Up The Antics Summer Party

This summer, Up The Antics bottle up the summer spirit and let it loose in a cool basement in Clifton. In a diversion from their usual “Antics Joke Show”, the summer party is a free entry event featuring some of the best improv groups that the Antics really want to perform with, but haven’t had the chance to.

What to expect:

  • Free entry to the Up The Antics Summer Party
  • Performances by top improv groups
  • Audience suggestions incorporated into performances
  • Pay-What-You-Decide event format
  • Cool basement venue in Clifton

Full Line-Up:

Up The Antics

Bristol-based Up The Antics (BBC Radio 4 Extra) take us down the rabbit hole of improvised sketch comedy. With the suggestion of a location, the antics will explore the characters and journeys taken to arrive there, with hilarious results.

“Brilliantly Witty” ★★★★★ Inter:Mission

“Up The Antics are guaranteed to deliver a laugh every minute” ★★★★ EdFringeReview

Pressure Cooker

The improvised restaurant show (From the cast of The Bish Bosh Bash and the creators of Tales of Adventure).

Step into our restaurant, where the experience is different every single night! Our performers take ingredients from the audience’s suggestions to create recipes for wacky, funny, and silly stories.

You’ll see how the front-of-house, back-of-house, and customers deal with wildly unpredictable situations and character tales, serving up all-you-can-eat laughs.

As our Head Chef always says… “If you can’t handle the heat, you won’t make an omelette”.

Secrets From The Sixth Floor

Join us for a show where all of the characters work or live on the ‘sixth floor’ of a city high rise. Secrets are told, secrets unfold, secrets implode.

Bristol Longform Takeover Team

Bristol Longform Comedy put together a crack team of improvisers to bring some longform hilariousness to the summer party!

This is a Pay-What-You-Decide event, so please feel free to book a "free" ticket and then pay on the night how much you decide.
