Last minute decision to buy tickets for this show. Boy do I wish I had read the reviews beforehand. I don’t want to be too negative but I just really really didn’t enjoy this show. For an improv show it was very unfunny, not clever and felt rehearsed. They missed the potential for so many jokes but it felt like they didn’t bounce off each other very well. Their is a live band on stage and I would’ve thought they’d even smile now and again but they looked how I felt watching the show. Sorry but I wouldn’t recommend the show. If you want to see a great improv group and be entertained go see BABY WANTS CANDY they’re in a different league.

A cast of predominantly strong singers, (the wee Northern Irish lady in particular is going somewhere), and it seems like they work & sing well together.

However, the whole premise of this show is to take an audience suggestion and turn it into a musical. Given ‘Terminator 2’ to play with, you would think this a very fertile ground with easy targets. Unfortunately, being (a) millennials and (b) all girls, none of them had seen the film, nor, it seemed, any Terminator films. What followed was startlingly irrelevant pretty much throughout. It felt like they had some stock songs they adapt and change a few words for each performance. They did manage a couple of genuinely showstopping numbers, so you can see how they imagined they thought they were going to pull this off, but mostly it was repetition and irrelevancy as they floundered to get out.

I’d like to imagine I just caught them on a bad day, but I can’t see how this ever works, unless the audience happen to suggest something they have all seen. The way they have structured this, the audience's reach will always be far bigger than the cast’s grasp. I had imagined it was based on Netflix and they’d all been watching all the big shows for the last few months. Sorry guys, but Improv is just harder than this.

Hats off to audience member Jamie, who, challenged repeatedly to boil Terminator 2: Judgement Day down to one single, simple, overwhelmingly positive message, said: ‘Trust your mum’. Superb. Shame he wasn’t on stage.

The team work hard, and hats off to the musicians that work with them as its a real impressive graft. However the voices grate after a while and although improv is a real talent, the premise of doing 1 film for the whole hour was painful, would of been better doing 3x 20min sketches to make it more palatable. This was unfortunately memorable for the wrong reasons for us.

I had high expectations from this troop that were completely let down.

They attempted "Birdbox" - most of the cast forgot that the characters are supposed to be blindfolded during the story. The story made very little sense. The songs were weak and the harmonies were very bad. They rushed the last 5 minutes to wrap the non-existent story up.

Strong singing from a popular theatre school but the Saturday show was very repetitive with really only one subject - the favourite sister. Needs much more understanding of the hard work of improv.

I have to say I agree with Jackie, this is the only show so far this trip that we have walked out of (we were sitting at the back so it didn't disrupt the show). It's basically not improv - they clearly have a show that they have rehearsed, I won't comment on their abilities.

#Notflix Very talented performers & band. Excellent show .All actors had me laughing throughout the show. Highly recommended.

We’ve watched quite a lot of Improv at the Fringe and I would say today’s show was not one of the best we have seen. They are undoubtedly an incredibly talented group of performers but I just felt the songs today were very repetitive and it felt like the show wasn’t really going anywhere until the last 5 minutes. They didn’t use the plot that they had been given by the audience in an imaginative way. Maybe we just saw them on a slightly dodgy day.

Since their explosive debut a few years ago, Waiting For The Call Improv (WTFC) and their signature show, Notflix, have been tipped as rising stars. To say now that they are still rising stars is not to begrudge them the success they’ve had, but to suggest that the show is...
