The Oxford Imps have toured the UK, Europe, the USA and South Africa. They have trained Edinburgh Comedy Award nominees, stars of the West End and even QI Elves.

Oxford Imps one of the highlights of my Fringe experience. Great showmanship and energy from the word ‘GO’. They kept the pace with a variety of highly entertaining sketches with skilful management of audience volunteers. Particularly enjoyed the musical elements of the Imps’ set, proving their pitch is as sharp as their wit. Highly, HIGHLY recommend.

Oxford Imps is a brilliant, high energy, funny and whipsmart improv show. Definitely family friendly the young performers specialise in quick fire improv sketches that make quick work of the afternoon hour slot. *****

If you are hoping to spot the next Stephen Fry, Tony Slattery or Hugh Laurie, you might want to give this show a miss - the worst Oxford Imps I've seen in years. A handful of warm up exercises cobbled into a show it seemed.
Not so long ago the finest performers would have been handpicked to go to Edinburgh. This show seemed to have rounded up whoever was available. But at least there were no shortage of parents and friends to over-whoop in the extremely hot and stuffy room.
