Scotland's only full-time improv troupe:
The Stand Players - combine their unique and successful style of comedy with games, new formats and special guest performers ...in short, it's improv improved. Established audience favourites such as Half Life (a one minute scene repeated again in 30 seconds, then 15 seconds, then 7, 3 and finally 1 second), will be joined by skewed views of up-to-the-minute news, even more opportunities for audience interaction, and much more.
