Welcome to a special themed set of interviews for the lead up to Christmas – celebrating all the wonderful festive shows that are on this year. I have sat down with a bunch of troupes to find out more about the shows that they are performing.
Today we speak to Dogface Improv to talk all about their Christmas Party that they are bringing to Jurnet’s Bar in Norwich on the 6th of December.
What is the show that you are bringing to the stage in this Festive season?
Dogface Christmas Jam, or should that be mince pie!
Will there be a bit of festivity in your show?
What are your favourite things about the festive season and why?
This time of year the venues tend to be a bit busier as well – do you find that the audience changes at all?
What advice would you give for people performing around the festive season – is it important to drop a Christmas related theme into it?
What is the best thing about a night at Dog Face Improv for the audience?
If people want to find out more about you where can they follow you on social media?
On FB, Twitter, instagram or online just look for Dogface Improv
What is YOUR favourite show you have done this year and why?
Oh no, this is like choosing your favourite child (mine is John, oops sorry Daisy!!) No, at a push, maybe at one of our trips to Cambridge to perform? We performed there twice with two different troupes, and really, they were great hosts and we loved being in a new venue.
And Finally in three words – Why should people come and see the show?
CHRISTMAS QUICK FIRE ROUND
