The Long Shots Improv Comedy Troupe performs various forms of improv for their live audiences.
Founded by Jason Delplanque in 2011, the collective consists of an international cast that hails from South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States. In addition to their shows, the company offers a variety of classes and workshops throughout the year for all who are interested. Beginners are given the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the craft, while more experienced improvisers can sharpen their skill.
The comedy troupe were regulars at the Armchair Theatre, a performance hub in Observatory, Cape Town, as well as the Alexander Bar Theatre, which was one of Cape Town’s leading independent theatres. The team now focuses on providing online shows and weekly 'drop-in' sessions that can be streamed live on their social media platforms.
