The Yes Queens
with Rachel Parris
This event has now finished.
Grab your weekend by the crown jewels and say yes to a raucous night of comedy with the women ruling the improv scene.
Join us every other Friday for central London’s first female-led comedy improv night. Each week a different line-up of queens, with a special guest, will grab the sceptre and hilariously hold court for an evening of spontaneous scenes, sketches and games created on the spot with suggestions from you, the audience.
