Starship Improvise

Starship Improvise is a collective of South Africa’s freshest, funniest and most talented improvisers, doing “Whose Line is it Anyway?” style short form improv. It’s all made up on the spot using suggestions from the audience and is always hilariously funny. Until now, improvised comedy was a relatively unknown entity in South African entertainment, Starship Improvise aims to bring it into the    mainstream, proving that “local is lekker”. 

After searching the galaxy for many light years, Starship Improvise has enlisted some of the  greatest, sharpest comical minds in the country to give you a comedy experience to remember, including Chris  Forrest, Bevan Cullinan, Monique Nortje, Hannes Brummer, Melt Sieberhagen, Malcolm Ferreira, Alyn Adams, Vittorio Leonardi, Ryan Whittal, Warren Robertson and the NEW RECRUITS Robby Collins, Mpho Popps, Richeleau Benoir and Mojak Lehoko who have played to audiences countrywide, as well as on TV as a highlight on two successful seasons of Mzanzi Magic’s LOL show. 

Already delighting crowds at sell out shows at venues in Norwood, Fourways, Randburg as well as Sandton Theatre on the Square, Theatre of Marcellus at Emperors Casino and the Heavyweight Comedy Jam, Starship Improvise has gained a reputation as being “the best of the best” in South African improv and looks set to continue taking the country by storm.
