“TheatreSports™ people are such finely trained improvisational atheletes that no matter what you throw at them, they just bat it back.”
– Tom Gleisner, Thank God You’re Here
Our Performers and Teachers
Impro Australia is made up of a large group of performers and trainers. Our mainstage shows at the Enmore Theatre consists of performers ranging from veteran professionals to our new star recruits. Impro Australia’s training show at the Harold Park Hotel allows our recent graduates the opportunity to hone their skills and perform alongside more experienced ‘mentors’. Impro Australia also fosters new talent through its improvisation courses, and the TheatreSports™ Schools Challenge (TSC) which is held every year.
A strong, experienced team of professional performers and corporate educators lead IA’s Corporate Training business. Utilising the skills and knowledge gained over more than 30 years of improv/communication coaching and workshops, they have created a unique training style and program that is adaptable to the specific needs and objectives of any business.
IA has an alumnus of many famous faces, entertainers and presenters who have honed their skills on our stage playing TheatreSports™ during the course of their careers. Many of these now celebrities return to join us for our annual charity fundraising show called Celebrity TheatreSports™.
TheatreSports™ has been running in Sydney for over 30 years at the Belvoir St and Enmore Theatres. It’s helped launch the careers of many Australian comedians & personalities such as Andrew Denton, Shaun Micallef, Wil Anderson, Frank Woodley, Rob Carlton, Robyn Butler, Adam Spencer, Angus Sampson, Rebecca De Unamuno, Josh Lawson, Andrew O’Keefe, Jay Laga’aia and Julia Zemiro. IA’s alumni have starred in Thank God You’re Here (Daniel Cordeaux, Ed Kavalee, Nicola Parry), and appear in the Australian Whose Line is it Anyway? (Susie Youssef, Steen Raskopolous, Bridie Connell, Tom Walker). IA continues to develop new up-and-coming performers and is proud to have played a role in helping foster the talent of some of Australia’s top comedians.
