About EIIF Gala: Showstopper The Improvised Musical plus Stu and Garry Improv Show

Direct from the West End, the Edinburgh International Improv Festival (EIIF) presents the award-winning Showstopper: The Improvised Musical launching the 2020 festival gala opening.

A rip-roaring success since the show started in 2008, with eleven sell-out years at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, two West End runs, an Olivier award and a BBC Radio 4 series.

Showstoppers need your help! They are on a deadline to write a new musical. The audience shouts out suggestions of a setting, musical styles and a title and they are off, creating a brand new musical in front of your eyes, complete with hilarious characters, dance routines, beautiful songs, epic storylines all sprinkled with the pizazz of a Broadway show!

Every night is a premiere, come on down and help create the next hit musical!

Local Edinburgh favourites Stu & Garry will be supporting.

Stu & Garry provide roaring comedy that will have you crippled with laughter. Stu Murphy and Garry Dobson are masters of their art, working flawlessly together with razor-sharp wit and quick imagination that will knock your socks off.

Ticket includes a free drink on entry!

After a successful launch in 2019 the Edinburgh International Improv Festival is back in 2020 with an even bigger and better line up! 27 Feb - 01 Mar 2020.

Across four days over 75 performers from across the globe will amaze with their spontaneity, quick wit and ability to make you laugh your socks off. Scenes, sketches, songs and stories will be made up on the spot from audience suggestions.

World class improv teachers will also be delivering a full curriculum of classes throughout the festival.
