An All-Female, Improvised, Musical Comedy
And why that isn't a triumvirate of horrors
Two sell-out fringe runs, a massive hipster following and an actual award from the Vaults
2017 can't be wrong. At the very least Notflix definitely won't be as bad as you think it'll be,
which is an absolute guarantee of exceeded expectations.
Notflix is an entirely improvised comedy musical based on a movie title suggested by the audience
and using the location, key scenes, favourite characters and actors as a jumping off point to create
a brand new narrative. All scenes, songs and vocals are improvised spontaneously by the cast and
a live band with no preparation or planning. It's improv, so that's kind of the deal.
As demonstration of the underground, (almost) overnight success of Notflix, just look at a selection
of the quite high profile commendations the show has achieved, proof if it were still needed that a
number of producers think the show isn't that bad. Notflix completed a five star, total sell out run at
the Gilded Balloon at the Edinburgh Fringe 2016, a total sell out run at The Vaults Festival 2017
where they also won 'Highly Commended' in The Vaults Awards, were nominated as the Evening
Standard Pick of the Vaults Fringe 2017, the Marie Claire Magazine Pick of the Fringe 2016, The
Sunday Times Pick of the Edinburgh Fringe 2015, The Elle Magazine UK pick of the Edinburgh
Fringe 2015, were Semi finalists in both Funny Women and the Laughing Horse New Act of the
Year and nominated for the Musical Comedy Awards 2016. They were also featured in an interview
in The Times alongside improv royalty Showstoppers and Austentateous which they were very
pleased about, some would say insufferably so.
So break the mound, channel your inner-Patrick Swayze and tell the world that nobody puts the
Improv ladies in the corner, and come along to see Notflix, in the full and safe knowledge that the
show will definitely be better than you think it will be. There's also a higher than average chance
that you'll really enjoy it.
