The Park (US)

A well-rehearsed and efficient mess.

The Park is Jaymie and Liam, a well-rehearsed and efficient mess. The Park experiments with that which is on the other side of the improv “rules,” taking shows to their extremes, while simultaneously working to create art that is widely palatable and personally meaningful. The Park is physical, vaudevillian, abstract, and entertainingly dumb.

Liam is a data analyst from San Francisco and Jaymie is an entertainment lawyer from Los Angeles. Each are obsessed with and consumed by comedy and improv and have been training and performing for more than a decade. Their duo, The Park, started out as an experiment to see what would happen if they broke all the improv rules. It turns out that the rules mean very little and improv is more fun, playful, and exciting without them. The Park regularly puts their experiment on stage to the delight and horror of its audience.

Somewhat Theatre (UK)

This is Not a Play

What do you call a fish with no eyes?

What makes a play a play? What is the difference between a play and an improv set? What do you call a fish with no eyes? A very serious, not at all silly exploration of the nature of theatre and other grand-minded ideas. We ask the audience what makes a play a play, then play that play. Playfully.

Somewhat Theatre play with new approaches to improvising theatre, blending experimentation with downright silliness.

A supergroup of some of the finest improvisers in London today. Whether adapting your favourite stories into something new and remarkable or building an entire play from scratch, Somewhat Theatre are the very epitome of theatre. Somewhat.

WePolak (US/POL)

"WePolak are an absolute surreal joy to watch"

Meet WePolak, the dynamic duo merging Chicago's improv legend, Jeff Michalski, co-founder of The Second City ETC, with the veteran Polish improviser, Monika Ozdarska, boasting over 12 years of experience both on stage and in teaching.

Their unique journey began in the virtual realm during the pandemic, but it didn't take long for their chemistry to ignite into real-life magic. Their debut live performance at Chicago's Annoyance Theater marked the birth of something special.

WePolak thrives on the joy of playing together, creating a mesmerizing, long-form improv show that's nothing short of an artful mosaic. Their performance is a kaleidoscope of playful exploration, sprinkled with profound insights on relationships and even a dash of existential philosophy. It's all brought to life through their extraordinary improvisational prowess, a hallmark of true masters of the craft. Join WePolak on a journey where laughter, wisdom, and creative intimacy converge in a theatrical experience like no other.


"Their skill, their atmosphere, their chemistry all combined create a unique and colourful result. I was impressed by they way the changed from  comedy to political satire, to deeper scenes giving to the audience great variety. This show was not only entertaining, but also educational without becoming didactic at all. I promise you will have fun and after that you will have a lot of things to think about!"
- Maro Lesioti Rigakou, Greece

"Two masters turning pure feeling into theatre. WePolak are an absolute surreal joy to watch."
