The late sufferettesgreat Ken Campbell, who has inspired many of those participating in the London Jam, first created this anarchic event at Shakespeare’s Globe in 2005 at the request of Mark Rylance.

In THE KEN CAMPBELL CAPER COMPETITION we will be challenging teams of improvisers to show off their theatrical chops what will be a wild and hilarious evening of entertainment…

It will be the full GTI lineup – Dylan Emery, Phil Whelans and Charlottte Gittins, plus our guest player the amazing David Reed of the Penny Dreadfuls.

dnaysWe will be in the first heat at 6pm competing with Do Not Adjust Your Stage, who are a brilliantly energetic team whose trademark interlacing narrative shows have been entertaining audiences since 2010.

Then at 7:30pm the second heat will be The Suffrettes vs Bristol Improv Theatre.

The Suffrettes are from Toronto, Canada and are one of the featured groups in this year’s Jam, doing their own show on Thursday (click here for details). They won the Canadian Comedy Award for Best Improv Troupe two years in a row (2014 & 2015). They are fantastic.

Then at 9:15pm we have the grand final with whoever gets through.
