The Crew is a collection of comics, actors and other talented types with very vivid imaginations and the amazing ability to create stories full of drama, action and comedy from a single-word suggestion from the audience. Masters of improvisation, The Crew are to able create a great scene in 10 seconds or keep it going for 30 minutes, delighting the audience with layered and hilarious tales, songs or quick-fire impro games.
The troupe started performing together at The Comic’s Lounge one Sunday evening during the 2001 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, with no name and no real idea as to what they were going to do. However, they soon realised they had something special - and so did their audiences, which steadily grew as word Impro Sundae got around. Impro Sundae is now the longest-running and most successful weekly improv comedy night in Australia, dazzling thousands of punters since its inception.
