The beloved Rubber Ducky's visit to Hong Kong will sadly come to an end on June 9. So we dedicate our June 7 comedy improvisation show to the Ducky. We'll perform totally improvised, unscripted scenes based on suggestions from you, the audience. Honest! Quack quack. In English; not suitable for children. Friday June 7, 9pm at the TakeOut Comedy Club, basement of 34 Elgin Street, SoHo. $150. Reservations and enquiries to Jami Gong: 6220 4436 or email jami [at] takeoutcomedy [dot] com
People's Liberation Improv
Comedy improvisation based on suggestions from YOU, the audience! YOU SAY IT, WE PLAY IT!
People's Liberation Improv is Hong Kong's first, longest-lasting, biggest and only regularly performing English-language improv troupe. We're based at the TakeOut Comedy Club HK.
We usually perform on the first Friday of the month.
What Audience-members Say About PLI
“That was a great performance last night. I’m not a comedy expert, but the troupe seems to be in really good form now - good interaction with audience and among yourselves. The spontaneous response and flow of very funny ideas made it much fun for all. Bravo!”
- an audience-member at our July 1, 2011 show
“My friends and I enjoyed the Christmas improv show so much, we're making this a regular gathering!”
- Dina Narain, about the December 2008 show
“GREAT show on Friday night. I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time.”
- Lesley Stewart, about the May 2012 show
“...all the audience just kept laughing all the time”
- from a review of our ImprovMania show, September 13, 2012, on the hkELD website
And our favourite:
“...could Hong Kong performers move their hips less because their gestures do not improve the quality of comedy performances, are not entirely decent, and serve no purpose.”
- from an audience-member, November 2010
Improv Workshops and Open Rehearsals
Curious about how we do what we do? Keen to have a go at improv? Or maybe you're an experienced improv performer, looking for a troupe to play with?
We occasionally hold improv open rehearsals (one informal evening) or workshops (one intensive day or a five-week course). Join us in some warm-up exercises, learn some improv games and develop your improv skills. All in English. No improv experience required.
If you're interested and you show definite talent, potential and commitment, we might invite you to play some games with us in an upcoming show, and maybe even eventually to become a member of PLI.
