Instant Soop! is comedy genius

There's not a huge amount of improvised comedy around these days, with TV shows like Mock the Week largely being made up of circuit veterans who simply squeeze their routines into whatever situation comes up that particular week.

Instant Soop! is a show that aims to rectify this error. This is must-watch material for those who long for the days of Whose Line Is It Anyway?, with brilliant comedy created before your very eyes by a troupe of talented performers.

You can expect a classic improvisation show, complete with genial host, musicians and an epic blend of high energy sketches.

Indeed, if possible, you'll want to go multiple times because the material is completely different each time around, depending on the contributions dished out by the lucky audience members who get chosen.

One highly ambitious sketch involves taking the life of an attendee and his or her family, through the medium of improvisation.

Declared the Best Comedy Award Winners by The Guide Awards 2012 and with accolades ringing in from various publications and writers, Instant Soop! is not without its endorsers.

"This is improvisation at its best," proclaimed Remote Goat, while The News described the act as, "at times genius and sometimes just plain silly".

Featuring sketches that range from the brilliantly irrelevant to the downright bizarre, Instant Soop! is guaranteed to have you laughing in the aisle by the end, no matter your taste in comedy.

It's happening at the Baptist Church Hall in Ventnor as part of the Isle of Arts Festival and potential attendees are advised to book their tickets as soon as possible if they don't want to be disappointed.

Be sure to sort out your transport at the same time, including the ferry to the island.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801707928-ADNFCR
