The Latecomers, who will be putting on an improv show a la Whose Line Is It Anyway?, full of jokes, songs and you guessed it, improvised humor!

20 January: Schemers Improv Nights #11
Strap yourself in for a night of riotous, on-the-spot comedy with The Modern Schemers!
On the 20th of January, rock up at HCAC for an off-the-rails evening of kickass improv with Singapore’s longest-running improv team. They’ll transmogrify your suggestions into wild & weird stories, made just for you!
You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll have a great night. All for just $10.
27 January: ASAP Presents “Chicken Soap for the Soul 3”, an improvised soap opera
It’s back. The passion. The angst. The tears. ASAP is bringing back one of their most critically acclaimed shows, Chicken Soap for the Soul.
And like how the third Lord of the Rings movie ‘Return of the King’ won an Oscar for best picture, we believe that this third iteration will be their pièce de résistance. A melodramatic soap opera so riveting, so emotionally charged that you’ll feel it in every fibre of your being.
Based on whatever suggestion theyget from whichever audience member, let Singapore’s leading improv group take you on an adventure through the bowels of daytime television as we improvise a full episode of the most epic soap opera ever, based on a title provided by you the audience.
Get 25% off Standard ticket prices if you buy Early Bird tickets before the 23rd of January 2018, 11.59pm.
Let’s get soapy together.
27 January: The Improv Company: The Company Players Present 2 Asss 2 Cat
What happens when you need to mail an illegal lamp? How about the trials and tribulations that affect the residents of the Child Hood? Come and see all these questions (and more!) be answered in a set of wacky scenes inspired just by a few words provided by you.
Returning for their first show of the year, The Company Players present : 2 Assss 2 Cat, an homage to the ASSSSCAT format so beloved by the residents of New York’s UCB Theatre. You give us a few words, we give you a bunch of stories, all made up on the spot.
Even we don’t know where the night is going – come find out with us!

A one of its kind open mic night for improv and stand-up comedy!
If you’ve been dying to get back on stage and dust off your improv or comedy muscles, this is the perfect opportunity for you! The Latecomers welcome all improvisers and stand-up comedians to come together to do their thang.
How it works:
~10 minute set for improv (4-5 troupes)
~5 minute set for standup (3 minutes if it’s your first open mic) [4-5 standup comics]
Sign up here with a group or as an individual improviser/comedian and we’ll put you in an ad-hoc perfoming group.
Lists will be finalized and sent out before the show.
FREE to watch! Come support the growing improv scene and mingle with other improvisers and comedians in a non-threatening environment.
We’ve got more plans in the works for these open mic nights and hopefully some F&B options, BYOB in the meantime for that mid-week stress buster.
