THE GRAND JAM is a complimentary (that's a fancy word for 'FREE!')  evening of improvisational play in the tone of ‘WE’RE ALL FRIENDS HERE’ — an open invitation to join Grand Stretch Players and our improv friends on WEDNESDAY EVENINGS, as weekly as possible at Chaplins Bar:


  • FINDING OUR FEET with intimate audiences 
  • SINKING OUR TEETH into our improv playbook 
  • THROWING THREE SHEETS TO THE WIND; trying our hands at new games, chancing our arms with new formats, taking risks with our form, and experimenting with style

GET YOUR TICKETS:

Although ADMISSION IS FREE, due to a strictly limited venue capacity complimentary tickets must be booked online in advance. Donations are welcome on the night.

WHAT TO EXPECT

7:45PM — OUR IMPROV JAM

INCLUSIVE. RELAXED. SUPPORTIVE. FUN.


Newcomers, long-timers, dab-handers and absolute chancers alike are invited to toss their names into the Director's hat and be called upon to join us in playing some of our favourite improv games and show formats under the loving care and guidance of your side-coaching host Darren Yorke.


PLEASE NOTE – OUR IMPROV JAM is an opportunity to play. It's not an obligation to play. You are most welcome to enjoy the jam from the comfort of your cosy little table, and you can rest assured knowing we love and appreciate you for being a member of our lovely audience.

9PM — OUR SPECIAL FEATURE

WE'RE ALL FRIENDS HERE.


We are simply in awe of our improv friends, and it is our genuine, bona fide privilage to be able too make a fuss of them at THE GRAND JAM. The improv scene in Dublin is truly blossoming, and we're proud to make a feature of the talents and humbled camaraderie that make our community unique. 


ALSO – you'll either find us supporting or playing with our improv friends every week at The Tightrope Home to 25+ improv troupes:


9.30PM — OUR SHOWCASE

IT'S ALL TO PLAY FOR! (LET US PLAY!)


We're forever adding show formats and games to our IMPROV Playbook — some of which are of our own device; others of which we have learned from our improv friends around the world. Our Grand Stretch Players showcases at THE GRAND JAM are opportunities to explore, fail, learn and grow in play, and to develop shows to full production at an exceptionally high standard.
