The best ad-lib ensemble in the UK 
Evening Standard

The troupe more than lives up to its hallowed reputation... the livewire skill underpinning all that wanton spontaneity quite takes your breath away
The Daily Telegraph

A bottomless supply of surreal sketches, dramatic vignettes and almost tuneful operettas... a must for anyone with a pulse and a sense of humour!

They're back! For the 20th year running, the Comedy Store Players take over the iconic Globe stage with only the faintest idea of where the night will take them and their willing audience.

With suggestions from the crowd, this talented troupe of six will fill the Globe with Shakespeare-inspired improv and the sound of laughter. The Players finish the show with a six-person improvised Shakespeare play, with a title suggested by the audience.

The Comedy Store Players are always a highlight of the summer season and the show always sells quickly, so buy your tickets today!
