The Sparrow Men

The Sparrow Men

Marcus and Andy are going to take you on an improvised adventure if you like it or not. It's going to be fun, sweaty and totally made up. Using your audience suggestion, they will create a never-to-be-repeated show. Soy sauce, marbles, novelty lamps, small wooden sculptures of horses. Anything could happen. Come and see for yourself.

Marcus and Andy have both trained at the world famous iO Theatre in Chicago, where the likes of Mike Myers, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler studied and performed. They perform weekly with the only Australian Chicago-styled improvised theatre company in Melbourne (The Improv Conspiracy).

This show is unlike anything you've seen before, there are absolutely no rules or structures and anything can happen (yes, really anything). The show has been described as "Sir, please leave now, this isn't a restroom".

Bring yourself, comfortable pants, a boyfriend/wife/husband/girlfriend/auntie to 5 Carson Pl, Melbourne VIC, think of a suggestion and get ready to laugh. Marcus and Andy can't wait to see you there.
