"Their comedy was smart when it needed to be, but also inappropriate when necessary, striking a balance that made you forget they were performing in their second or even third language."
Reykjavík Grapevine's critique of Improv Iceland: https://grapevine.is/news/2016/06/20/improvising-in-your-second-language/?platform=hootsuite
Improv Iceland has had a raging success this winter, selling out to all of their 16 shows and being nominated to the Icelandic Theater Awards, Gríman, as fresh breeze of the year. In June they performed for the second year in a row at The Del Close Marathon in New York.
The group has biweekly shows in English this summer in Húrra on Tuesday nights. Everything is improvised and made up on the spot, all jokes, characters and songs (yup, we even improvise musicals).
This Saturday Improv Iceland will have a show in Rif. Nobody knows what it is going to be about, but we know it's going to be hilarious. See you there.
