Set List: Standup Without A Net

Circuit comedians improvise a set on a spontaneously-given list of topics as if it’s their actual material – I have to say, I was massively disappointed by this. Having heard a few comedians in podcasts refer to it as pure adrenaline-fuelled craziness, when I saw it it just sort of seemed like an improv game to me, except one which featured standups instead of improvisers. Overall I enjoyed all of the UK comics’ contributions much more than the US ones, although Robin Williams and Greg Proops outshone every single other one I saw, and presumably then because they’re already master improvisers. So yeah, it’s improv.
