Story Kitchen Impro! Hungry for hilarity? This team will be cooking up a sumptuous feast of shortform scenes that'll leave a sweet taste in your mouth.

Plus YOU, if you fancy the chance to be fabulous in our legendary two-person scenes and jams.

The RH Experience! Genuine improv superstars, The RH Experience make what is predicted to be a triumphant return to the DDG stage; the very same stage where one member of the team once stripped down to his pants in the pursuit of comedy. We can't guarantee that this will happen again, but we can't absolutely guarantee that it won't. 

PLUS, as always, there will be our glorious audience jams: Two-person scenes! More people montages! The all-important bucket! You!

The Parentheticals! Possibly not London's biggest improv team any longer, but big enough to take us on a magical, improvised quest for an objective of your choice. Expect unusual people AND talking animals.

Ripcord! Ripcord perform excellent, freeform improv without a net but WITH a parachute. They're so good, you'll want to kiss them. But you won't because you're a good person and that kind of behaviour would be inappropriate.

Amorphous Horse! A group of future recent Monkey Toast Level 3 graduates will be galloping right into our improv hearts.  

Impetus!  "Just a comedy improv group and nothing more"? A crack commando unit sent to prison for a crime they didn't commit, surviving as soldiers to fortune? Something in between (but leaning strongly towards the first one)? There's only one way to be sure*.
