Improv Comedy Wednesday: Yachtlosple / Freudians / Petunias (EN)
Impro Neuf International brings you Oslo’s premier English improv comedy! From an audience suggestion, every scene is made up in front of your eyes without a script, like magic. Fresh shows every week by a rotation of teams hosted by The Improv Speakeasy.
Yachtlosple may or may not be a word in ancient Macedonian. It may be used to describe an activity which is silly and playful, but at the same time truthful. We are a group of five improvisors who are playing improv in the style of Yachtlosple. Scenes that are silly, playful and truthful. We promise to avoid playing scenes in ancient Macedonian, but you may see Mandarin, Chinese, Dutch or Kebabnorsk being used.
Yachtlosple is Aiwei Su, Martine Osdal, Magnus Lomax Bjerke, Simen Wright, Franziska Hellmuth

Petunias were originally seeded behind the iron curtain, each in their own country, that is to say in Poland and Hungary. After the curtain dropped and their pots were getting too tight they got exported to Oslo, Norway in different curious ways. Although the cold north is not exactly their climate, they got assimilated quite well and found each other while playing volleyball, board games, and joining a certain cult. Petunias are Natalia Wydra and Brigitta Peto.
The Improv Speakeasy is the founding house team of Impro Neuf International. We love high culture and lowbrow humor: you can never guess if the next scene will be a Shakespearean tragedy or Family Guy. A curious mix of clowns, actors, hula hoopists, museum curators, doctors and neuroscientists, we aim for both heart and brain in one show.
Speakeasy is Aree Witoelar, Johanne Hofseth, Sverre Breian, Robin Sverd, Magnus Aasheim, Benedicte Alnæs, Eivind Hildre Spilling and Helene Holbæk. Official: improvspeakeasy.com
