PREVIEW: First ever ‘Pride Improv Festival’ for London

Zeal is the first ever improv festival to officially run as part of Pride In London!

Zeal, a week-long event will take part in venues across the city from July 1-7, offering a diverse mix of improvised entertainment to celebrate the LGBT+ communities.

Featuring improvised games, comedy, theatre, musicals, drag acts, stand-up and cabaret from both queer improvisers and those who support the community, the festival will showcase a mix of established acts, fresh young talent and brand new teams, formed especially for this year’s event!

There will also be opportunities for the audience to get up on stage and give it a go in friendly and supportive jam sessions, as well as chances to learn the basics of improv and improve existing skills through the Zeal workshops.

Taking place in collaboration with seven improv schools across London, the festival is an opportunity to see bold, exciting and unique shows that will never be seen again!

Acts are made up on the spot and every show and every night will be completely different!

Acts include Music Box, who perform an entire improvised musical based on words from the audience, regular Proud Cabaret host Luke Meredith, and improv duo Breaking & Entering, as well as brand new drag king act The Bareback Kings, improvised songs and conversation from Phil Lunn Is… A Cabaret Singer, and The Lemonade Brigade, an all-gay improv team assembled especially for the festival!
