As well as our original improv show we also have bespoke shows, workshops and the unique audience pleaser DMJ Improv. In addition to regular improv gigs we've played family friendly festivals, political gatherings and late night post watershed shenanigans. If you have a particular theme in mind, we're happy to explore and explode it for you!
Derek's Mojo impro bingo - the all new concept show
Here at DMJ headquarters we've been working on our new concept show - Impro Bingo! We've been rolling it out at gigs across town, taking feedback and honing the format to create a fully immersive experience. Whilst watching Mo and Jo go on one of their ill-advised adventures we invite the audience to look out for the little improv games they sneak in along the way.
With bingo cards at the ready eager pretenders vie to tick off one line then two lines and finally a full house to be crowned the evening's ultimate Bingo Boss. Prizes, stories, a crown and a sceptre. A full evening's entertainment rolled into one.
But don't just take out word for it - here's what the audience think...
BUT HOW DOES IT WORK?
THE GAME OF STORY- TELLING WORKSHOP
Derek's MoJo has always been about story-telling where the narrative is key. When it comes to linear adventures though, we very much ascribe to the Tom Baker as Dr Who ethos: 'A straight line may be the shortest distance between two points, but it is by no means the most interesting'.
In our workshop we share the improvisation games we use to build the foundations of a universe, develop a narrative and progress as a team through that world. We explore how improvisation allows the team to cultivate and follow different tangents within a narrative, and the evolution of options for conclusion and resolution.
Playing to the strength and abilities of the participants, we customise the workshops to fit and include all.
