All of our shows are completely improvised and based on audience suggestions. Since our very first outing at the Brighton Festival in 2004, we have performed hundreds of shows around the world from comedic sketches based on audience stories through to our flagship show, Happily Never After – a full musical theatrical experience based on the works on Tim Burton.
See our upcoming shows below.
One of the best improvised shows out there, and you get the feeling that any of these actors could easily hold their own with the likes of Merton, Frost and Jupitus... a must see.
Sometimes inspired, always great, occasionally laceratingly funny, and at times deeply affecting.
The Maydays are England's vanguard of long-form improvisation.
The Maydays are an improv ensemble firmly committed to artistic growth and challenge unwilling to settle for simply being awesome. It makes them exciting to watch and a pleasure to work with.
They're funny, confident, imaginative, charming and not afraid of making themselves look ridiculous. They will turn your secrets and stories into something to make you laugh your socks off. Go see them if you can.
First class improv-comedy.
There is no doubt The Maydays are a reputable and extremely talented group, the task they undertake to provide on the spot entertainment is no small feat and is most definitely achieved through astonishing ease and enthusiasm.
