“Full of infectious energy…It’s ridiculous, and it’s ridiculously funny.” (Edfringereview)

Criminally Untrue is a completely improvised true crime documentary, based entirely on your suggestions. Help a team of improvisers create a crime that never happened. Complete with inexpert interviews, unstructured reconstructions and fabricated evidence. Not a N*tfl*x original.

“Criminally Untrue is the perfect improvised comedy for improv-phobes. Spinning the cliches of true crime documentary to create a new hilarious narrative each time, it’s a show you could happily see again.” (The Recs 2022)
