Criminal

An anarchic improvised murder mystery that's proper funny.

Join a line-up of wonderful comedy improvisers as they solve a murder in front of your eyes.

Tonight the ghastly crime that needs investigating is the murder of Sydney Clancy. Brushing the rotten teeth of mystery, our detective must administer the painful and necessary root canal of justice.

Produced and hosted by Ralph Jones and Joel Gatehouse, Criminal is an improv gig that puts the ‘horrible crime’ back into ‘great comedy night’.
