Up The Antics Summer Party

Saturday 30th July

Summer party

This summer, Up The Antics bottle up the summer spirit and let it loose on a cool basement in Clifton. In a diversion from their usual “Antics Joke Show”, summer party is a free entry event featuring some of the best improv groups that the Antics really want to perform with, but haven’t had the chance to. 


Bristol-based Up The Antics take us down the rabbit hole of improvised sketch comedy. With the suggestion of a location, the antics will explore the characters and journeys taken to arrive there, with hilarious results.

The Groundhogs – Performers and students from Bristol’s Longform improv community join forces to perform The Detour format; an exploration of all the possible ways that a single scene could have gone…but didn’t.


You walk into a play but none of the actors have learned their lines, because there are none. This show hasn’t been written yet.

A nightmare or a dream? Who’s to say? Up ahead there’s a sign. We take a turning through your imagination and arrive at your final destination: An improvised twist on The Twilight Zone.

Some of Bristol’s best improvisers create a brand-new episode of the classic science fiction show which inspired Black Mirror. Suitable for all levels of nerdiness and Twilight Zone knowledge!


The first graduate house team of legendary improv night Parent’s Basement take a location from the audience and proceed to take us on a journey through improvised sketch and character comedy.

Featuring performers from: This Is Your Musical, Up The Antics, and After Dusk: The Improvised Twilight Zone, Last Day on Earth have travelled all over the country with their chaotic, hilarious comedic style and consistently deliver premium laughter.
