Giant Dwarf has moved to 280 Cleveland St

Improv Theatre Sydney presents:

Improv Theatre Sydney and a couple of guests who are smarter than we are break down news and current events of the day for you, and then respin it into comedy improv sketches and silliness. Hot tip: there will probably be something on COVID (and hopefully there’ll be other news too!).

Sitting down with host Cale Bain this month are regular special guests news & comedy smarties Ange Lavoipierre (The Signal, ABC News) and Alex Lee (SBS’s The Feed, Dragon Friends, A Rational Fear, Hungry Beast).




Please do not attend if you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms, have travelled overseas within the last 14 days or have been in direct or indirect contact with a suspected or confirmed case of Covid-19.

Patrons are required to provide their name and contact details upon arrival as well as have their temperature taken with a remote thermometer. If your temperature reads above 38 C you will not be permitted entry for the safety of all patrons.

Shows will be seated and limited to 30 per sitting, allowing for physical distancing.
