Tales from the Greek Games – 50 performers, 50 hours, 25 episodes

‘Like nothing you’ve ever seen before’ Time Out

This event takes place at Hoxton Hall, 130 Hoxton Street, N1 6SH

An entirely improvised comedy soap opera set in Ancient Greece during the 2012 BC games. The fifth annual 50-hour London Improvathon features some of the best improvisers from the UK, Ireland, America, Australia, Canada, India, Norway, Greece and Holland in a hilarious celebration of all things spontaneous. Performed round the clock for 50hrs straight, this is an extraordinary and euphoric ensemble performance.

Pop in any time you like, day or night. Come in costume if you wish! Each episode starts with a reminder of what has happened so you won’t miss anything!

So whether you are looking for a bit of Friday evening comedy, a perfect continuation for your night out or a Sunday family outing, come join us whatever time you feel like! And don’t miss the final few episodes where the whole extravaganza comes to its fantastic finale.

We provide music, tea & coffee, snacks and an all night bar throughout the Improvathon so you can stay for the entire 50hrs if you want!

Hoxton Hall is located at 130 Hoxton Street, N1 6SH, and just a short walk from Old Street (10-15 mins) and Liverpool Street (20 mins). It is 2 minutes walk from the new Hoxton overground station and 5 minutes from the Shoreditch station, both on the newly opened East London line.

‘It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before. It’s made up on the spot: a hilarious 50hr non-stop soap opera. Early morning joggers and late-night clubbers unite!’
