, 7:30pm + 17th Sept, 3pm
Price: $20
Tickets

An old man tottering in the train while seats remain occupied. A community bike with a missing wheel–or two. People elbowing their way into the bus.

What kind of society are we enabling with our sense of entitlement? How do we build a community we’d be proud to live in; one in which we’d trust our neighbours to look out for us? What would a community of civic conscious people look like — and will we get there?

Join Tapestry Playback Theatre in a conversation on what it takes for us to become a more caring and considerate community. Share your stories about civic conscious (or not!) acts and people in our community.

Playback Theatre is an improvisational form of community theatre. The audience shares real moments from their lives and watch the performers play it back, with elements of cloth, movement, music, and spoken word.

The Kok family is your average heartland household. So average and representative of Singapore society that they’ve been arrowed, I mean SELECTED, by their local grassroots leader to take part in a government-commissioned game show where they’ll be playing games (musical or otherwise) like the ones on Whose Line Is It Anyway.

Based off your suggestions, they’ll have to come up with original songs and create never-before-seen sketches on the spot. That’s right. Make them work for their GST U-Save Vouchers.

So laugh along with them (or at them) and host cum maestro Joel Chua as they talk cock, sing song, and maybe play mahjong for your entertainment in this entirely improvised and unscripted show of epic proportions.
