Scott Adsit is heading to the capital for a two nights of laughs.
Veteran of stateside improv scene and star of TV comedies including 30 Rock and Veep, Scott Adsit will perform two nights of improvised comedy at the Nursery Theatre, Broadgate on Friday 30th June and Saturday 1st July.
Scott has been acting and teaching for many years. He was a resident member of Second City’s Mainstage and ETC companies and won Chicago’s Joseph Jefferson Best Actor Award for his work there. He still improvises constantly at the Upright Citizens Brigade in Manhattan while performing and teaching around the world.
Scott has also appeared in many television shows, most notably playing producer Pete Hornberger on NBC’s Emmy Award-winning 30 Rock. Currently, he is appearing on HBO’s Veep. He also played Baymax in Disney’s Academy Award winning Best Animated Feature, Big Hero 6.
Adsit will be joined for his UK gigs by some of London’s top improvisers for two nights of freewheeling comedy, all made up on the spot, with no script and no idea where the night will take them.
The first show, on June 30th, Scott will be performing with award-winning UK-based improv group The Maydays. While on the 1st of July he will be performing his show Adsit And Friends, with support from London-based improv group Improvable, who play their own mix of fast-paced original games – a bit like “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” but even higher energy and more ridiculous.
Doors at 7.30pm. Shows start at 8pm. Tickets are just £8. Advance booking recommended.
