We are a VERY social group, just turn up and say hello!
Each week some of the best improvisers in Birmingham take to the stage to deliver Fat Penguin Improv's own unique style of high energy, high concept comedy - all without a script!
The performers will take a suggestion from the audience and then tell a true-life story directly based on the suggestion. The rest of the performers then create a series of comedy scenes inspired by their story. This show takes a very intimate look at the lives of our performers, then ruthlessly explores the comic premises from within those stories in a typically high-paced Fat Penguin style.
The show is 100% unscripted.
The Armando Diaz experience first appeared in 1995 at iO Chicago, inspiring similar shows to start up all over the world.

After every show we have a break, grab a drink, then head back on stage for our informal Jam, where we offer students and members of the audience a chance to get on stage with our house team and feel what it is like.
