Not the improverts. They did two kinds of shows last year. One was the usual short form improvised stuff. Short games, taking suggestions from the audience. Like the improverts at bedlam do. This was good. Seeing Love pretend to be a plumber in the desert was hilarious. The other was more long form ...

12 hours of comedy in august ....

The Oxford Imps, who did a couple of shows last year, want to do a 12 hour marathon of improvised comedy. Could be very surreal towards the end ..... The Hall is already booked, but how do people feel about having them in the cafe 11am to 11pm one day?

when I was at uni, I heard a story about some people messing around with a laser. Someone else walked into the room, and as he said later "the scariest thing in my whole life was the sound of my own eye bursting."

well, obviously I don't but I'm far to tired to argue the point now. basically, as with most things, i generally think its far to complicated to be explained so simply.

where to get Legal Photographs

So, some people here just take Photographs from any old place online when illustrating stuff. I really don't think we should be doing that - as an artist organisation, we should be doing what we can to support artists - and not stealing their work would be a good start. So, I'm starting a thread wit...
